This event will be broadcast live on the Fed Square Big Screen!

The expression 'a Tim Schafer moment' is used among videogame experts and makers to describe an instance of great creativity or genius.

From studying computer science at the renowned UC Berkeley, to working at George Lucas' game production company LucasArts, and finally to founding his own production company, Double Fine Productions, Tim Schafer has made an undeniable mark on the international games industry.

Through his work on titles including Maniac Mansion, The Secret of Monkey Island and Full Throttle, Schafer has became known for his storytelling and comedic style.

With the 1995 release of his highly acclaimed Grim Fandango, a noir adventure game set in the Aztec afterlife that draws its inspiration from the Mexican holiday Dia De Los Muertos, Schafer cemented his place in games history and demonstrated the most momentous 'Tim Schafer moment' of all them all.

Following this sold-out event, Tim Schafer will sign copies of the Game Masters exhibition catalogue in an exclusive book signing*.
