Intro to Game Modding - Lecture 6

  1. 1. IMED 105: Intro to Game Modding Lecture 6: Storycrafting Spring 2016
  2. 2. Your Mod
  3. 3. There are many elements which make up a game world. Some common devices are characters/items, events, a timeline, some mythology, creatures, and significant locations. As you build your mod, you’ll be crafting a world which has elements of it’s own. One method for integrating your mod with the original content is to share devices. Think of your mod as a hexagon (or octagon adding categories for magic and special) where each side represents a world element. The more sides that match up, the better experience for the player.

  4. 4. From Concept to Story structure Isolated village of Morthal in Hjaalmarch Morihaus, ancient hero god of the Imperials.

  5. 5. Planning your story
  6. 6. Hero’s Journey The Hero’s Journey (or Monomyth) is a storytelling structure used across all human societies. It was described by Joseph Campbell in 1949 as a common format for shaping the meaning of the human experience.

  8. 8. Go back and review your game concept documents. Select one concept, which you would like to continue developing into a functional mod. For this assignment you’ll need to outline the player’s goals and actions within your mod. Use the HerosJourney-Template.docx to identify the activities which guide the player’s progression during the game. Provide as much information as possible in the document. I don’t expect each box to be completely filled, but you should have something for each step. When completed upload the document to Moodle using the following naming convention - (first initial last name_course number_assignment number) example - DWilliams_CISC105_6.xls Assignment
