Introduction

WithRoss Berger

Narrative design has been at the forefront of video game development since its coining in 2007. But it’s been gradually taking on more prominence as game developers steadily see the value of what a writer brings to the table. While the challenges of showing relevance persist, there’s no question about the impact a narrative designer has on the creation of a video game IP.

This book gives a sobering view of what to expect in this industry and makes it clear who this book is for: students, writers from another field, entertainment executives, game designers, media technologists, and AI content designers.
