In the world of FTP games, live operations, and specifically live events, are key to a product's ongoing success. In recent years in the casual puzzle market, we've seen a series of successful games leverage narrative in their meta layers. But how do you weave that narrative into a live event? In this talk, King's lead for narrative design in Stockholm will walk you through six structural components of an event, and how narrative, through use of story and character, can best be woven into an event's design to create emotional engagement and strengthen completion, retention, and gross bookings.
Audience members will leave with a toolkit that will empower them to create engaging live operations events through narrative, along with tips on inspiring teams to enthusiastically embrace narrative in their process.
Anyone working in FTP live events with an interest in how to leverage IP and story to enhance and ensure event appeal and success.
