Interactive Storytelling (2016 Autumn)

Organisation: UTU / Dept. of Information Technology

Credit Points: 5

Responsible Person: Jouni Smed

Course code: TKO_2029

Learning outcomes:
The aim of the course is to present the key concepts behind interactive storytelling as well as review proposed and existing systems.

Contents:
The course begins with an introduction to storytelling and interactivity. There are two approaches to combine them: In character-centric storytelling, we focus on creating believable and complex characters and the story emerges from their interaction in a given setting. In author-centric storytelling, we focus on creating a plot that controls the character and adapts to changes while keeping the story dramatically compelling. The course ends with a broad review of existing and proposed interactive storytelling systems.
