Zzzzzzzzzzip! Proposal

What makes a good interactive story? Ummmmmm, I don’t know… yet. I love all kinds of storytelling, from books to comics to movies to animations, but more specifically, I love interactive stories. Stories the ‘reader’ changes or participates in. Ever heard of Choose your own Adventure? Basically, you get to choose what happens in the story, like choosing the red pill or the blue pill. These choices the reader makes changes the plot of the story. Another example of an interactive story is video games, Beyond Two Souls is a great example of interactive stories in video games. Ok, I’ll have plenty of time to talk about this later, so I’ll get on with this proposal. I grew up reading Choose your own Adventure books and playing lots of video games (and still am), so I’m getting pretty excited just writing about them.

 

Like I’ve said, I’ve played many video games and read many books, so I do have a background, but a small one. Not every video game is an interactive story nor every book. I am learning some video editing skills and know how to create very, very, very, very simple games. I hope to expand at looking at things closer and time management. I want to be able to set self due dates and stick to them.

 

I don’t know anyone to go to for research, but the internet can be a very friendly place if you know where to look. Playing storyline video games and reading adventure books will help me gather first-hand knowledge. I am hoping to present this knowledge in a short video, kinda like what IGN makes about video games, or make a small ‘game’ like a digital choose your own adventure.
