Great article.

 

The player is now not a witness, he is not being guided through a story. He is now a part of it. It's not a case of watching a character. The player is the character, the character is an extension of the player in the same way a car is. The character therefore inherits all the personality traits of the player. This can create situations that detriment a linear story, - click and read more.

Learning by doing or through play has always been a successful method - today it's the same but in digital format and far more engaging - will it have better results than non digital story telling / teaching methods?

Katie Chase's curator insight, December 5, 2013 5:28 AM

Storytelling for games seems difficult because the original author has to come up with so many alternative endings. Whoever is playing the game hears and sees a story that is uniquely theirs. This type of interaction really does set gaming apart from other types of media, such as television and film. I believe this is what attracts people to games. –Aellise Czupryna

The WASTELANDER PANDA Saga! Part 1. Development: Creating the Storyworld of Wastelander Panda

The WASTELANDER PANDA Saga! Part 1. Development: Creating the Storyworld of Wastelander Panda | Machinimania | Scoop.it

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's insight:

Victoria wanted to try to translate the experience of her favourite video games to film – where players don’t just have one pathway to follow, but can go out and explore a vast world.  She came up with the idea of a post-apocalyptic wasteland.  The idea of the protagonist being a panda started as a rhyming joke – Wastelander Panda! – and became more serious over time

Kirsty Stark (Producer), Ella Macintyre (PMD) and Victoria Cocks (Writer/Director):  "One of the first questions we’re asked when people hear about Wastelander Panda is “How did you come up with the idea?”  It’s a strange concept – the meshing of two ideas that don’t necessarily fit – but this seemingly incongruous pairing is one reason we believe the project has had so much attention so far" ...


A great article about a great project!

Interesting article. -

 

In the midst of the massive geek Mecca that is San Diego Comic-Con, the big Marvel Studios movie panel had all the theater of a presidential campaign rally. Tom Hiddleston appeared in costume as Loki, the bad guy from Thor, and rallied the crowd in character. Then: so many movie stars, including the full casts of the upcoming Captain America sequel and Guardians of the Galaxy. And just when it seemed like it was over, Joss Whedon, patron saint of nerds, walked out for a Steve Jobsian one-more-thing and introduced the first teaser for The Avengers sequel. Eight thousand fans, some of whom had been waiting in line since the night before, shrieked like their souls were being ripped from their bodies.

7 Deadly Sins of Worldbuilding

7 Deadly Sins of Worldbuilding | Machinimania | Scoop.it

Via The Digital Rocking Chair
Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's insight:
1. Not thinking about basic infrastructure.

How do they eat? What do they eat? Who takes away the garbage? Who deals with their bodily wastes? How do they get around? What do the majority of people do to survive? You're not just constructing a society, you're creating an economy. People don't oppress each other for fun — usually, systems of hierarchy and oppression have an economic component to them. Maybe you need a lot of peasants to grow labor-intensive crops, or maybe you need lots of cannon fodder in your space war. Maybe your only source of protein is a weird fungus that needs to be tended by specially trained people. Maybe everybody's eating algae. In any case, there's nothing worse than a fictional world where there are elaborate social structures, which seem completely separated from the realities of food, shelter and clothing.

Really helpful checklist for the novelist (or screenwriter or playwright). 

Juliana Loh's curator insight, August 4, 2013 3:42 PM

Having worked on an even smaller RPG project, I've had to build out and consider all aspects of our world both visually and wrt narrative. Responding to situations required designing the society mindset. Without that mindset, we wouldn't have known how to visually represent our world economically, socially aesthetically and politically.

Brand experience is already 'transmedia,' but the opportunity with media convergence is to make it a coordinated story-based experience designed for audience participation.  Narrative = cognitive coherence and participation = stakeholders.
