About Cutscene University

our story

Cutscene University was founded in 2020 with one goal in mind: to teach the fundamentals of narrative analysis by using over thirty years’ worth of vibrant, dynamic video game stories. Our site features general essays on the essentials of storytelling, using commonly-known video games as examples, and in-depth essays that analyze individual games in detail. This multi-pronged approach  allows readers to learn in the style of their choosing, whether it’s by starting with the basics, or diving in with their favorite games.
