'Experience Design for story- and game- Worlds' (XDW) describes a framework for experience design and transmedially structured projects. XDW brings together three elements: Transmedia Structure, Transmedia Architecture, and Experience Design.
I have abstracted the XDW framework from my design-thinking approach to transmedially expanded narratives and the resulting creative products.
My continuing developmental research into Transmedia Structure, focuses on meta-narratives in both transmedia storyworlds as well as specific transmedially architected narrative instalments:
- describing how multi-plots, parallel narratives, and fractured narratives are structured in various media, and how they form the core of transmedia narratives;
- incorporating writing for games as an approach to writing for playable media and extended narratives.
I welcome your comments and contributions to this thinking.
