Every year, students at leading game design programs conduct a detailed analysis of the narrative elements of a game title of their choice as part of the Game Narrative Review Competition. The resulting papers are submitted to the GDC writing board for review, and the submitters with the most promising entries are then invited to create a digital poster as a visual synopsis of their review.
Successful digital poster submissions are declared winners and exhibited at the GDC.
This year’s winners have explored everything from big-budget blockbusters to smaller, critically acclaimed indie titles—presenting complex and detailed analyses that foreshadow the contributions they will likely make to the field of game narrative over the course of their careers.
