  • 13. Definitions
      • Transmedia:
      • Transmedia storytelling, also called multiplatform, crossmedia or enhanced storytelling, is storytelling across multiple forms of media. By using different media, it attempts to create "entrypoints" through which consumers can become immersed in a story franchise's world. The aim of this immersion is decentralized authorship, or transmedial play.[1]
