Narrative design combines game design and game writing. It uses the
mechanics of game design to create a dramatically compelling story to
the game player. In a broader sense, narrative design is a unity of
carefully selected game mechanics that would adhere the story elements
in either textual or symbolic/visual form with the aim to fulfil the
desired gaming experience for the players. Narrative design can be
textual, visual, or aural. It is usually a tight bond of all these
mediums telling the story directly through players’ senses in a form of
gaming experience that was set by the game designer.
