Inspiration: Classic Text Adventures
There are tons of interactive narrative masterpieces ignored in the modern age because of their antiquated delivery systems. This includes millions of text adventures and chose your own adventure stories. Many of these are now in the public domain.
What it does: Add Technology
By integrating modern technology we're able to rejuvinate and revive these works.
- IBM Watson reads the adventures and recognizes player speech for interaction.
- Using the Affectiva SDK, we bring in head tracking and emotional awareness.
- This actually revolutionizes immersive presence by removing the need for any extra equipment.
