“Stories are learnings for the ages”
Any educator can tell you a story is the most compelling form of learning and by stories we can let learners travel to worlds beyond possible imagination.
Which begs the question: “Aren’t stories also a form of games that our learners can dwell in?”
Learning game designers always fall into a pit when they are contemplating on creating a game: should we start with a story or mechanics? Should we build mechanics & fashion a story around it or should we narrate a story & then stuff the mechanics within?
Why can’t we think of stories as an overarching mechanic that encompasses a plethora of mechanics & elements within, making our game run soundly.
In game development, utilizing your story as a mechanic aids much in creating the experience of your game moving you in 3 dimensions as the story already teaches the rules, plays out the dynamics and pinpoints the learning objectives.
In our playshop “The Oracle” we will collectively narrate a story and by that story our game & learning will take place. Engaging in the untold tale of the god Hermes in answering his pressing questions & his quest with the imminent “fates”.
A game of choices, social collaboration & storytelling.
