Join Harrison Ferrone for an in-depth discussion in this video Foster engagement, part of Unity 5: Build a Character Dialogue System.
- [Instructor] To really understand…what makes good games great,…we need to ask ourselves a few important questions.…What were some of the more concrete ways that those…favorite games fostered and kept your engagement?…Was is the mechanics, the graphics,…the huge online community…or even the new console you were playing it on?…No doubt, it was a combination of these things…and many other less tangible ones…that really cement a game into our memories,…but it's really the intangibles that bring a game to life,…and draw hundreds, thousands…and sometimes even millions of players…into game worlds for long term stays.…
Some things to think about when…creating characters and narratives.…Does this character or interaction serve a specific purpose,…or is it, she or he just filler?…Have I created an interaction that can be built on later?…Have I consider how a character I've brought…into the narrative will engage with my players?…Will the characters I create be able…to engage different audiences?…If not, will that exclusion disrupt potential engagement?…
