Developing Narrative Games Workshop
Headed by Ernest Adams
Guest speaker: Charles Cecil
February 25 2005 - March 03 2005, HFF, Munich, Germany

In this intensive five-day workshop, the participants will work both alone
and in teams to develop a design treatment for a narrative game. They will
begin by studying the fundamental principles of computer game design, and
then go on to explore the relationship between interactivity and narrative.
There will be a few lectures, but most of the activities will be fully
hands-on, involving brainstorming, discussion, and presentations from the
participants to the group. By the end of the workshop each team will have
addressed a number of critical design issues, including genre, platform,
target audience, user interface, the player's role, temporal structure,
narrative structure, character and back story creation, perspective, tool
set, and media usage.

The training is aiming in the first place at professionals
(developers, writers, producers, designers, programmers...)coming from MEDIA
member countries. Applicants coming from other countries please contact the
sagas office for details.

In any case participation is limited to confirmed participants.
Participation fee:
 - freelancers EURO 400,-
 - companies EURO 1600,-
