Telling a story

Telling a Story

  • One of the most important components of a video game is an engaging story.

  • You need a fun and attention drawing plot in order to persuade the game company to take up your idea.

  • Game creators will include a storyboard typically showcasing their main characters or the setting.

Motion capturing video games

Motion Capturing Video Games

  • Motion Capturing came out in the mid 90’s and has been used countlessly in films. Recently, video game companies have began to use it to make their games more realistic.

  • The company will take actors/actresses and have them act out certain scenes of the game while wearing motion capturing suits.

  • Once the movement is captured, it is then taken back to the animation team to construct the rest of the design of the character.

  • Video games that have used motion capturing technology include: Beyond Two Souls, Batman: Arkham Origins, Tomb Raider, Resident Evil, and more! 3
