Feedback form is now closed.
Description:
Stories enchant our audiences and stay in our minds for months and years. Research shows that while participating in stories (through reading, watching, playing), many areas of our brains are activated.
In key moments, the brain chemistry is flooding our system with dopamin, a chemical messenger that plays a major role in reward-motivated behaviour, the same as drugs do. So, is storytelling a drug?
This talk will be about what stories have to offer Games to loop in an audience and keep their attention, and passion, alive.

Take Away
Knowledge on how storytelling affects players and how we can use that to impress our audience.

Audience Adressed: Designers of story-heavy games
