As inexperienced storytellers, they often fall back on rather mechanical exposition through cut scenes, much as early ﬁlmmakers were sometimes overly reliant on intertitles because they had not yet mastered the skills of visual storytelling. Yet, as in any other aesthetic tradition, game designers are apt to develop their craft through a process of experimentation and reﬁnement of basic narrative devices, becoming better at shaping narrative experiences without unduly constraining the space for improvisation within their games.
Players anxiously anticipate the type of tile to appear next and must reorient each piece in both the gamespace and their own minds as they search for the best alignment. Once a row is complete, traditional versions of the game move the stacks of tiles downward by a distance equal to the height of the cleared rows below them; a tessellation or tiling of the plane is rewarded with the return of a negative space of equal dimension. Thus players claim space only to gain its simultaneous erasure. Sequencing the never-ending supply of interlocking tiles in such a way as to leave no cell empty forces players into a maddening paradox: while the game supports a spatial logic based on positive construction, what remains on-screen is that which players have failed to complete.
Not surprisingly, most existing embedded narratives take the form of detective or conspiracy stories since these genres help to motivate the player’s active examination of clues and exploration of spaces and provide a rationale for his efforts to reconstruct the narrative of past events. Emergent Narratives The Sims (2000) represents yet another model of how narrative possibilities can be mapped onto gamespace. Emergent narratives are not merely prestructured or preprogrammed stories that take shape through the gameplay, yet they are not as unstructured, chaotic and frustrating as life itself.
