Abstract

Building complete interactive narrative systems is hard. Building systems that are satisfying for naïve users is especially hard since small deficiencies in component technologies can easily destroy the experience for a user. In this paper I argue that we can ameliorate some of these technical limitations through careful choice of genre and style, and discuss a number of properties of farce that make it a particularly attractive choice. Then I will describe work in progress on Punch and Judy AI Playset, a system that allows users to explore possible narratives in the Punch and Judy story world.
