Comic book storyboarding

Yesterday we started really fleshing out the story that our cross media game will revolve around. Because the game is story driven it was about time we started actually writing the story. It was really fun to get to do some writing and we ended up with a synopsis.

Ultimately we will use movie clips to progress the story and as rewards for players who progress in the game. This morning we got the idea that we should illustrate the movie in the style of a comic book so that we could have the usability tester see the “movie clip” as a part of the paper prototype we will develop later. We also thought that it would be cool to let the film clips exist in comic book-form too while using QR-codes as a link to the mobile application that is required to start the game but is yet to be decided.
