RESEARCH AND WORLD BUILDING
Now that games are expanding on an ever-growing set of platforms, authentic content and narratives are more important than ever. History Studio helps game developers bring virtual worlds to life through deep research and expert consultation. History Studio answers research questions, but also provides a holistic sense of time, place, people, and events. Our experts generate ideas for story threads, characters, scenes, and sensory experience. We work with our clients to create an authentic, seamless universe with comprehensive character and location histories that guide the game narrative.
CULTURAL SENSITIVITY REVIEW
History Studio is committed to bringing its multi-racial, international perspective to every review. Cultural sensitivity reviews are always conducted by a team of experts, headed by a History Studio partner. We vet for representations of race, ethnicity, class, gender, sexual identity, disability, and other areas of concern to our clients. We also consider the cultural contexts that shape how the game might be received in various markets. We ensure that characters, settings, and narratives resonate with the broadest audience possible—an important consideration in an industry that is constantly creating new gamers of all backgrounds and ages.
