Fancy fonts sir!

Where are you from?
NYC

Name/handle
Chris

What was the last game you played?
Terraria. Like Minecraft, only flatter. The artwork is fun, the upgrades are awesome, and it satisfies my apparent urge to build things with squares and upgrade st*ff.

Name a really great game, and something really great about it
Baldur's Gate 2. The story and the game play well together, and all the tiny bits of atmosphere add up. Minsc and Boo are the best ranger-miniature giant space hamster team ever created.

General Discussion / How to Write an Interactive Story - Proposal
« on: March 05, 2012, 03:50:32 PM »
For the inaugural h2w, I think we should start with something simple and fun. Here's a suggestion:

Twice a week, I'll post an article or subject related to game design to talk about. We all take turns posting thoughts or reactions afterwards. We can do this for 8 different subjects and at the end of it, see how it went.

What do you think?

How to Write an Interactive Story

What is it?

Are you interested in writing games? We’re going to start an online seminar/workshop where we work on and discuss games together. In Writing a Modern Interactive Story, we’ll study video games– their overall experience, the mechanics and what makes them fun. We’ll then apply that knowledge to designing interactive books, creating games that combine good story writing with modern thoughts on game design.

Who is this class for?

People who play games on their own and are thinking about writing a game.
