A common mistake that game (and movie) designers make is ignoring basic storytelling elements. It bears repeating: What is the story of your game? If it's only a series of scenes, it's not a story, and it's unlikely that players will return to it again and again. Humans crave stories, it's how they become immersed. Basic story elements include... More... (http://www.animationmagazine.net/gaming/gdc-2018-tools-for-better-storytelling/)

# Â Win Ferdinand on Blu-ray! (#)

If you're a fan of colorful family comedy-adventures with enough heart to fill an arena, then bully for you! Because we've got two copies of Fox Animation and Blue Sky Studios' charged-with-charm, Oscar-nominated Munro Leaf adaptation Ferdinand to give away. Available now on digital and disc, the home release comes packed with fun special features.

Directed by Carlos Saldanha, the film centers on Ferdinand (voiced by John Cena): a giant bull with a big heart. After being mistaken for a dangerous beast and torn from his home, he rallies a misfit team of friends for the ultimate adventure to return to his family. The voice cast also features Kate McKinnon, Anthony Anderson, Bobby Cannavale, Peyton Manning, Gina Rodriguez, Miguel Angel Silvestre, David Tennant, Flula Borg, Jerrod Carmichael, Daveed Diggs, Gabriel Iglesias, Juanes, Boris Kodjoe, Karla Martinez, Jeremy Sisto and Sally Phillips.

The home video bonuses include a Gallery, "Home" music video, and featurettes "Ferdinand's Guide to Healthy Living" with John Cena, "A Goat's Guide to Life," "Ferdinand's Team Supreme," "Spain Through Ferdinand's Eyes," "Confessions of a Bull-loving Horse," "Creating the Land of Ferdinand," "Anatomy of a Scene: The Bull Run," "Learn to Dance with Ferdinand," "Ferdinand's Do-It-Yourself Flower Garden" and "Creating a Remarka-Bull Song."

Enter for your chance to win by selecting the correct answer to the trivia question below and emailing it with your name, address and email address to webmaster@animationmagazine.net (mailto:webmaster@animationmagazine.net) with the subject line "Ferdinand Giveaway".

Question: Since the original book is so slim, Ferdinand introduced a much bigger world and plenty of new animal pals for the bullish hero. Can you spot the correct name + animal character combos?

A. Taco the Dog, Lupe the Cow, Benson the Bull
B. Lupe the Goat, Hans the Horse, Valiente the Bull
C. Greta the Goat, Helga the Hedgehog, Cunigunde the Cow
D. Conejito the Rabbit, Jorge the Hedgehog, Guapo the Bull

Good luck!
