Abstract [en]

This study aims to explore and gain new insight into how one could tell a game-character's story through Environmental Storytelling. By doing this we hope to make game characters feel more real and alive, while at the same time furthering the game’s narrative. Before delving into the creation and examining of our game, we establish that it’s really important let the players come to their own conclusion regarding perceived story, even if they are inaccurate. After having created a game in an attempt to answer our question at issue we let other people play the game. We believe this is important as we, the creators of the game, already know everything there is to know about the character in question. The research uses Actor Network Theory as its methodology, as we believe it can help us understand relationships to why something works or doesn’t work. This research concludes that it’s all the small details that adds up, enriching a character's story.

Abstract [sv]

Den här undersökningen syftar på att utforska och finna nya insikter kring hur man kan berätta en spelkaraktärs story genom Environmental Storytelling. Med detta hoppas vi kunna göra så att spelkaraktärer känns mer levande och äkta, och samtidigt främja spelets narrativ. Innan vi gräver ner oss i skapandet och undersökandet av spelet i vår undersökning, fastställer vi att det är väldigt viktigt att låta spelarna dra sina egna slutsatser kring hur de uppfattar storyn, även ifall de är felaktiga. Efter vi skapade spelet för att försöka besvara vår frågeställning, bjöd vi in folk till att testa vår spel. Vi tror att det är viktigt med andras feedback och erfarenheter då vi som spelskapare redan ränner till allt om karaktärens story. Den här undersökningen använder sig av “Actor Network Theory” som metodologi, vi tror att det kan hjälpa oss se samband och relationer kring varför saker funkar eller inte. Undersökningen drar slutsatsen att det är alla små detaljer som berikar karaktärens story.
