Deconstructing Storytelling for Serious Games: How To Engage, Yet Keep It Real?

7 March 2024

The use of serious games is becoming increasingly popular in various healthcare domains. Serious games can potentially serve as powerful tools in healthcare because they are motivating and can present realistic simulations of real-life situations. Players can learn from their mistakes in a safe environment without having to experience any negative consequences from their actions. However, many educators are excited about the use of gaming technologies but do not know where to start in terms of developing a good story. So, what makes a good game story? How can you create serious games with a good storyline?

This course aims to provide participants with an understanding of the basic elements of a good game storyline and how to make a simple "play-your-own-adventure" game story.

At the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the elements of a good story
