Interactive Narratives: a tool to comprehend complexity
Narrative has always had an important role in
knowledge transfer and meaning-making. Interactive digital narratives (IDN) bring
these functions into the 21st century by allowing users to actively
influence the narrative outcome, to make decisions and experience consequences,
and to replay and reconsider their choices and behaviours.
In this way IDNs are
tools to communicate, discuss and comprehend complexity and therefore a key 21st century
toolset for citizens and policymakers alike.
