Quest 11: Navigating Your Narrative Copy
Navigating Your Narrative
You are nearing the end of your mission, but before you can flesh out your game you need to target your player types with an appealing narrative. You may remember that the following narrative has been embedded throughout The Inspiration Game as a model:
You are an educational game maker in-training (<–identity) who must complete challenges as you learn to create games (<–obstacles) that will save the world (<–goal).
You’ve also learned that narratives can give you choices that determine the outcome of the story. Now you can inspire an inquiry mindset in your learners with a choice-filled narrative of your own.
