Video: 7 Traps to Avoid when Writing Videogames

by Guillermo Crespi on 08/18/16 04:39:00 am

The following blog post, unless otherwise noted, was written by a member of Gamasutra’s community.
The thoughts and opinions expressed are those of the writer and not Gamasutra or its parent company.


I'm a video game writer from Buenos Aires, Argentina, currently working at a game dev studio called HeavyBoat (Regular Show: Grudgeball, Winter Fugitives, etc.)

In 2015 I had the honor to be selected to present a talk at the Argentine Video Game Expo (EVA), probably the most important event on videogame development held in my country. The talk was about how to avoid the most common "traps" you can fall into when writing a video game, and was directed at general audiences with or without experience on the matter.

You can check it out down here with English subtitles (please turn on CC if you don't see them right away). I really hope you enjoy it, and feel free to comment!
