Through the NarraScope

A podcast sharing and discussing talks and panels from the NarraScope conference.


Episode 1: How Do?

Welcome to Through the NarraScope - Episode 1: "How do?"

In this episode, we introduce ourselves (Shae, David, Justin, and Dan) and discuss the IFComp. We highly encourage everyone to take a part in the IFComp this year (and every year!) through being a judge, playing at least five games, and submitting your votes.

We close the episode discussing what video games we have been playing including some commentary on "That Goose Game", Slay the Spire, Borderlands 2, Steins:Gate, YU-NO: A Girl Who Chants Love at the Bound of this World, and Neo Cab.

You can reach us through sending e-mail to narrascope@iftechfoundation.org with a subject line of "Podcast." Please share with us your thoughts on NarraScope 2019, what we might work towards including during our planning of NarraScope 2020, and if any games in The Legend of Zelda series are, in fact, roguelikes.

Episode 2: "Shaping Your Story with Emotional Intelligence" by Natalia Martinsson

Welcome to Through the NarraScope - Episode 2: "Shaping Your Story with Emotional Intelligence" by Natalia Martinsson

In this episode, we share a recording of the keynote from NarraScope 2019: "Shaping Your Story with Emotional Intelligence" by Natalia Martinsson. (Video recording here.)

Content warning: The keynote touches on the topics of sexual abuse, violence, self harm, and dealing with emotional trauma.

After the keynote, we discuss its connections to games that have resonated with us personally including Life is Strange, Gone Home, and The Vanishing of Ethan Carter. This leads us into sharing games that have affected us negatively, and how what games like American Election and Papers, Please! can persuade us in different ways.
