Swords’ talk, which comes alongside a book he’s released on the topic, helps developers create a narrative design strategy that can align everything from theme to narrative to game design.
In this 2020 GDC Virtual Talk, Alexander Swords presents The Forest Paths method: a workflow for game developers to develop their game narrative in tandem with their design components.
