The video is now available on Youtube.
A video game legend
Today, Amy Hennig is recognized worldwide as a talented video game creator, whose works are among the best games in history. After studying English literature and cinema, the young Amy launched herself into the professional world in 1989, starting as a freelancer for the development of NES titles. Over the course of her missions, the young woman realizes that video games are her true passion, and that the narrative power of the medium will allow her to create the works she wishes.. She quickly joined the ranks of Electronic Arts, but, feeling too restrained by the imposing structure, decided to join a much more modest studio: Crystal Dynamics.
There, she accumulates positions of responsibility but finds herself once again crushed by immense pressure. Amy does not let herself be defeated, however, and successively signs the emblematic titles Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver, Soul Reaver 2 and finally Legacy of Kain: Defiance. She will then end up leaving the studio, to go work at Naughty Dog and sign one of the most cult sagas of the decade: Uncharted. And that’s when the descent into hell begins for our genius creator…
A chaotic journey

A contribution that has not always been recognized at its fair value, especially by his peers. Lonely and out of breath in the face of the many challenges imposed on her on the development of Uncharted 4, the creator is kindly thanked by Naughty Dog, depriving her of her work in the process.. To bounce back, Amy Hennig signs her return to Electronic Arts but once again the fate persists and her time at Visceral Games quickly takes a hellish turn…
