From Story to System using Colour Coded Grammar

The young people from Kirkby Sports College had already made their films with Washington buckley, so we were faced with the challenge of transforming their linear narratives into playable nonlinear systems.

First we asked the young people to reconstruct the narratives to their films, using Knex and colour coded grammar.

We then asked them to explode this chain of words, and reconnect it as a system. Using ecosystems that the group had learned about in Science as an inspiration, they created system diagrams that depicted how the different things in the game would interact with one another.

This became the basis for their game designs.
