Interactive Storytelling Writeathon

March 23, 2011

Hey everyone!

Do you like games with a strong story – Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Bioshock and the like? Have you ever thought about being a writer for games?  Narrative design is a rapidly growing aspect of game development and writing non-linear and interactive stories is a challenging but very fun experience. Thus, next Saturday, April 2nd – two days after next Thursday’s talk on time management – we will be holding our first narrative-related event: the Interactive Storytelling Writeathon.

Come out and flex your writing muscles as you develop any kind of interactive, story-based adventure with any tools you have available. There will be a theme and some suggestions for those who are not certain about how they want to approach it. The result will be a short, story-based adventure to share with other participants. Nothing but an interest in interactive storytelling is required. Come out, write, and talk about story in games!


What: Interactive Storytelling Writeathon

When: Saturday, April 2nd, 11AM-8PM

Where: AL 211

What you get: A chance to try your hand at game writing with like-minded people and a completed story-based interactive adventure – or close to it – to showcase to friends and potential employers

What you need: An interest in interactive storytelling


Hope to see you there!
