Keeping the Player at the Heart of the Story
The following is the first chapter in Narrative Tactics for Mobile and Social Games: Pocket-Sized Storytelling (CRC Press), due to be published on August 15, 2018. It has been excerpted and modified for the blog-post format. Here’s a premise for you: It’s you against the world . . . A fight for survival, you have to wipe out all of your enemies, or they’ll obliterate you from existence. You must do whatever you can to stay alive. Outwit them before they figure out your plans.
