Novella: A Proposition for Game-Based Storytelling
Start date: 9 July 2018
Video game narrative has many complexities that are difficult to capture due to the broad range of interactions the player may have and the numerous presentation methods found within games. While existing models of digital narrative do address interactivity, they do not always address the full breadth of agency available to players in games. We contribute a meta-analysis of select existing models in the context of video games, and present Novella, a new game-centric model of narrative intending to capture these difficulties.
