IGF-nominated narrative designer Xalavier Nelson Jr. creates a morally-complex world with human emotion at the core of every scenario, where the individuals outside your squad matter as much as the rangers you deploy on each map.

We discuss:

  • How too much narrative can be detrimental to the game
  • Pre-production is one of the most important part of development
  • Make time for your health: spending time with loves one, exercise, eating right
  • Spend less time making your games so you can start early on building your foundation
