Stories About Interactive Storytelling (12 Nov 1999)
I propose that the real key to unlocking the transformational qualities of interactive storytelling lies not with more powerful technology but with a deeper understanding of people and design. I will present a set of design guidelines and heuristics for engaging people in narrative activities based on my work designing character based interfaces, refining my own creative voice and storytelling skills, and designing workshops and online environments that facilitate the personal storytelling process. I will also examine what has worked and what has constituted some noble failures and consider which assumptions were na´ve and which appear to be standing the test of time by sifting through my own work and the body of work that now constitutes the field of interactive storytelling.
