Narrative Tactics for Mobile and Social Games:

Pocket-Sized Storytelling

 

The only book on narrative design and game writing for mobile and social games! Mobile games, because of their technological limitations, have unique strengths and weaknesses when it comes to storytelling. Narrative Tactics for Mobile and Social Games focuses on player agency, worldbuilding, characters, dialogue, and quest/mission design for the small screen. In addition, the second half of the book looks at demographics/audiences and popular genres for mobile games and developing stories for them.
