I´m an artist, and a computer scientist specialized in narrative construction from a range of different media. Since my relation to science from when I studied Computer science is complicated, to say the least, due to an academic resistance to review the narrative beyond structures and templates, I share the posts from my site Narrative construction at Gamasutra with the hope to see the understanding of the narrative as a perceptual and cognitive process evolve.
What it means to have a cognitive approach to the narrative and how to approach a quality assurance from a narrative perspective beyond templates and strong structures in creation of engagement in digital and interactive contexts.
Since the story and the gameplay are often seen as two separate elements within the game industry, this text treats from constructor's perspective the narrative as a cognitive process in the creation of meaning behind the scenes of the story-based games.
The third and last part of "Don't show, involve" is about plotting and how the narrative can assist the stylish elements in the creation of a form that involves and evokes emotions.

Part 2 of the series "Don't show, involve", which concerns the narrative as a cognitive process, is about the hands-on plotting of Jenova Chen's "Journey" with the thought-based method "Narrative bridging".
The series "Don't show, involve" builds upon the narrative as a cognitive process and how to go from a thought to the plotting of an involving experience.

Have you ever wondered how surprises relate to our emotions beyond physical reactions and the horror genre? Would you like to know how a narrative constructor thinks in creation of curiosity, surprises and suspense?

Hi, I think it was very interesting to see our respective posts coming up at the same time as they depict two different approaches to the design process of going from a thought towards a vision. As a reply, I would like to invite you to visit my post just ...
