Abstract:

  • A new form of storytelling which combines the visceral elements of gameplay with the emotional values of narrative is now beginning to emerge. Avant-garde cinema has prepared us for this kind of story in which associations are oblique and poetic and narrative drive gives way to user control. The difference between the old story and the new, the difference between cinema and the interactive, is the difference between the dream and the lucid dream.
