In this 2017 GDC talk, Square Enix's Dan Inoue discusses what rules were made and broken to maintain a cohesive, coherent narrative in Final Fantasy XV

Inoue shared some interesting insights into what it's like to try and keep the narrative of a modern, big-budget game cohesive and compelling while simultaneously expanding it to encompass promotional efforts, pre-release companion stories, and more.

It was a fascinating look at the narrative complexities of modern games with transmedia companion projects, and now you can watch Inoue's for free via the official GDC YouTube channel!

About the GDC Vault
