My 1st Module: Interactive Fiction

When Choosing a topic for my very first module, it only took me a few moments to decide that it would be on the subject of interactive fiction. The reason for this quite simple, and that’s the fact that I have always had an interest in this form of storytelling. All my life I’ve always been interested in video and computer games as a form of storytelling, as I believe their are a wide variety of storytelling techniques that are simply not possible in film and television. I’ve spent years reading up on the history of storytelling within this medium, so before I even began this project I was aware that the 1979 game Zork was one of the first examples of storytelling within a video.  The reason I believe this medium to be important is because it truly represents the origin of an important form of digital storytelling in today’s entertainment world.
