Complexity in game design and in interactive storytelling

In an invited talk at Instituto Superior Técnico in Lisbon the “legendary game designer and developer” Warren Spector spoke of game design and game project methodology. In the concept phase he usually draws maps to represent game structure. These drawings, he says, are great to show his ideas to the rest of the developer team.  Game structure as interactive storytelling structure can be very complex. Ideas often must be grabbed in paper and discussed with other before materializing in the screen with characters and actions.

O MUNDO À NOSSA VOLTA » Os Filhos de Lumière


(“The world around us”)

“If theory is rapidly forgotten, gestures and the artistic experience rest in the body, in the memory, in the look”


Is a great example of how artistic expression and storytelling greatly supports learning activities with young students. With the support of Fundação Caloust Gulbenkian “Os filhos de Lumière” developed in several schools activities with students that ultimately resulted in short movies where kids create their stories, direct and produce their own movies.

Korsakow in the Classroom

More and more teachers are using Korsakow in their classes. From early adopters in 2009 like Scott Wilson in California to Adrian Miles in Australia there are many projects all over like Jennifer Proctor’s in the University of Michigan-Dearborn. I am realy happy to see that more and more people are exploring this application’s characteristics for inovating and improoving their student’s learning experiences.
