|Session Name:||Game Narrative Summit: Turn Your Writers Into Programmers: Greyboxing Narrative with Story Languages|
|Speaker(s):||Jon Manning, Ryan North|
|Company Name(s):||Secret Lab, Dinosaur Comics|
|Track / Format:||Game Narrative Summit|
|Overview:||Writers and narrative designers are often used to working in one of two modes: abstract, high-level design of narrative systems, or lower-level line management. Wouldn't it be nice to have somewhere in between?nnIn this talk, learn how narrative scripting systems designed to bridge the gap between programming and writing allow writers to block out the logic of a game's story, allowing them to contribute to a runnable narrative implementation at a far earlier stage of the game than would usually be possible.nnJoin Ryan North (Destiny 2, Marvel Comics) and Jon Manning (Night in the Woods), as we explore how to build systems for faster, reactive, and more sustainable narrative development.|
