The past, present & future of interactive narrative storytelling: narrative as architecture

Narrative Through Architecture

In Part 4 of their conversation about interactive narrative experiences, Raven Sun Creative’s Louis Alfieri and Tim Madison look at interactive storytelling through the lens of “narrative architecture”.
