|Session Name:||Getting a Team on Board with Narrative Design|
|Company Name(s):||Harmonix Music Systems|
|Track / Format:||Game Narrative Summit|
|Overview:||Narrative design is relatively easy. Negotiating a development process that allows for narrative design is hard. This talk will deal with the challenges a narrative designer will face at a company new to narrative design, what causes these challenges, and how to overcome them. It will focus heavily on how pipelines and approval processes built for non-narrative games make narrative design difficult, what myths of narrative cause the processes, and how to educate and negotiate through these problems toward a more narrative-friendly development process.|
