In this intensive five-day workshop, the participants will work
both alone and in teams to develop a design treatment
for a narrative game.
They will begin by studying the fundamental principles
of computer game design, and then go on to explore the
relationship between interactivity and narrative.
There will be a few lectures, but most of the activities
will be fully hands-on, involving brainstorming, discussion,
and presentations from the participants to the group.
By the end of the workshop each team will have addressed
a number of critical design issues, including genre, platform,
target audience, user interface, the player's role,
temporal structure, narrative structure, character and
back-story creation, perspective, tool set, and media usage.
