017: The Hitchhiker's Guide To Nostalgia

What exactly is nostalgia and how do you harness it for your own storytelling? This week on Pathfinder, we break down how to build this container of emotions by taking you on a journey through the different acts of nostalgia.

We wanted to try something different this week. A few of you have been asking for a how-to on telling stories, so here it is. We thought we'd take everything we had learned from the last few episodes surrounding the power of nostalgia and break down how you can employ it in your own stories.

From emotion, through atmosphere, and even a bit of pathfinding (yes we get the irony), we really went deep into what creates a brief moment of comfort and escape for audiences interfacing with their favourite characters and places.
