A Visual Timeline

A storyboard is a visual timeline of your narrative to use as a reference for your project.

Graphic novels/comics are great examples because they have:

  • Strong emphasis on visuals to help tell the story

  • Small snippets of dialogue to engage and inform due to similar limitations to game design

  • A simple flow of events done in panels


Storyboarding Tools

To make your own storyboard, include only key events to get a rough timeline. The game loops you have planned should help keep your storyboard focused.

Branching Stories

  • Miro (collaborative visualization)

  • Twine (test the flow as a player)
