Harmut Koenitz published his Five Theses for Interactive Digital Narrative (IDN)five-theses-for-interactive-digital-narrative
He publicly discussed his theses with Chris on his Games & Narrative site back in October of 2014.
- Part 1 – Authorship of interactive narratives
- Part 2 – Computational story models, how different perspectives affect the agenda
- Part 3 – The disciplinary divide, the communal approach vs. solitary genius
- Part 4 – The five killer tasks in IDN, how an audience understands IDN
Thanks to Emily Short for first making me aware of the thesis. She’s got some posts on her site about ICIDS 2014, an academic conference on interactive storytelling that she attended that you may find interesting.
