Lucas is nominated by Jacob Hvid Amstrup, Co-founder at Gatewat with the following motivation:
Writing is not a new thing for Lucas. He has been writing fiction for years. But putting it in the context of the videogame format was uncharted territory prior to releasing his debut game “Inkslinger”, as one half of “Gateway”, the studio behind the project. To make the interactive story of “Inkslinger” unfold, Lucas had to teach himself new tools and ways of writing. His passion for games and the new, exciting opportunities the development process brought, made him elevate his writing, and bring home an Honorable Mention in the Excellence in Narrative category at the IGF 2021. Lucas is in the early stages of drafting the outline for Gateway’s next game, where he once again will build and populate a new and sprawling world, filled with the mysterious, weird and wonderful lives and fates of a diverse cast of characters. Other than being an always thorough and precise writer, Lucas is an amazing collaborator with lots of insight, an always curious mind and a clear and inspired vision of the worlds he wants to create.
