Our product articy:draft is tailored to the specific demands of non-linear storytelling. Finally, story and dialog design for games becomes blindingly easy. With its graphical flow visualization, articy:draft lets you compose interactive stories with great freedom of action for its players and at the same time keep track over dramaturgy and player experience. You can work online with other designers, writers and artists and benefit largely from the integrated asset management and workflow functionalities. articy:draft is the breakthrough tool for story-driven game projects, drastically increasing productivity and joy of use throughout the entire production.

Who would benefit most from using your product with Perforce? Developers, product managers, administrators?

Basically anyone who uses articy:draft as it allows to track the changes of the other users. With its integrated multi-user features, articy:draft serves as a comfortable foundation for creative collaboration, increasing productivity, fun and – most of all – storytelling quality. articy:draft can be used as the “central design hub”. You can import your concept art, videos or other documents, categorize and manage them and then just drag & drop them onto the fragments or elements of your story. Especially the extensive cross referencing within the tool lets articy:draft stand out from any other available tool for game designers. And thanks to our client-server-approach and Perforce integration, our software allows all designers in a team to work closely together and track the changes of other people. Now game writers can work on their projects from all around the world, even at Starbucks.
