Objectives in RichCast

A great story is underpinned with clear and exciting objectives.

Be Clear

  • Make sure your player understands their objective and aims.

  • Don’t drop a player into a situation without any guidance.

  • If necessary, offer hints on what the player should be doing. A great way of doing this is using the ‘Unrecognised‘ or ‘No Response’ function in the Choice tile. If the player says something that is not recognised, offer a clue and nudge them in the right direction. Similarly, if they don’t respond in a certain amount of time, provide a subtle piece of information to help them.

Good Examples of Clear Objectives

  • Find clues to solve the murder.

  • Interview a character to obtain information.

  • Choose your outfit.

  • ‘Quiz‘ or ‘Game Show’ formats.

  • Locate an object to progress.

Things To Avoid

  • Presenting the player with too many locations to explore.

  • Introducing multiple characters at once.

  • Giving the player too many choices.

  • Lengthy speech and back stories.

  • Making objectives too complicated. 

  • Over complexity. Your title might be extremely impressive to look at in the RichCast Editor, but does this benefit the player?
