Interview starts at 8:33 and ends at 33:40
“An interactive story is essentially a series of interlocking short stories. I think a lot of authors kind of forget about that, and they end up writing a story where at the end of it, it’s like ‘Okay, you saw a spaceship, and then you thought to call the police and then you decided whether you should call your friend, and then you decided whether you should take a picture and put it on Instagram and then you went on the spaceship and you met the aliens, and it was fine. The end.’ Well, yeah, you had a number of choices, but they were all very similar to one another and that is not a story that anyone would write by itself.”
