Thought I might raise the idea of Interactive narratives in games, using database as the primary form of accessing story.
Check out the story machine!
Awesome little interactive narrative demostration.. try and guess what the story is??
Basically interactive narrative is the idea of telling a story where the delivery is of a non-linear nature. Where the outcome (story) is a resultant of how the user navigated or transversed the narrative.
I find this one of the most interesting concepts to come out the convergence of digital and traditional media. The Primary focus is the delivery of the story (narrative) and not the story itself...
post ya ideas on this
