Autonomic narration - an IFDB Poll

by Artran

I'd like to discover more games like Photopia, Rameses or Glass, in which the narration is rather independent on a player, and in which the interaction is somewhat limited because of strong characterisation and lack of real puzzles. In these games player can interact through parser with people and objects in a location. This isn't necessary, but it brings vividness. Rameses is very good example, because this game can be "finished" just by waiting (which obviously is not the point, but it's possible) and verbs should be selected with regard to main character and his personality. There is some kind of scene and some action. In the beginning for example, Rameses is in the bed and he's watching other boys in the room. As the story flows, boys are talking and Rameses can examine room or talk with the boys. But after some time, the scene changes to another scene. Etc, etc. Think about these games more like about interactive movie scripts. Thank you. (Last edited: 9/01/13)
