Our very own Special Interest Group within the IGDA. There are many useful references linked from this page as well.

The Grand List of Overused Science Fiction Cliches
Quite a few game writers would improve their craft if they spent a few minutes here.

Some useful books on the subject (that I have actually read):

  • "Character Development and Storytelling for Games", Lee Sheldon, Course Technology PTR, 2004
  • "Game Writing: Narrative Skills for Videogames", Chris Bateman, ed., Charles River Media, 2007
  • "creating emotion in games", David Freeman, New Riders Publishing, 2004
