Session Name:

Indiana Jones Adventure World: Narrative for Social Games


Indiana Jones Adventure World by Zynga is a unique social game with map-based gameplay and episodic storytelling. With serialized storytelling techniques from traditional Saturday matinees and Sunday comic strips like Flash Gordon, the team developed a collaborative process for providing players with weekly releases. This "writer's room" design process required the establishment of certain storytelling formulas and enabled creative discoveries. Senior Game Designer Steve Williams and Game Writer Jonathon Myers will discuss the lessons learned as members of the content team. Attendees will takeaway insights related to the pros and cons of designing interactive narrative for a social platform.
