Storyteller is a puzzle game about building stories. But it turns out people have a lot of expectations about how stories are supposed to work, so how do you design a game that accomodates a soft skill that is shaped differently across cultures, game literacy and even age? This talk is a distillation of everything we learned in the 15 years it took to reach a satisfying design for a game that allows people to play with stories instead of passively consuming them.


Shedding light of what implies to design an idea that has never been tried before and what the challenges are to design *truly* interactive stories.

Intended Audience

Anyone interested in original game design.
