    • GAMES NEED TO:
      • Work
      • Be fun to play
      • Have a [good?] story. But - it’s actually optional.
    • Why Point #3 is optional : Games must first of all `work’ (ie have no `bugs’, and not crash). Secondly - must be fun (not frustrating to play – the gameplay `hook’ is the key here) and thirdly – they CAN have a great story… but since this 3 rd point is optional (Gameplay is king, any Story is secondary), we have only gradually seen `literary’ game narratives emerge: e.g. Myst, Half Life, Deus Ex, Halo, Metal Gear Solid, Bioshock, etc)…

  • Film Screenwriting vs Game Design
    • Film Writing Process:
    • Premise
    • Theme
    • Characte r
    • Plot
    • Structure
    • Dialog
    • Story = Character + Plot
    • End product = 3 Acts /
    • 60 Scenes
    •  
    •   Game Design process (e.g. FPS):
    • Good Guys (Player, Ally NPCs)
    • Bad Guys (Enemy grunts, Boss/es)
    • Items (Ammo, Health, Upgrades)
    • Weapons
    • Vehicles (?)
    • Locations
    • Level Design = Gameplay + Story
    • End product – 30 Levels over 10 Missions ie 10 Chapters (of 3 `Acts’ each)
  • Game Dev Teams
    • A typical `AAA’ Game Dev team :
    • 50 people, fulltime, for 2 years: 
    • 2 Producers, a Project Manager, a Game Designer (like the Director on a film), a Junior Game Designer, 5 Level Designers/Builders, 15 Programmers, 15 Artists, 2 Sound guys, a Music guy, an Interface Designer, a Cutscene Animation team (4 guys), 1 Voice Talent (if you collapse `24 actors working for a month each', into `one person working for 2 years'), and - a Writer
    • (So - 50 people, and sorry they are not all `guys', 5% are actually female)
  • % Breakdown
    • Another way to look at it, using the staff numbers above: a Game is
    • 4% Design
    • 6% Production,
    • 10% Level Design/Building,
    • 30% Programming,
    • 30% Art,
    • 6% Sound & Music,
    • 2% Interface,
    • 8% Cutscenes,
    • 1% Voice Talent,
    • 2% Writing...
  • `Boyz’ vs `Girlz’ Gamez “ Boys” Games (eg `War’ games) Typified by: 1) competition 2) physical violence 3) a battle for territory 4) the elimination of competitors = say an FPS “ Girls” Games (`Sim’ games) Typified by: 1) building social relationships 2) communication 3) community 4) co-operation = say an MMORPG Prof .

  • GAME SCENARIO DESIGN, and GAME STORYTELLING & SPACE c/- Prof Henry Jenkins, MIT Game storytelling is often more about space , and less about character . …Why? Because Player freedom annihilates Character . Consider a ` Choose Your Own Adventure ’ book (over 250 million copies sold) - of all possible decisions, many are totally `out of character’ for the hero. But Games must allow for freedom of player expression, which often removes limits Character behaviour… enabling them to act out of character . Games narratives are therefore more about adventure, and moving through space . We can therefore look at Games as Spatial Stories … Game ads (promotional material) use screenshots . They show the audience (the Player) the space the game occupies... They show a potential to explore, to roam, and they present a notion of an immersive space.
    • Games as `Spatial Stories’/
    • Professor Henry Jenkins (cont)
    • Compare games with travel narratives – they are less about character development , more about the travel between spaces .
    • Consider most of Jules Verne’s work:
      • From the Earth To the Moon,
      • 20 000 Leagues Under the Sea,
      • A Journey to the Centre of the Earth,
      • Around the World in 80 Days.
      • If your [film] story has limited/non-interactive
      • locations, It may not adapt so well to a game…
    • Also, consider the front material in various classic works of literature:
      • War & Peace has a family tree in the frontispiece;
      • Solzenitzyn’s works have military organization charts (Battalions, Generals, Sergeants, Privates etc);
      • Pat O’Brien’s sea stories have a diagram explaining the ship’s parts.
      • Tolkein has maps.. .
      • … Games often have Maps as well.
    • DOCUMENTS GENERATED:
      • Game Concept (3 pages)
      • Game Pitch (10 pages)
      • Game Design Document (GDD: 30 - 200 pages)
      • 60-Page Art/Character Bible
      • 30 pages of Cutscenes (in film screenplay format)
      • Tech Specs doc (TDD)
    • OTHER DOCS GENERATED ALONG THE WAY:
      • Story Pitch Doc (30 pages)
      • Gameplay Pitch Doc (30 pages)
      • Interactive Screenplay ( 5 00 pages / or Excel sheet)
      • Walkthru – incl. Shooting Script/Storyboards ( 70 pages per Level )
      • ONE KEY GAME/NON-LINEAR
      • WRITING TIP:
      • * KEEP IT MODULAR ! (So that your 10 Chapters can mostly be rearranged… but maybe Chapter 1 [your `intro’ level] and Ch 10 [the final level] are mandatory.)
      • So, this way - if a Level / Environment /Chapter gets cut/re-arranged during production… (or, turns out not to be `too hard/not fun’ in the Playtesting stage…)
        • Your narrative doesn’t suffer from `losing’ that Chapter of the story…
      • Ditto, if a Character gets cut in development…
        • As above… (make it so that losing this Game Character doesn’t `break the story’ as a whole…)
      • ALSO - `Make it Modular’ so that – perhaps the Player can choose their own path through the Story… ie They may want to explore a certain Environment first, so -- let them choose between (say) 3 different Levels – or, from 3 types of gameplay (choose: 1) on-foot, 2) driving, 3) flying)…
      • ie Vive le capitalism - `Choice is good’… 
    • GAME DESIGN / WRITING PROCESS
    •   Decide on type of game: a shooter, a driver, action - adventure, RP G ?
      • What type of M issions? Player `experience’?, Ramped –up difficulty.
    • Missions - l eads to - Game Scenarios / Locations / Situations – i. e . scenes! (I s it set mainly in a Kitchen - or a Spaceship? )
    • Locations/Scenarios dictate the `filmic genre’ – Westerns & S ci -F i – are about `conquering frontiers’ = so they have big `game maps/worlds’
    • Genre – usually dictates your Story (type)
    • Type of Story - dictates the types of Characters/ Archetypes (Heros/Villains)
    • Characters - speak Dialog = Scr een writing! Write Cutscenes to link Missions.
    • Development – Prototyping - Play-testing…
    • Then you have to write – Onscreen Text Help & “THE GAME MANUAL”
      • GAME DESIGN/WRITING PROCESS:
      • Also – Design / Structure (and Write!) your Levels/Chapters so that they all begin and end at the same place (ie – back at the game `HUB’ -- from which all/most other Levels are accessed.) e.g. say a Central Control Room, or a HQ, or a Game `Base’, etc etc.
      • Eg - GAME STRUCTURE / & `Tiers’ :
      • So -start with - The Game Intro Cutscene/FMV (say, 30 seconds long)
      • Play Level 1 (Like a Gameplay Tutorial , and intro the Characters & Story)
      • Then, at the Game `HUB’, the Player can maybe Choose from 3 different Levels in any order: ie Choose Level 2 - or 3 - or 4? ( Tier 1 – easy to play )
      • Then –Cutscene #2 plays - taking you back to `The Hub’ (…a new HUB?)
      • Then the Player can choose from: Level 5, or 6, or 7 in any order (call this `Tier 2’ – Medium difficulty to play ) - Etc…!
      • NB – But ensure that the First and also Last Chapters (eg 1 and 10) are mandatory, so that - as a Game/Story Designer - you know the Start and End of the Game Story … and the `middle’ can be in any order.
  • GAME OVERVIEW Genre Comedy Action-Adventure Target Platform PS2 (PAL, NTSC), Wii Xbox 360 Players 1 Player (with Companion Character) & 2 Player Co-Op.

  • Designing/Writing Looney Tunes 1) Basic `Game Vision’ / Story & WB client requests 2) Research (watching episodes, reading) 3) Choosing 10 game Levels (from 181 LT episodes)… - The 10 Chapters were like `10 Playable Episodes’ 4) Designing the Story for `Modularity’ 5) Scriptwriting – the Cutscenes and In-game Dialog 6) Cutscenes & Game Level re-writing of same 7) The Looney Tunes Comic… 8) The Manual/WB web site/promo material Looney Tunes ACME ARSENAL: Senior Designer & Writer: Joe Velikovsky Copyright 2007 - Redtribe/Warner Bros Interactive

  • * The FUTURE of Writing for Non-Linear? * PS3, Wii, Xbox360 – 10 years’ cycle * Mobile phones = scenario writing * More x-media Film/TV/Game properties... * Need: Better A.I. For NPCs!!! (the Turing Test) *... & ARG s!
  • Noah Falstein – the 400 Project The 400 `Game Design Rules’
    • QUESTIONS TO ASK - FOR THE POTENTIAL of
    • CONSOLE-GAME ADAPTATION OF A FILM…
    • What is the Key “situation” in the film/TV property (eg - Trapped on an island?)
    • Spatial stories: How to extend the story to `game space’? (eg LOST - phone games )
    • Locations? (How many, and What are they? Are they all fairly different?)
    • What type of M issions? (Get off the island, find food, shelter, rescue someone)
    • Characters/ Archetypes (Do you need extra ones for the game? - LOST)
    • WHAT IS THE `CORE GAME MECHANIC’ ...? – The `Hook’? Why play this game?
    • Why unique? (Points of Difference?) – FPS has been done...
    • Why the same? (Predecessors?) – FPS has been done!
    • Use an Existing Game Engine? Costs $$$
    • Consider other genres besides console games – ARG, handheld, pc, MMORPG?
    • NB - ACTION FILMS MAKE THE BEST GAMES... But action films are expensive!!!
  • “ Art has to move us. Design does not. (Unless it’s a good design for a bus.)” - David Hockney WILL GAMES EVER BE SERIOUS LITERATURE’? “Some games already are serious literature – just as much as novels - or films or comics. In fact, they’re sometimes technically more complex to write than a novel or film... Metal Gear Solid’s themes and polemic on morality is up there with `Crime & Punishment’… `Spiderman’ is the Hamlet of our times... Even back in the 80’s, there was a `civil disobedience’ game - where you played Ghandi… And check out `The Mythology of Kyoto’… which rewards you with `karma’ in gameplay. Games are really serious literature. The `Sam & Max’ games are as funny as any TV sitcom… in the new `Simpsons’ game, you go around collecting `platform game cliches’ - such as “The Double-Jump” - it’s as wittily intertextual and self-reflexive as any Italo Calvino novel… `Myst’ was like Shakespeare for the multimedia masses. What’s really ironic is, games don’t even need to be literary, they just need to be fun to play. Serious literature can include violence (Crime and Punishment!) and this is also why we need an R-rating for games... We may want to see the films `American Psycho’ and `Fight Club’ for their brilliant satire and biting socio-cultural commentary - but don’t necessarily want under-18’s to see it – not until they’re old enough to `get it’’… but - the average gamer is 28 years old now - And as for `games causing violence’? - Aristotle’s theory of Catharsis.” Joe Velikovsky, Game Writer-Designer-Producer, JOETEEVEE.COM - 2008
