Title: Background Information - version two
Post by: KirstyM on July 23, 2018, 04:32:45 pm
A little bit of background information about the study:

I'm researching into narrative game mechanics- mechanics that tell a narrative or contribute to the game's narrative/story. When successful they should encourage the player to interpret the story. A game that doesn't have an explicit story, like Inside (by Playdead) makes good use of narrative game mechanics as the player needs to interpret the events happening in the game.

As part of my study, I'm looking at whether narrative game mechanics are present in interactive fiction- a text-based format that has been shown to have game-like qualities.

This game is designed to be used as an exploratory tool. Its purpose is so that I can try and establish from a writing/design perspective how narrative game mechanics might present themselves within interactive fiction. The game is to be used as an iterative tool, with the feedback provided being used to help narrow down where any narrative game mechanics are being used.

Please feel free to ask further questions.
