Summary

Do you want to turn your talent for writing into a narrative design career in the games industry?
 
It’s never been a better time to be a writer for video games. You’re tapping into an industry that was worth more than $120 billion dollars in 2019, and it’s still growing. 
 
And it’s an industry that needs great storytellers. 
 
But there's a BIG difference between a great story and a great game story. Traditional stories are told. Game stories are experienced. That's why video game narratives need a totally different design approach. 
 
So how do you apply your scriptwriting, storylining, poetic, copywriting, prose producing skills to an audience that won’t sit still and an industry that’s ever changing?
 
That’s what this book is about!
 
I’ve been a narrative designer for over a decade, as well as a novelist and a scriptwriter / storyliner for TV and comics. I love playing games, and even more, I love helping game developers realize their storytelling aspirations. Nothing delights me more than a game that's both fun to play and delivers a satisfying story experience.
 
In this book, I'll share both the evergreen principles and practical techniques that I’ve learned and developed during my narrative design career so that you can position yourself for your first game writing gig. And if you’re an experienced narrative designer already, you’ll still find plenty of new tricks and insights that you can apply to your trade.
 
I’ll say it again, “the games industry needs you!”
 
Play is what we do, but story is why we do it.

    “I just read The Nasty Man. Damn! I can’t believe my eyes. This technique is crazy! The girl literally surrendered to you. I can’t wait to try them.” – Jack
     
    Do you know there are men who don’t know how to keep a relationship fun for years? There are men whose girlfriends fall out of love because they were not able to keep the momentum and craziness going.
     
    This book is a crazy book and it’s about being the naughtiest man in the world and using these naughty, dramatic, crazy, stubborn, etc. techniques to get a woman forever addicted in the relationship and make it last longer. In fact, forever.
     
    Do you know a lady (even if she’s a 15-year-old virgin) is naughtier than all the men in this world combined? Let me tell you, nothing is naughty in the eyes of a woman.
     
    She already knows, but she’ll pretend she doesn’t to avoid you seeing her as a loose girl. Women love to protect their naughty image until the man sneaks into the naughty side by acting naughtier than them.
     
    In real life, a man can never be naughtier than a woman. All he needs to do is to act and pretend to be naughtier than her and she’ll start opening up her naughty and nasty side.
     
    She needs to be comfortable with you before she can open up. To achieve this, if you don’t already know yet, read book 4. It’s about keeping a fun conversation and never lacking what to say.
     
    This Book, The Nasty Man, Will Teach You the Following:
     
    How to get a woman addicted via misunderstandingHow to get a woman madly in love via tease and withdrawalHow to sneak into her panties and get her in the mood via textHow to get her to yearn for you every single time even if you’re quarreling with her, etc.All these and many more will make the relationship fun, crazy, etc. and it will last longer even if it’s a long distance relationship.
     
    If you follow the raw instructions in this book, your woman will be addicted in having you in her life. This book is your lifesaver in keeping a relationship intriguing, sexually fun, and enthralling.
     
    Also, if you’re in a long distance relationship, this is a perfect book for you to keep her in love and always yearning to have you by all means. It’s addictive when you apply the contents shared here in a conversation. Be warned!
     
    Everything here is raw and nasty, so let’s get started since you’re old enough to see naughty things. Oh! You’ll see some quarrel and harsh comments made by some nice guys when the content was posted online.
     
    Warning: This book will sound dumb to nice guys because everything about relationship advice for men sounds dumb to them.
     
    They are men who pretend to be responsible, so this book won’t make sense to a nice guy. In fact, starting from chapter 1, it will appear childish, but it works like magic.
     
    Let me ask you a question. Would you prefer a relationship advice that looks childish but works or one that looks mature but doesn’t work?
     
    Let me make it clear before you purchase this book, what is inside this will reveal naughty things about women and how to handle them—guaranteed!
