Speech description

Dive into the world-building and narrative development process at Remedy where nuanced narrative mood of the New Weird, like rituals and dream-logic, evolved into a new game sequence in Control. This sequence, the Oceanview Motel and Casino, is a transient area that reoccurs throughout the game, where Jesse must complete ritual-like puzzles to access new areas of the Oldest House. The talk will cover the evolution of the Motel sequences, from idea to final experience, and will show how narrative cohesion was maintained throughout development.
