|Session Name:||Game Narrative Summit: Building Rome in a Day: A Sociological Storytelling Primer|
|Company Name(s):||Monolith Productions|
|Track / Format:||Game Narrative Summit|
|Overview:||Sociological storytelling is where the story's focus in the game narrative centers on the inherent struggles between larger societal forcesusually told through the lens of characters who must deal with the impact of this struggle. It is character-driven but not about the characters. It's about the struggles and forces that are bigger than any one person. And they can lead to extremely satisfying narrative experiences. In this talk, Jennifer Allaway lays out the benefits of approaching game narratives with this lens, analyzes games that are great examples of sociological storytelling, and delivers practices that guests can take home with them and try in their current games.|
