Hi everyone,

I'm Syfro, and I have a tiny little YouTube channel where I study storytelling techniques and writing in games. With the Banner Saga 2 around the corner, I was reminded of how awesome the story of the original Banner Saga was. I made a video exploring how the Banner Saga tells its story, how it forges the world and hooks you in so well. If that sounds interesting to you, or you just want a bit of Banner Saga stuff before the sequel comes out, then please have a look :)

Thanks for your time! :)

Hi Syfro, and welcome. Thanks for your video; I will check it out later :)

EDIT -- Got to watch it today. Well done! Your voice blends smoothly with the visuals and, excellent background music ;) I got to re-admire Austin Wintory's soundtrack!

Cheers :)

Looking forward to seeing how Banner Saga 2 continues the story. Was super happy when I heard that events from the first game carry over :)
