    Do you ever do writing for your game when you are tired? I.e. Dialogue. Would you recommend it?

    I was just curious if anyone here is like me and sometimes writes dialogue or other writin for there games when they are tired. Long ago I was against it as I always thought I can't write the best I can do when I'm tired, but now my attitude is it's fine to write so long you go back to it later...

    Letting the player control the pace of the narrative...

    Hi all, While I was working on the script for my upcoming game (unapologetic plug; link in my signature), I came across an interesting problem which I think would make for good discussion: Is there any way to let the player move the narrative forward on their own terms while also making sure...

    Writing Tools for Game Design and Development?

    Can anyone recommend some good (and maybe free and open source) tools for writing video game scenes and dialogue? I've been looking for some tools to help write the story of my game.

    Say you're a fenomenal picksel artist but you can’t even spell it correctly. Did you ever wish there was an RTP for writing?

However, since I tend to be short and...
