Abstract

This paper examines the shift in interactive fictions (IF) from traditional hypertext narrative contexts to the recent trend of adapting social m edia to deliver highly multilinear narratives. While various story creation and distribution tools have been developed over the past 30 years that range in levels of interactivity and sophistication, these advancements have failed to address the aspect of cocreation. In this paper, we present the Logue system, which breaks down fiction into small episodes and tags them with metadata, making actionable units to empower co-creators. Based on the need assessments from a focus group, two prototypes were implemented to test if sorting by metadata complements what is lacking in conventional node and link approach in IF. Findings demonstrate that Logue can help creators not only structure the intricate storylines of cocreated content but also provide diverse ways of understanding the story differently by viewing it from different perspectives of metadata.
