"When we think about bringing interactive fiction into the classroom we often focus on the technology. I’ve written here about using accessible tools such as Twine, Twine 2.0, Inform 7, and Inklewriter to create everything from games to interactive essays and digital humanities projects. Bringing in software of this type can be a great way to transform an assignment and add procedural literacy outcomes to a range of disciplines. However, before we get into the technology, we need an idea."

From Karen: Ooohhh ooooohh oooooohh -- this looks like a fabulous and fun tool for biz storytelling!! Now you can make your stories interactive. How fun is that?!!

I'll play with this tool this afternoon while avoiding all the shopping frenzy of Black Friday. Hope you have fun with it too and that it really helps connect with customers and build your business!

Thanks go to fellow curator Baiba Svenca for finding and sharing this post.

inklewriter is a free tool designed to allow anyone to write and publish interactive stories. It’s perfect for writers who want to try out interactivity, but also for teachers and students looking to mix computer skills and creative writing.

Kim Zinke (aka Gimli Goose)'s insight:

A nice feature of this resource is that you can export your story to Kindle for a small fee (approx $10). You be able to read your ebook on your Kindle, or sell it through Amazon. The ebook reads like a normal Kindle ebook, except that choices are included using hyperlinks.

"Fort McMoney is a documentary game. As a player your role is to explore the oil town of Fort McMurray, Canada, in the heart of the Athabasca oil sands development. You ‘meet’ characters and ‘vote’ on issues; scouring the interface for clues you aim to sway others through your posts. While Fort McMoney is playful it clearly shares documentary’s serious intent: in Fort McMoney ‘everything is real: the places, events, the characters.’ To play is to engage with the political, social and ecological issues of oil production.


Fort McMoney is part of a growing collection of works that marry the social, political and aesthetic ambitions of documentary with the forms and representational possibilities of digital media. Documentary makers are actively exploring new ways of telling stories and engaging audiences and they are doing so with reference both to new technologies and the idea of documentary – it’s techniques, aesthetics and critically, its social functions."

Kim Zinke (aka Gimli Goose)'s insight:

I'm a little partial to this documentary game as it's produced by Canada's National Film Board (NFB).  The NFB has been recognized as a world leader in transmedia and interactive media.  I grew up watching their films, and love to see themselves reinventing themselves to stay in the game.


I'm looking forward to digging deeper into Fort McMoney.  The format has been described as - where film marries video game.  I'm curious to see if it will impact my feelings about the place.
