I've had some extraordinary conversations with fellow gamewriters recently about our inspirations and the games that made us choose this medium as the only viable means of expressing our stories. And I thought, "Why not share these conversations?" I couldn't think of a good way to worm out of it (my brain is a pest), so I'm starting a show on Twitch Creative.
Each week (or so) I'll have a guest gamewriter on to play any game of their choosing. They'll walk us through a section of the game and break down what's happening narratively. I think it'll be a lot of fun and very educational for anyone looking to get into gamewriting. Or for anyone who wants a deeper understanding of game story.
The title is tentatively "Story Goes Here," but I'm leaning more and more toward "A Million Monkeys" as a jab at all those people who think gamewriting is easy. That title was suggested by Aaron Linde, who will also be my first guest. We're playing Earthbound, I suspect.
I'll post more details as the show develops, so stay tuned!
