Once popularly said,” Videos games are stories that are controlled by joystick and strategy.” So, one of the significant elements of games is the story that runs behind. Let’s look at the steps to write a classic video game story.
1. Decide on the purpose.
The purpose is the initial trigger to write a story. To define the word’s meaning, it is the motive behind everything. FOr example, if the motive of the game is to have a short fun experience for the player. Here it is. One needs to work on small elements that bring fun components to the small game. Let the purpose define if the match is adventures, puzzles, or short plays.

An overview stands important as this will be the first look at the level. If any fault is seen in the outline, it can be changed without intervention in the other elements. But if one decides to skip this step and write the story directly, one change may intervene in the complete story.
In the outline, one needs to focus on writing the dynamics of the character, the emotions, and his goals. Create a smaller story around the surface. If there are more than one character, then do the same for all. Also, define the outline of each mission or the essential elements.
