This course explores the techniques, structures, and possibilities of storytelling in which the reader / viewer can make decisions which impact the story itself. The course focuses on interactive storytelling as implemented in digital platforms such as video games, the internet, interactive fiction and film, and augmented / virtual reality. We will also discuss some examples of interactive storytelling in non-digital media. Students will learn concepts relevant to interactive storytelling, consider examples in a variety of genres, and complete assignments leading to the generation of an interactive story using tools appropriate for beginners.
