This was inspired by the Choose your own adventures series from the 80s and 90s. Interactive storytelling is seeing a revival with technology catching up and demonstrated in Netflix’s Bandersnatch.
In some ways, this is possibly a personal therapy for myself for the what ifs in my life, especially from a career perspective. Perhaps if this progresses well I could look at creating an adventure in romance, friendships and maybe even sci-fi adventures from scratch and seek audience input, apart from their participation.
I wanted to start out with careers because there seems to be a big gap based on sessions of mentoring back in the university. The interactive element might be something that could serve as a useful immersive storytelling tool that helps the students relive my PTSD at work and what could have been done better.
