The lecture and workshop will be devoted to the use of Do, don’t show rule in game design. Whereas the rule of Show, don’t tell finds broad application in creative writing, its extension, Do, don’t show –or “let the gamer ‘do’ the story you want to tell by doing things in the game” – proves particularly useful in the context of video games. During the workshop, students will have a chance to find out how to use the rule while designing different types of games and how to create the first game prototype very quickly thanks to its application.
