Transcript

  • 1. Interactive Fiction
  • 2. What are you talking about?
    A series of books where each story is written from a second-person point of view, with the reader assuming the role of the protagonist and making choices that determine the main character's actions and the plot's outcome.
  • 3. Choices
    The books are formatted so that the protagonist encounters conflicts that present him with choices.
    The reader must decide what the character does.
  • 4. Why haven’t I heard of these?
    They were super popular in the 80s and 90s, but can still be found in book stores today.
  • 5. There’s always a hero.
    This person faces a lot of decisions throughout the story.
    So, you’ll have to set up some instabilities in this person’s life.
  • 6. Point of View
    SECOND PERSON
    It’s the reader that controls the story.
    As the writer(s) of a CYOA story, you let the reader decide what happens next.
  • 7. There are a lot of problems.
    When a book has 32 possible endings, the reader has had to make at least 6 choices to get there.
  • 8. They’re adventure stories.
