Learning outcomes

The aim of the course is to present the key concepts behind interactive storytelling as well as review proposed and existing systems.


The course begins with an introduction to storytelling and interactivity. There are two approaches to combine them: In character-centric storytelling, we focus on creating believable and complex characters and the story emerges from their interaction in a given setting. In author-centric storytelling, we focus on creating a plot that controls the character and adapts to changes while keeping the story dramatically compelling. The course ends with a broad review of existing and proposed interactive storytelling systems.
