WHAT ARE NARRATTIVA GAMES?
They are books. Yes, games are not just boxed, or a CD, but also books and this is their shape, but we assure you that they are totally games! To be more specific they are Roleplay games.
WHAT ARE ROLEPLAY GAMES?
If your answer is “Word of Warcraft” or “I don’t know” keep reading, otherwise you can move on to our games description.
In reality everyone knows what are roleplay games because all of us played it at last when we were children. These games create stories of different genres collaboratively, through the active participation of every player in one of the characters, moderated by rules and by a starting scenario. They are commonly called Role Playing Games (RPG), and were initially made and sold only in the format of a book. And in fact we can say that they have always existed because it’s part of being human to tell stories and perform scenes of real life or fantasy.
In 1974 Dungeons & Dragons was the first game that has led RPGs to the commercial success, but it has embalmed the scheme; in fact in the years following the new games’ typical structure was always modeled on that of D&D: basically fantasy setting, complex rules system and very large, thick volumes and long gaming sessions with a Game Master who acted as sole screenwriter and creator of history and characters whom the players play.
This structure is the same one used years later by videogames, creating the first so-called role-playing computer games and then displacing their paper progenitor.
Perhaps this has created the impetus in the early 2000s for a new generation of really innovative game designers who created the first role playing games really various and based on different and new game patterns. Narrattiva was the first Italian publisher to recognize and enhance this new creative wave, and to translate many of these games in Italian!
