    Storytellers Were Here

    Storytellers Were Here

    Bit of a history trip on this one. As we started the Pathfinder process of looking into the why and how stories are told, we found that graffiti has always been a symbol of the people. It's the untouched version of history. We've just scratched the surface of this artform but we hope this episode inspires you to see your next city wall in a different way.

    The Absence Of Sense

    The Absence Of Sense

    This is part two of our series on Wonderland and Lewis Carroll. Getting our own heads around this topic was a rather wacky thought process. We hope it makes 'sense' to you, and that you can take something away to give you audiences something new to think about.

    We're All Mad Here

    We're All Mad Here

    Ollie here,

    I've had a bit of an obsession with Lewis Carroll recently, specifically around his thoughts on logic and narrative construction. We thought we'd turn it into a Pathfinder story. This story actually spans two episodes so make sure you come back next week to learn how to integrate some of this logic into your own world-building.

    In this episode:

    A bit of history about the man known as Lewis Carroll

    We breakdown opposites and distractions and how to use them in your stories

    We attempt to make sense of nonsense.

    It's All In Your Head

    It's All In Your Head

    Daley Johnson joins us on this episode of Pathfinder to talk us through becoming part of the video game community. We turn the clocks back to look at her inspiration and experience working for companies like Rare and Playtonic. Daley also unpacks the art of game design, there's probably more to it than you think.

    A big thank you to Daley for joining us on this episode you can follow her on Twitter at https://twitter.com/daley_kong.

    The Hitchhiker's Guide To Nostalgia

    The Hitchhiker's Guide To Nostalgia

    We wanted to try something different this week. A few of you have been asking for a how-to on telling stories, so here it is. We thought we'd take everything we had learned from the last few episodes surrounding the power of nostalgia and break down how you can employ it in your own stories.

    From emotion, through atmosphere, and even a bit of pathfinding (yes we get the irony), we really went deep into what creates a brief moment of comfort and escape for audiences interfacing with their favourite characters and places.

    The Building Blocks Of Imagination

    The Building Blocks Of Imagination

    This week on Pathfinder it's part two of our series unpacking what defines our perception of nostalgia. What better way to understand how our connection with stories starts than turning back the clock to look at children's stories.

    We look at why stories might not be seen in the same light you remember them, why sometimes analyzing things a bit too closely isn't the right thing to do, and understanding how storytelling for children is a far different thing than writing for adults.
