As you travel down the road of life you will often find yourself in places where there are many options and opportunities.
Imagine telling that story using media that allows you to amplify that feeling of choice. Or conversely, in the spirit of great drama your choices become less and less until you only have two choices, then one, which means you have no choice at all. (Here is where the great storyteller exacerbates the situation making that lack of choice a great agony which can only be prolonged or cut short for the inevitable.)
But interactive storytelling isn’t just about choice within the story.
What about HOW you access the story? How the story becomes ever more real to you through personalisation.
Or can you contribute your own ideas and media to a grand shared narrative?
There are many flavours of interactive storytelling and each has different ways for the audience to be more involved with the story as it unfolds.
