I worked on BANISHERS as a member of the Narrative Design Team for a year. I collaborated closely with Elise Galmard (Lead Narrative Designer), Stéphane Beauverger (Narrative Director) and Devin Doyle (Lead Writer). My main focuses during the production were:

  • Quest Design And Dialogues

    • I was asigned precise scenes of the game (Main Quest & Side Quests)
    • Writing the level’s playthrough in Confluence.
    • Writing the first versions of all my scenes dialogues (Dynamic & Interactive Branching)
    • Iterating and implementing early versions with the level designers.
    • Integrating the dialogues inside the in-house dialogue tool of Don’t Nod.
    • Iterating with the designers to enhance the dialogues and gameplay situations as much as possible.
  • Recordings

    • Assisting the voice studio during all recordings.
    • Making sure all context is given to the actors to deliver the best voice lines possibles.
    • Preparing recording documents and making sure all lines were recorded.
  • Narrative Coherence

    • Be vigilant on all aspects of the game for anything that could create plot holes or give false narrative information to the player.
    • Playing the game a lot and using the player’s perspective to understand how the story is perceived.
  • Barks

    • Defining with the game design team when and how NPC’s emit ‘barks’ (short random sentences used for feedback and immersion).
    • Creating with the writer the content of the barks.
