Matteo Pozzi - Storytelling in games is (not) the new black

626 views

Published on

A quote by Id Software's John Carmack says that "story in a game is like in a porn movie, it's expected to be there but it's not that important". Or is it? Or does it vary from case to case and, if so, what does it depend on? As narrative games - both indie and AAA - have grown in popularity during this decade, we take a closer look at this topic from a game design perspective, drawing on our recent experiences in games that range from pure narrative (visual novel "Venti Mesi") to hybrid like Santa Ragione's narrative racing "Wheels of Aurelia" to our first narrative-free puzzle "SIHEYU4N".
