The design of 'Fragments of Him' is 100% driven by the goal of keeping the player involved in the story. This required many small design choices to be made about how to smooth the player's experience and how to amplify the narrative with the interactions. This talk will cover the successes and failures we came up against in the development of the game, including many practical examples of topics such as reticule design and iteration, forced player movement, removing interactions to create additional immersion, and more. The session delivers many tips you can apply to improve your own games.
Attendees will leave with an enhanced appreciation for the contribution of interaction design to players' narrative involvement, and many practical tips in how to apply similar principles to their own games.
The audience will be interface and interaction designers looking for further insight into how their craft influences narrative immersion, and game writers who wish to further understand narrative design.
