Speech description:

 

We think in stories. Narratives are tools we use to make sense of the world, both in life and in games. Seeing how all stories work in a similiar way, and how all gameplay loops share their structure with stories, we will explore the similarities and look for tools that will help us design better games. This talk, inspired by John Yorke’s book “Into the Woods. How stories work and why we tell them”, and based on over ten years of experience in the industry, aims to present a consistent narrative-driven approach to game design.
