Free Talk in SF: Multi-Linear Narratives – Letting the Player Lead the Game

July 31, 2010

I am giving a talk at a women’s mixer at my employer Lolapps on August 26th. The talk is free, but registration is required. We’re located in downtown SF at 116 New Montgomery Street. Parking is convenient in the SOMA garage.

Multi-Linear Narratives: Letting the Player Lead the Game

Entering a city, a house or any other interactive environment, different people have unique desires which the ideal environment both receives and responds to. This is not so with many games, however. In the most interactive of environments, players are often led, railroad style, down a prescribed path toward fixed ends. In this talk, award-winning game designer Brenda Brathwaite explores this problem and offers some solutions through the use of multi-linear narratives and the role of the un-storied mechanic in creating an experience players believe they crafted.
