The challenge of the Storyweaver is to take the vision of the Valparaiso and its New Pirate Economy and use their skills to craft it into a video game. It will be a virtual experience to allow others to gain an understanding of the life of a new age pirate on an adventure delivering a fair trade marketplace. They may not be able to feel the wind in their hair or smell the sea breeze, but it will create something that allows them to feel a warmth from a visionary concept of connecting people around the globe and sharing in their own stories and individual craft.
Video games are fast becoming a well renowned method of storytelling. An engaging way to put yourself in the shoes of the main character and create your own experience of the challenges that they are faced with. In this way we are able to learn not only about ourselves and how we react in different circumstances, but also gain an understanding of another perspective.
The challenge is to craft the concept and vision of the New Pirate Economy into an interactive tale for all these landlubbers to share in!
Example (open to a different approach but with the same concept):
Aim: to sail around the world to trade creatively and sustainably
