Interactive Digital Narrative : History, Theory and Practice, Hardback Book

Description

The book is concerned with narrative in digital media that changes according to user input-Interactive Digital Narrative (IDN).

It provides a broad overview of current issues and future directions in this multi-disciplinary field that includes humanities-based and computational perspectives.

It assembles the voices of leading researchers and practitioners like Janet Murray, Marie-Laure Ryan, Scott Rettberg and Martin Rieser.

In three sections, it covers history, theoretical perspectives and varieties of practice including narrative game design, with a special focus on changes in the power relationship between audience and author enabled by interactivity.

After discussing the historical development of diverse forms, the book presents theoretical standpoints including a semiotic perspective, a proposal for a specific theoretical framework and an inquiry into the role of artificial intelligence.

Finally, it analyses varieties of current practice from digital poetry to location-based applications, artistic experiments and expanded remakes of older narrative game titles.
