Brainstorming - it’s an art form all its own, and it flies in the face of the typical game-development process. We’ve led successful brainstorming sessions for original and adapted IP, and it’s one of our favorite parts of any project. If you need great results, fast, we can deliver the goods.
Build a strong gaming IP that can live on in comics, or novels, or television shows. We’ll help your team create an IP that will work across multiple platforms, taking full advantage of the storytelling advantages of each medium.
Your team is crunching hard, dealing with a thousand moving parts. Is your story still on track? In the heat of production, it is easy to lose sight of the big picture. We can provide an expert story analysis, along with a roadmap you can use to correct course.
How does your story build over time? If your game’s design changes, will the narrative fall apart? We use our deep expertise in structure and chapter-based storytelling to help teams build a plot that will be flexible enough to grow and change through development.
If your goal is to earn a Metacritic score of 90+, and you’re not Call of Duty, your game will have to have a great story. And it won’t be told by just one person – everybody on the team will play a part. You need a deep bench. In our workshops, we turn game developers into storytellers. We cover a range of topics, from narrative fundamentals to master-level story development. We also provide genre-specific workshops, so that your team will know what players expect from your sci-fi or action-adventure story. With this training, your team will be on track to avoid the kind of costly storytelling mistakes that have plagued so many other studios.
