Inua's narrative: how did we make our original story into a game

2022.01.24 08:22 ARTE_Interactif Inua's narrative: how did we make our original story into a game

Inua's narrative: how did we make our original story into a game Igal here, co-producer on Inua's: a story in ice and time. The game is available on Steam for pre-purchase.
A story and a narrative are not the same thing, and I wanted to tell you about.
how we made Inua’s original story into a video game narrative, because that is the biggest challenge we've had to overcome. You can find out more about the game here: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1479890/Inua__A_Story_in_Ice_and_Time/
This story was born at the end of the 90s, in the minds of two brilliant and prolific authors, Frédéric Bouvier and Natalie Frassoni, coming from films. Over the years, this story has continued to evolve, to gain in depth.
When they presented it to us in 2015, it blew our minds. It was singular, free, and functioned on multiple levels: Three characters (and a bear) lost in the great Canadian north, across three eras, interconnected by a dense lore and inspired by authentic historical events (The Franklin Expedition) and Inuit spirituality.

There was Frank Herbert, Apocalypse Now, Dan Simmons, a coming-of-age story, journalistic investigation, and a deep metaphysical, mythological significance.
It was originally intended to be made into a movie script, but we knew we'd never get the millions needed to bring it to the big screen. And because it was such a dense material, we thought maybe there were ways to make it into a game.

We were faced with a challenge that the designers of narrative games know very well: How can we blend narrative and gameplay? How can we give the player freedom while preserving our own freedom to craft an impactful and authentic narrative? We knew that such a dense story wouldn't easily fit into Excel tables.
So we called on several narrative designers and we tackled the most difficult task of the entire production: refining this story, patiently, for months, years, version after version to make it into the narrative for a video game.
Inevitably, we had to simplify. One of the most important decisions was to unify locations between eras.
Since the three main characters were linked by their respective fates, we decided to take them through the same locations so we could slip in more material elements that could travel through time.

This allowed the temporal aspect of the story to stand out better. It also helped us to better divide the narrative into chapters, breaking it down into clear levels, and to start defining the scale of production.
With these well-defined environments, we were able to open up spaces to give the player the freedom to explore and make some room for choices and gameplay. Of course, we also had to patiently reduce or modify many elements of the original story, sometimes making painful choices, but we tried to keep its unique identity intact as much as possible.
That's where the strength of this story lies: like all cautionary tales, it is a fable so rich in meaning that it could take many forms, a novel or a comic book, a role-playing game, or an animated film. Each version would be very different as the result of its own compromises, but the message conveyed would still be strong.
We are grateful to the whole team for being able to see this work through to the end. We hope that Inua's narrative blows your mind too.
🐻‍❄️Follow and wishlist the game, it helps so much.🧊⏳

2022.01.24 08:22 Money_maker93 Óbudai NR1 fittnessről vélemények?

Életem első 28 évében és 5 hónapjában nem vigyáztam az alakomra, így van jelenleg 10 kiló feleslegem. A súlyom így is normális szerintem, azzal nincs semmi bajom, viszont rosszul oszlik el a testemen (értsd nyomokban hasonlítok a csuti Napóleonra hastájt) ezért mostanra szántam rá magam egy kis alakformálásra.
A címben említett objektumról van valakinek tapasztalata, jár(t) oda edzeni? A személyi edzők értik ott a dolgukat?

2022.01.24 08:22 Burglar99 Actual Empires and Kingdoms

According to Google, the definition of an empire is: “An extensive group of states or countries ruled over by a single monarch, an oligarchy, or a sovereign state.”
However, many do not know the difference between a kingdom and an empire and so use it interchangeably.
This is why I suggest adding a feature to the game for founding actual empires.
... First suggestion is complicated, skip if needed.
First suggestion:
The game can detect the number and presence of islands on a map, although not reliably. Hence, how about a kingdom can found an empire after building 3 villages on at least 4 moderately-sized islands each, with the villages on each island having different cultures with at least a hundred people each (on the island).
Ex: Island one has the Boca Culture(200 people), and island two has the Kiki Culture (110 people), etc. Don’t forget those cultures must have 100 people or more ON the island.
Second suggestion: same as 1st but with 2 large-sized islands with 400 people each.
Third suggestion: an empire is founded when a kingdom has at least 5 villages and is the only one of that race.
Fourth suggestion: When a kingdom completely occupies a large island with at least 1000 people and two different cultures.
And now for Kingdoms:
Once a kingdom has 3 villages, then it should be called a kingdom.
...
After all that is said and done, the game should refer to the kingdom as an empire and the king as an emperor.
