Explainer: the Art of Video Game Writing, Brooke Maggs , 2016 single work essay

'Imagine writing a story where the first thing the “reader” asks when they begin is: what do I do?

'The answer might be one or all of these things: explore, survive, observe, solve, form a strategy, make decisions.

'Game writing is a type of storytelling where the reader is a player. Everything about the game, like the environment, the characters, the rules and the gameplay, can be opportunities to tell the story. This makes game writing extremely collaborative, technical and iterative.' (Introduction)
