Carolyn Handler Miller's Digital Storytelling - A Creator's Guide to Interactive Entertainment from Focal Press shows you how to create immersive, interactive narratives across a multitude of platforms, devices, and media. From older storytelling techniques to up to date development processes, this book covers creating stories for all forms of New Media, including transmedia storytelling, video games, mobile apps, and second screen experiences.
The way a story is told, a message is delivered, or a narrative is navigated has changed dramatically over the last few years. Stories are told through video games, interactive books, and social media. Stories are told on all sorts of different platforms and through all sorts of different devices. They're immersive, letting the user interact with the story and letting the user enter the story and shape it themselves.
This book features case studies that cover a great spectrum of platforms and different story genres. It also shows you how to plan processes for developing interactive narratives for all forms of entertainment and non-fiction purposes: education, training, information and promotion. Digital Storytelling features interviews with some of the industry's experienced professionals, showing you how they build and tell their stories.
