Description

Brian Allgeier is the longtime director of the Ratchet & Clank series and was part of the original team that created the franchise at Insomniac Games. He has worked in the games industry as an artist, designer, and director for over 26 years.

Brian led the design and creative direction on a wide range of titles from the light-hearted Ratchet & Clank games to the virtual reality horror adventure Edge of Nowhere. He is the author of the book, Directing Video Games: 101 Tips for Creative Leaders where he shares his directing experience and the universal principles followed by veteran creative directors.

As the Director of Experience at Insomniac Games, Brian focuses on how the science of user research and the art of creative collaboration can be applied to develop better games—like the highly anticipated Spider-Man for the Playstation 4.

What you'll get from this Masterclass:

A full day of hands-on learning all about the process of developing an overarching game design and story structure! Two sections of the masterclass will include first "Game Design" and then "Story". Brian will conclude by showing how these two can be harmoniously stitched together.

  • For Game Design, participants will have the chance to develop a list of mechanics and use them in a core game loop, while learning how to gate branching paths, how to design non-linear story telling elements and integrate progression systems.

  • In terms of Story, Brian will show the participants the anatomy of a strong plot and how to break it down into key emotional beats. As the story and design are developed, participants will discover how the two tracks can influence one another and how they could work in harmony to deliver a cohesive and compelling experience.

  • Participants will also get to view diagrams and charts of the story structure of Ratchet and Clank PS4 game.

  • VR storytelling will also be discussed with examples from Insomniac's Edge of Nowhere.
