“A typical script for a two-hour feature film contains an average of 1,000 lines of dialogue. By comparison, an immersive video game can have more than 60,000 lines of dialogue to align with other disciplines such as design, film, animation, production and sound, ”said Mark Kennedy, co-founder and CEO of Celtx. “Celtx Save ensures that all teams and departments can easily collaborate on a large scale.”
Developed in collaboration with key video game industry partners, Celtx Save offers new features as well as enhancements to existing features to give video game developers greater control over narrative design. Product highlights include:
– A scalable platform with custom hierarchies keeps narrative structures organized for editing and identification.
– Quick prototype tools create a highly descriptive, interactive history map for visualizing narrative structures.
– Script-style editor provides a familiar writing environment that reflects the growing number of professional film and television writers entering the industry.
– Automated data modeling ensures that all narrative content can be easily exported and integrated into the game production pipeline.
– The logic is linked to the narrative design via custom conditions and variables, and makes it possible to export projects in open file formats that are common in video game production.
– Collaboration tools connect teams in a cloud-based studio and ensure more creativity.
“We believe Celtx and its collaborative tools are an important part of our writing process and a strong partner for our development needs,” said Zac Litton, CTO of Telltale, a leading study and publisher of storytelling games.
Celtx Gem has the technical capabilities to accelerate narrative design with capabilities previously reserved for in-house built narrative development platforms. Today, video games offer a more immersive experience and more freedom of action for players. Video game developers now have a method to handle the vast amount of narrative design and content involved in long video game development projects.
“Today, the development of AAA narrative-driven games offers compelling storytelling that competes with traditional entertainment media such as movies and television,” Kennedy said. “With Celtx Gem we combined Celtx’s robust story development and media production tools with narrative design tools into a single solution to enhance creative collaboration and help studios shorten their production workflows. ”
