An interactive story is in many ways a very fancy way of describing a game. It combines the familiar beats and elements of written or visual narrative, you would find in a book or a movie with the interaction-based elements that make up a game. As you direct your character through the interactive story game's environment, you complete tasks which gradually reveal more and more about the past, present and future of the world you're in. Sometimes your decisions will drive the plot. Sometimes you will solve riddles, piece together puzzles and explore the game's environment for every scrap of information you can find.
