On Story Development
How do creators approach story in video games today? This episode explores how a recent movement in narrative-driven games has been down to an accumulation of new technologies, new voices and a rising demand within the market.

On Writing Process
The process of writing in pre-production and production usually sees a story evolve and change to dovetail and complement the game design and vice versa. Many times, a game creator or a studio will spend months testing an idea through prototyping before the game is greenlit.
