Quips: Quick Tips for Game Narrative and Other Noodlings

Creating narrative for a video game has similar challenging, frustrating, and fun elements as those you encounter when putting together a jigsaw puzzle. Both tasks require critical thinking and the ability to see the big picture as well as the details.

Half the battle is learning how to evaluate each piece and determine where it belongs in the grand scheme of things. The following questions can help guide your narrative design toward stronger, more cohesive storytelling.

Not So Secret Society Game Club

We are Dani, Jen, Nellie, Pamela, and Angel; gamer chicas who love puzzle adventure games. Our playthroughs are a hoot.

Join us as we shoot the shit and explore the many awesome games available for those of us with busy lives and a taste for mysteries and good stories.

Who are we? We are all folks who love games so much that we work in the games industry.

Dani Roberge, Jen Page, Nellie Hughes, Pamela Wang, and Angel McCoy! Plus the occasional special guest!


Dani Roberge has over a decade of experience making games, and even more playing them. Coming mostly from a user interface design and art background, she tends to make (a lot of) comments about the usability of games. She believes that together, we can change the world…by shaming one bad UI at a time. When she’s not playing or making games, she’s probably out adventuring with her dog, criticizing real-world usability.

Jen Page is an actress and artist. She has worked for Wizards of the Coast and Games Omniverse. In addition, she’s had film roles in Dorkness Rising, Project London, and Revamping Doyle. Oh, and her cosplay is to die for! She stars in an amazing series of photographs in costume. Check out this video of the gorgeous gown she wore to the Ennies. She also has a Patreon for her fans. @TheJenPage on Twitter.

Nellie Hughes comes from over a decade of MMO design experience. Some of her favorite games include the Monkey Island, Bioshock, Fallout, and Kings Quest series. Her favorite things to do when she’s not working or nerding out on video games is to hang with her family traveling the world on a tight budget.

Pamela Wang is an artist & gamer. If you ever want to draw or paint with her, you can follow along with on YouTube at ArtistRage. And if you happen to want to game with her, follow her on Beam.

Angel McCoy is a writer for Remedy Entertainment, working on the mysterious game known as “P7”. She’s also creative director and narrative designer at her indie game company, Games Omniverse, working on a transmedia project in the Dire Multiverse. They are creating their first puzzle adventure game “Danika Dire”. @AngelMcCoy on Twitter

Drooburt was originally conceived by a GW2 narrative designer, the one and only Peter Fries.

anotherdimensionad-300x400The stories in this anthology come from wicked minds. They’re designed as cautionary tales and have the classic horror styling of a Twilight Zone or Night Gallery episode. For the most part, we kept the gore to a minimum in favor of telling scary stories full of atmosphere and strong characterization.

Many talented people were involved in creating this book. It was a work of love for the Rod Serling tradition.

Who is Rod Serling, you ask? I direct you to Netflix where you can watch all the old episodes of The Twilight Zone. Rod Serling was considered one of the greatest television writers of his era, along with Horror’s beloved Richard Matheson, who also wrote for the show. In this anthology, you’ll also get non-fiction about Serling and his legacy. Every Horror aficionado should know Serling’s name and be familiar with his work.
