Story Forge is a workshop all about game writing. We understand that the narrative experience of a game is very different from that of other media, so we created a space where storytellers can meet and work together.
All interested are welcome, whether you’re a seasoned veteran, total beginner, or just a curious hobbyist. Your co-hosts and volunteers will help you workshop your current project. If you don’t have a project, feel free to sit in and contribute ideas to a different project. Your feedback is valued!
Story Forge meets quarterly at GlitchHQ. We recommend bringing something to write with and a visual aid to help guide discussion around your narrative. We hope to see you at our next meeting on May 29th from 6:00pm – 8:00pm!
During the day, Bobby works as a QA Analyst for a software development team in Downtown Minneapolis. His academic background is in Anthropology and Japanese Literature with a side of History, and his non-academic background includes a little bit of theater, community television production, and a short stint as a radio DJ. In his opinion the best games are those driven by their stories, such as the more recent Persona games, the Dark Souls franchise, and Portal.
