Gameplay as Story in Daedalic's 'The Pillars of the Earth'

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Description:
Videogames have been a storytelling medium long before the advent of text adventures. Nonetheless, gameplay and narrative have often been regarded as aspects that can or even should be seperated during development, peaking in the past "narratology vs ludology" debate within the discipline of game studies. This talk proposes that story and gameplay are, in fact, inseperable.
On the basis of the decisions made during Daedalic Entertainment's upcoming adaptation of Ken Follett's best-selling novel "The Pillars of the Earth", Assistant Creative Lead Valentina Tamer will discuss the creation of a story-driven videogame, and in how far gameplay and narrative can work together.

Take Away
Gameplay and storytelling must not be seperated during development. Gameplay can tell a story as well as words can, sometimes even better.

Audience Adressed: Game developers, designers & writers
