Sketching and Storyboard for Game Designers course aims to introduce students to the specific demands of story development and writing for video games. Whereas narrative in film and television is linear, game narratives are generally interactive and nonlinear. As such, different techniques must be used in the conception, writing, and presentation of narrative scripts for various game platforms. Students will study narrative and writing in existing games across a variety of genres and will be asked to develop their scripts. To present their story ideas visually, students will also study the industry practice of storyboarding before going into the production stage.
