The porject was presented at Interact 2003 - International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction, September 1-5, 2003 - Zurich, Switzerland.
Project Objectives:
  • Intimate Interaction:
    A touch based interface and familiar gestures, recognized by a responsive simulated character, create a more intimate interaction.
  • Continuous Interaction:
    The story does not wait for the participant to make explicit decisions. Narrative progression is influenced indirectly by the participantís behaviour
  • Narrative Depth and Coherence:
    A believable character, a meaningful story and a narrative structure that is both variable and coherent
