Spoken by a trained anthropologist who specialises in identity development, My Experience Of You Is Primarily Authored By Me: Semiotic NPC Design outlines how narrative designers and game developers can utilise the linguistic philosophical field of semiotics - that is, how meaning is communicated through symbolism - in order to directly translate how humans perceive others as unique individuals into programmatic representation.
