Watch This Session

TV and cinema offer the audience a chance to experience many emotions as they explore the life of the protagonist. Games have been criticised for offering only one emotional journey for the player – that of winning.

If so, how can write stories to convey a more complex experience and move beyond ‘click here to turn left’?
