When 5 Becomes 3 – Preserving Narrative Integrity

April 17 at 3:15 pm - 4:15 pm

Room: 302C

By Mika JD Sorvari

Have you ever found yourself halfway through a project, only to be told to just yank away 30% of the story to meet “pressing production and budgetary concerns”? If you’re in the games industry, of course you have, and if you haven’t, then just wait for it.

This talk features some actual examples of the situation, and the things a writer will do when faced with it, as well as the things they probably should be doing instead to preserve narrative integrity. Other forms of integrity will also be explored, as well as the more far-reaching effects that these kinds of choices can have, not only on the story, but on the image of a studio still working to establish itself.
