Sample text

Though few of us would like to read our novels this way, in games it is a valid means of portraying the story, but only if it is handled well. The player must have had an enjoyable 19 01 video games 20 30/8/06 4:14 pm Page 20 OVERVIEW gameplay experience of working towards that portion of the story. This kind of linear story-telling works best when the player feels it has been revealed as a direct result of their actions. The progress of the story is directly tied into gameplay success.

It is possible that the writer may be brought in much later as part of a well-planned development process where the studio wants to be sure that they can prove the gameplay ideas through prototyping before developing the story and characters. It may be that the studio has not even considered using a writer, but during development feels that the game is lacking something and needs the skills of a writer to work some kind of magic.
