MediaXchange Infinite Storytelling
“The thing about a video game is that you actually role-play the main character, so it’s very powerful when emotional events – good and bad – happen to that character. It has the potential to be a much stronger connection that you’d feel to a character in books or films.”

Become a game-changer
Learn to tell Stories differently
Where books, movies and TV shows tell stories from main character’s perspective, modern games and interactive experiences tell stories from our own vantage point. We make choices and control the pacing of the gameplay-experience and the movements and actions of the characters, effectively becoming a co-author of the story.
Explore how interactivity allows stories to be told from your perspective, rather than that of the main character. Examine how tv, novels and film are beginning to incorporate new and innovative approaches to traditional storytelling.
Successes Around the world today
Battlefield, Mirror’s Edge
DICE is behind the “Battlefield” series of games and is currently working on a sequel to “Mirror’s Edge,” the futuristic parkour game that it released in 2008.
Another key game that the company is working on is “Star Wars Battlefront”. EA predicts that it will sell between 9 and 10 million copies of the game.
CD Projekt RED’s game has been heavily praised by reviewers, reaching a Metacritic score of 92 out of 100 for its extensive depth, as well as the fact that it offers a single, expansive experience, in contrast to the trend in video games of releasing extra sections as downloadable content after release.
The company is focused on developing the Witcher franchise, which is based on a series of Polish fantasy novels.
Grand Theft Auto, Red Dead Redemption, Max Payne
Rockstar North is the Edinburgh office of Rockstar Games, the global video game development company responsible for creating the blockbuster “Grand Theft Auto” series of games.
The UK office is famous for creating the “Grand Theft Auto” and “Lemmings” franchises, as well as working on other games such as “Red Dead Redemption” and the “Max Payne” series.
Our Components for Narrative Storytelling
“Some of the best-received games of the past few years are loved because of their plots. These games place such an emphasis on story that they’re more like interactive fiction than traditional video games. Only 20% of players complete games — that’s very low. But the completion rate of narrative games is 60–70% — three times higher.”
Caroline Marchal — Lead Game Designer, Heavy Rain and Beyond – Two Souls
