Interpretation Design Tool
Interpretation Design Tool is a narrative design tool with an aim to create interpretative agency for players in narrative-driven games. The tool serves multiple purposes, as it a design-thinking tool, which can be filled solo or with fellow team members. After the the tool is filled, its other purpose is to serve as a documentation and thus, a communication tool, for other team members. The tool is at its best when it is printed as big possible and placed in a visible place in the office.
This tool was the result of my master’s thesis work in Aalto University Game Design and Production masters in 2022. The tool was informed from interviews with narrative design professionals and the recent finding in the Human-Computer Interaction research. Interested about the the topic?
