Writing, Games and Stories each have their own rules. Rules that can be broken. But before that can happen it's good to know how all three can connect. The Writing Game examines different approaches to storytelling to see how they fit into the narrative design of video games.
All stories and games are designed. Some just have more forethought than others. Even if you're a writer who says they create by the seat of their pants, you're writing within a set of rules. Which isn't necessarily an attitude one can have when it comes to creating a game. That's why the Writing Game is examining how the rules of storytelling fit together with the rules of game design to create a cohesive whole.
