Leeds School of Arts Academic Developing an Innovative Story Game App
Dr Anna Zaluczkowska, a reader from Leeds School of Arts, is supporting the development of a new prototype story gaming app through the SSN. Anna needs writers and colleagues working within media to play some stories as well as offer feedback through the SSN.
The Secret Story Network (SNN) is a Leeds Becket University research project and a partnership between interactive story experts, academics, TV writers, producers, directors, app builders and audiences.
They recently received funding to build a prototype app and develop new story games. As part of this exciting work SNN are running a series of live stories and a workshop to discover what stories, technology and functionality will improve these collaborative experiences.
