Interactive Narrative: Theory and Practice (15 Jun 2004)
This thesis is a re-examination of the overused and misunderstood medium 'interactive narrative.' Though there are many works that try to discuss the theory of interactive narrative, very few offer anything in terms of critical understanding. By contrast, this thesis tries to find the definition for the word and expose the concepts that make it different from other forms of media and interactive media, such as interactive fiction, interactive storytelling, interactive drama, and interactive story. The concepts outlined include sections on suspension of freedom, interactive story, interactive discourse, and co-authorship.
