Framed: putting context in the player's hands [A new approach to interactive storytelling]

Framed: putting context in the player's hands [A new approach to interactive storytelling] | Intro to Literature | Scoop.it

Tracey Lien:  "In most video games, players are entrusted with performing actions: run, jump, shoot, swing, slash, crouch and curb-stomp. The developer sets the scene, establishes the context and the player is released into the world with an arsenal of actions. In Loveshack Entertainment's Framed, things work the other way around." 

 

"So I had this idea," Joshua Boggs tells Polygon, "I thought, what if there was a guy who was trapped in someone else's work of fiction? What would that look like as a game?"

Deanya Lattimore Schempp's insight:

Reminds me of Led Zeppelin's _In Through the Out Door_ interior album jackets.  I realized a few years ago that story arc is particular to the character's point of view, and should be talked about in that way, so this really adds a dimension to the analysis that could help students imagine stories from multiple perspectives.

A detailed look at the creative process behind a new approach to interactive storytelling in video games.

Hanson Zandi's curator insight, May 8, 2013 7:40 AM

With Graphic novels being vogue and interactive media sought after- this is a great game by Loveshack Entertainment. It puts the audience in control to craft the story.

Deanya Lattimore Schempp's insight:

Flash fiction attention spans get their audiences.  I'm personally hooked on the new WIGS channel on YouTube, where most episodes are between 4 and 8 minutes long.

And, at the opposite end of the scale from binge viewing ... is episodic storytelling.  It's interesting to compare this with the recent release of 'House of Cards' on Netflix.

Strange to tell Joseph Campbell's Hero With A Thousand Faces with Lego characters but it flies by faster chan Campbell.
Martin (Marty) Smith's curator insight, January 7, 2013 8:55 PM

Could this 65 slide deck have saved me plowing through Joseph Campbell's Hero With A Thosand Faces? Not really, but its fun and flies by providing ADD insight into the basis of all stories.

If you haven't watched the Lizzie Bennett Diaries yet, and you enjoy discussing novels and/or films, you are missing out. Lots of great psychological analysis in this post.

Keith Stuart: Jane Austen's novel is effectively all about systems and subterfuge; so we're halfway there already

Deanya Lattimore Schempp's insight:

Well, people are already playing these kinds of immersive world games in Second Life, and people are already studying the effects of "levelling up" social relationships within world games like Second Life.  This writer might want to check out 1920s Berlin in SL or the new Russian historical sim, or one of the many French courts in which one may learn and practice courtly manners.

And besides, Red Dwarf already had "Pride and Prejudice Land" in 1997, and Kryten was able to win the game with a bulldozer...
