    Abstract

    The existence of storytelling in interactive media has always been one of the major debates in game development that does not show signs of having a definitive answer. This study examines the elements of narrative structure through storytelling in conventional media to assess the influences this has had on the discourse and stories used in episodic games and content. During the course of investigation new techniques are discovered as we evaluate the possibility of story generating games and advances in interactivity that have allowed traditional structures to evolve into an interactive narrative. Through the examination of methods applied in episodic games the study approaches additional areas of relevance that lead to the possibility of further research into the vast galaxy of information surrounding the development and implementation of story in this digital era.
