Video games are emerging as a incredible interactive medium for storytelling. As in literature, all of the key components of a good story are present, however, unlike other media, video games invite the player to actively participate in the story world. In this session, Lucas will share his latest game-based project that encourages middle school students to explore the rich storytelling in video games on a variety of platforms including the XBox, PlayStation3, PC, iPad, and even handheld gaming systems.
