Shared Story Worlds explores new models, frameworks, and best practices for creating, curating, sustaining, and maintaining collaborative entertainment properties which invite audiences to participate in the co-creation of the world and ideally rewards them for doing so (please read What is a Shared Story World? for a more detailed definition).
Shared Story Worlds examines this participatory entertainment space in several ways:
- Publishing articles about the unique aspects of shared story worlds (legal, narrative, creative, community)
- Publishing interviews with the creatives behind shared story worlds
- Maintaining a list of shared story worlds
The idea of an entertainment property that allows audience participation in content generation isn’t new, but it is becoming more prevalent. Indeed, there’s an increasing number of commercial participatory entertainment worlds.
Shared Story Worlds brings together many of the conversational threads about participatory entertainment.
