The past, present & future of interactive narrative storytelling: part 1

What is the future of interactive storytelling?

Choose your own adventure. That’s long been the dream: the ability to step into a fictional world and live it according to your own rules, to control your own fate within a story of your own creation. 

The rapid advance of technology is opening up new realms of interactive storytelling possibility, moving us closer to a realization of that dream. The lines between story and experience, physical and digital, destination and virtual space, creator and user are blurring. The audience is being elevated to the roles of active participants and co-creators. 

What is interactive storytelling and what’s the real promise of the medium? How do storytellers, experience designers, destinations, and attractions navigate the multitude of diverging pathways ahead?
