Video Game Narrative

If you are a writer looking to break into video games or currently work in the game industry but want a better understanding of how narrative works in your context, it is beneficial to explore the process of creating the narrative for a game. Learn how to craft effective narrative and why it is important to a satisfying gaming experience. Apply narrative design and writing techniques to a series of practical exercises and come away with a basic creative bible for a game of your own design.
