LIA Cast 121 - Visual Novels, with Kasey Van Hise

Talking about interactive storytelling on the LIA Cast!

We've talked about interactive storytelling in the form of games, and we've spent plenty of episodes exploring the storytelling affordances of comics. But this time we're joined by Kasey Van Hise for an exploration of another kind of interactive fiction--the Visual Novel.

How does your writing and design approach change when you're creating something that's meant to be interactive? How does character development work when you have to consider every possible path of development? How does your thinking about plot change when considering reader decision points?

Kasey Van Hise, writer of the Hustle Cat visual novel, helps us navigate these concerns and offer tips on writing a visual novel of your own.
