The ThreeSpeech Interview now ends with the third and last part of this series!


ThreeSpeech: So how does a narrative story work within an open environment?

That’s a dangerous thing to ask me – have you got an hour? I was at GDC earlier this year and did a presentation on this exact subject and I struggled to keep that under an hour and worked months to get to that!

The short version is, we have taken an approach that we call dynamically assembled narrative. The concept behind that is, this is still a first-person shooter, this isn’t Mass Effect, we’re not building a giant conversation engine - the player’s principle interaction with the game world is through pulling the trigger. So what that meant was, we needed to develop systems to track the actions of the player both at the low level, in terms of what we’re shooting at, and the mid-level - what kind of objectives am I doing? Where am I going? Am I sabotaging something? Am I assassinating somebody?...
