Root and Branch with Scott Edgar

Scott Edgar – artist, writer, composer and comedian – guides this introduction to the dynamic art of writing multistrand narratives. Wether you’re wanting to write for video games, role-playing games, interactive experiences, or just want to weave a complex story, these are the skills that will help you do so.

In this workshop we’ll be looking at this huge fledgling art form and together delve into its connections with age-old storytelling traditions, identifying lessons from the past while unraveling the unique challenges presented by interactive narratives.

We’ll also discuss some of the specifics of the craft, including ways to think about branching narratives, different views on character, world building versus plot, and how game mechanics interact with storytelling.
