Does anybody out there know what type of format is used in writing the stories for a Survival Horror game? Is it written in movie script format, or a different format? Master Conjurer

Ooh good question, never thought of that.

I''d guess they have their game specification documents which indicate where characters are talking and reference to an external script (probably in play/movie screenplay format).

That''s bound to be a decent way of doing it anyway. Especially since you''ll want to be getting talented scriptwriters to do the writing job - to avoid the hideous writing in games like House of the Dead 2.

Why do you ask?
