005 – Emergent Narrative & Storytelling in Board Games
Hello fellow adventurers and welcome to the Nerdlab – Where we transform our gaming passion into incredible game designs and learn how to nerd like a boss.
In Episode 5 of the Nerdlab, we will talk about storytelling. What is a story and why do we want one for our games. Today you will learn the difference between scripted narrative and emergent narrative and how you can use a narrative to create emotion, engagement and memorable experiences in your game.
We are looking into Games like Legends of Andor, Aventuria, Arkham Horror Card Game and Lord of the Rings Card Game to analyze how these games deliver their story with help of their mechanics.
