|Session Name:||Snap to Character: Building Strong Player Attachment Through Narrative|
|Company Name(s):||Hangar 13 Games|
|Track / Format:||Design|
|Overview:||There are some games that just hook you, and keep you up late wondering about characters' lives, loves, hopes and fears. What's the secret to creating compelling narratives that will encourage emotional attachment among your audience? How do you get your players to come along for the ride, and care about characters' fate? Pulling from experience working on The Walking Dead: Seasons 1 & 2, and co-creating Tales from the Borderlands, this session will dive deeper into the lessons learned (and mistakes made) creating fully realized characters and compelling stories around them.|
