4 weeks to learn the basics of narrative design and build a game. Game Writing Primer

Learn the basics of game writing while incorporating a strong, compelling story into a game of your own in this 4-week story-based game bootcamp.

Whether you’re brand new to making games or are just looking to level up your skills, all are welcome. You can bring an existing game you’re working on in the engine of your choice or start from scratch to create an entirely new story-based game. In four weeks, you’ll gain an understanding of how to tackle the challenges of writing for games. By the end of the month, you’ll have a playable demo that can be featured in any one of Playcrafting NYC’s Demo & Play nights.

While any game creation method or engine is welcome, we’ve partnered with One More Story to provide StoryStylus at a steep discount ($15 total for 2 years of hosting) for newcomers with no coding or engine background who are  in need of a place to start. Games made with this software will have the opportunity for publication through One More Story Games. Again – no coding skills necessary! Story Stylus was especially developed for writers and may also be used as a fast prototyping device by more skilled students.

A game written and published by you is just waiting to be made. Learn narrative design and make great storytelling moments part of your game.
