Geeked-Out Fairytales: Using Interactive Fiction and Gamification to Build Community Immersion

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Streaming Link: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/oscc5

Members of the Greyville Writer's Colony join together to demonstrate interactive and immersive storytelling. We'll include live and self-guided activities to teach how to use interactive fiction, NPC characters, game elements, and live performance to encourage deep exploration of regions and to build community. OpenSim is a vast world and filling that space with interesting activities helps region owners and community members connect with visitors when no one is available to greet them.
