I talk about interactive stories, but what does that mean and how does it work in a story? www.inklestudios.com writes about basic kinds of interactive stories. It’s really fantastic because it shows that you don’t have to be a multi-million dollar game designer or a film producer or an uber-genius computer programmer. It’s not about the technology, its about the story.

All because there is no joy like the simple joy of a tale well told.

A couple highlights from Inkle Studios:

  • Talking to the Narrator (If the story is written in first-person, with the protagonist talking to camera, then the interactivity can be the voice of the reader talking back.)
  • Choose the Story Order (Make your interactivity just about what order things are read – as though the reader was sifting through letters in a drawer, or considering the evidence in a court case.)
  • Change Points of View (Tell a single story, but let the reader choose whose viewpoint they see it from, and switch between these points of view as the story unfolds.)
