Alexander Swords

Alexander Swords is a multidisciplinary interactive narrative specialist and narratology evangelist. He’s worked internationally across AAA and indie projects and prior to that created and nurtured narrative across the wider screen industry and arts. He’s the creator of the Forest Paths Method of Narrative Design – an accessible, collaborative approach to narrative design that empowers creators to engage their audiences and other stakeholders on their own terms. It is now being used in studios internationally and taught as part of narrative design and screenwriting courses in the USA and Canada, and has been vital to his work on games currently in development, Totem Teller and Anytown: Garage Sale Monsters.
