Game writing tools and techniques

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, my first post because I’m curious about the tools that other game developers and writers use to make their stories.

I currently work as a writer in an Australian game studio. I have a background in writing and developing stories for Films and TV but I’ve found the switch to game writing to be challenging and increasingly time consuming. We have been experimenting with different techniques for writing outside the writer’s room pen and paper stuff, particularly different ways of visualising or modelling stories, potential character arcs etc. I was wondering if anyone has used any software or tools they recommend?

There are various programs like this: https://www.nevigo.com/en/ that connect writing with other parts of game design more closely than a word processor. It depends on your workflow if they are effective or not. (they haven't worked for me, yet)
