Schedule

Friday, June 14

We intend to offer three workshops:

  • Creating games with Twine
  • Creating games with Inform 7
  • Interactive fiction in education

These will be free for NarraScope attendees, but seating for each will be limited. We will have a separate sign-up form for the workshops once conference registration is over. (The workshops are concurrent; you can only do one.)

If you’re arriving Friday evening but you’re not interested in the workshops, meet other attendees in the Stata Center lobby!

Expo Room

We have a room reserved for attendees to show off narrative games, either released or in progress. This will be a low-key demo area — it’s an MIT classroom, not a convention show floor. You will be able to reserve table space in two-hour blocks for Saturday and Sunday. Bring your own laptop. Demoing will be free for NarraScope attendees; we will have a separate sign-up form after conference registration is over.
