The Writing Game is live!
My new podcast & YouTube series is now available!
I've just launched a new show that's about writing and video games. More specifically it's about how to do each together and better. Where most shows analyze one or the other and are a discussion of them, The Writing Game aims to provide concrete ideas on how the stories can better work in games.
Writing, Games and Stories each have their own rules. Rules that can be broken. But before that can happen it's good to know how all three can connect. The Writing Game examines different approaches to storytelling to see how they fit into the narrative design of video games.
All stories and games are designed. Some just have more forethought than others. Even if you're a writer who says they create by the seat of their pants, you're writing within a set of rules. Which isn't necessarily an attitude one can have when it comes to creating a game. That's why the Writing Game is examining how the rules of storytelling fit together with the rules of game design to create a cohesive whole.
