Abstract

The theoretical understanding of interactive digital narrative must evolve in order to accommodate recent trends and development in the practice of this constantly evolving form of human expression. This edition of our workshop series at ICIDS concentrates on artifacts produced or released in the last two years. In addition, it broadens the perspective by asking participants to present examples of their own choosing to the workshop in order to ensure as much breadth in the understanding of current works as possible. The presented artifacts will then be analyzed and classified with a cutting-edge theoretical perspective based on our continued research into a combined universal theoretical perspective for interactive digital narrative.
