Step into a realm where narrative writing and gameplay intertwine. 

Explore the multidimensional world of game writing, where the boundaries of traditional storytelling are challenged, and the player becomes part of the narrative.

All kinds of games need stories and narrative arcs: whether they’re tabletop role player games, choose your own adventure games, or even mobile games.

Writing for games uses a variety of creative skills: fiction writing, scripting, technical skills, expansive world building, and a deep understanding of player agency.

In this 6-week workshop you’ll learn:

  • How to craft stories for different game platforms: RPGs, mobile, choose your own adventure
  • How to design intricate narratives with multiple pathways and outcomes
  • How to understand player agency and how to incorporate it effectively
  • Hands-on basic coding to bring your game ideas to life

From creating a complex web of multiple pathway storytelling, to coding your own game, this class will give you the tools to begin building your game writing portfolio. Learn and hone your game writing skills under Rosiee’s expert guidance.
