BotStory offers a chatbot that inspires you to write a collaborative short story through a social story game.
The rise of the conversational interface has cleared the way to transform chatbots into storytellers. It’s time to explore this new storytelling format! BotStory offers a chatbot that inspires you to write a collaborative short story. While chatting, you become part of this social story game. BotStory is connected to historical writers like Oscar Wilde, who will inspire you with his own writings, learnings, and thoughts. The bot functions as an educational storytelling tool as well as a new social companion that makes a connection to the past, present, and future of storytelling.
This project was created for the Future of Storytelling Festival exhibition, New York, 2016, and the Story Space expo of Nederlands filmfestival 2016.
