Abstract:
Recent progress in narrative generation techniques for Interactive Storytelling supports increasingly longer stories. Consequently, the exploration of such automatically generated narratives for testing or evaluation purposes becomes increasingly difficult due to the many variants, even for stories of a few minutes' length. In this paper, we introduce a hypermedia method that supports the real-time navigation of 3D interactive narratives from their timeline description. The core idea behind our method is that it fully preserves the dynamic nature of the interactive narrative, unlike any form of visual replay or summarising. We illustrate the approach on a fully-implemented interactive narrative and show how it supports the exploration of different generated narratives in a way that assists testing and evaluation.
