Game Narrative Summit: Build-A-Bae Workshop: Crafting Creative Love Interests


Love interests - whether they are flirty vampires, depressed elves, or struggling novelists - are as varied as the games that they are in. Where do you start when creating them? What is a love interest? How do you create one that fits your game and will be enjoyable to players? Games Writer and Narrative Designer Adanna Nedd has written and developed love interests for two years. In this talk, she will discuss the ins and outs of love interests - what they are, who they are, and how they can enhance the game's experience! She will also discuss how she crafted love interests for Spirit Swap and Kiss U and the challenges and constraints that she faced.
