INTERACTIVE NARRATIVE CONSULTING
FOR GAMES AND VR
WHAT I DO
Have a cool new mechanic, but need fiction to wrap around it?
Let's create a universe and a compelling story hook to get your game
or VR experience
to the next level.
You have a concept locked in, now you need to build out your IP.
We'll create rules and logic for your world, fill it with history and NPCs until it feels like a living, breathing place.
Want an interactive story that gives your players agency and choice?
I have years of experience in the arcane art of building complex branching narratives that don't blow your budget.
Your VO deadline is fast approaching and your characters still sound like cartoons? A quick dialogue touch up can add some organic idiosyncrasies to make them feel human.

Let's Talk STORY
9 out of 10 video games are never completed by players.
Once the mechanic is mastered, there is little incentive to keep going. But games with a high completion rate tend to have one thing in common:
You want to know what happens next.
Story is what hooks us. Story is what guides us to the end.
