Branching Storytelling in Game Writing

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

"Branching storytelling" describes a more complex form of game writing that allows players to shape their character's personality and relationships with NPCs. This difficult but exciting design style leads to highly reactive and rewarding gameplay. Our brief course will give attendees insight into the world of branching game development, and cover the following: *Fundamentals of game writing (the "Useful-Short-Interesting" triangle).
*How branching game writing differs from the above.
*Case study (either based on an existing game, or one made up from scratch. TBD.)
*Class practice/exercises/games to play with the class content.
*Q&A as time allows.
