|Session Name:||The Shapes in Your Story: Narrative Mapping Frameworks|
|Company Name(s):||Northeastern University|
|Track / Format:||Game Narrative Summit|
|Overview:||Maps are everywhere in narrative design, whether it's the three-act structure or the hero's journey or a geography of where there are dragons. But can we do more with our maps than just plot our characters' emotional and physical journeys? Jay Taylor-Laird has worked with dozens of student and professional design teams to identify the best ways to visually document the complexities of interactive narratives. Well-designed maps can help narrative designers to visually identify their interactive stories' strengths and weaknesses. In this talk, you will learn how to more effectively use a story map as a creative and analytical tool.|
