|Session Name:||Stories, Meaning and Emergent Narrative: A Therapy Session|
|Track / Format:||Game Narrative Summit|
|Overview:||For years, the bitter conflict between ludology and narrative - between game mechanics and story - divided the games industry. Today, though there are still mild skirmishes, an era of peaceful co-existence is dawning. Mechanics and story are seldom seen as mutually exclusive; in some places, they are even seen as complementary. But sometimes it's easier for two opposed camps to reach an accord than it is for one individual to reconcile their own mind. Join the speaker, a hybrid writer/game designer, as he works to reconcile his own conflicting feelings on art, story and emergent narrative.|
