Stage - The Pixel Lab 2011-Dina Foxx. TILT. Book / Contact. Storytelling: digital technology allows us to tell tales in innovative new ways. The Edinburgh international book festival begins this week, featuring a fortnight of storytelling and literati self-promotion.
Looking at the 17 packed days of a programme filled with debates, talks, readings and keynotes, I've noticed that there is virtually no reflection on the cards for the "dead tree" version of the story that is threatening to shake-up publishing's centuries-old foundation. More so, it is surprising given the "digital first" bent of its headline sponsor, the Guardian, that there's no mention of apps, digital extensions or the new, multiformatted way of telling stories that's emerging among a new and talented crop of content creators supported by innovative and risk-taking storytelling outlets.
But I admit, picking on the book festival is unfair; linear stories still dominate the page, our TVs, our radios, our games consoles and the theatre. Yet the process of telling a story doesn't have to be unidirectional. Get Clued In to The BBC Code Challenge.

Hutchins, Novelist and Transmedia Storyteller In my previous post, I described how, using a combination of user-fueled curiosity, tactile interaction, and brilliant visual animations, authors can deliver narrative revelations that simply cannot be experienced using traditional storytelling techniques. Today, we take the narrative to the next level, adding even more rich interaction to our story. Recall that this narrative is mostly text-based and presented as a well-crafted traditional novel or novella. (There’s no substitute for great writing.) The Tulse Luper Suitcases. The Tulse Luper Suitcases is a multimedia project by Peter Greenaway, initially intended to comprise four films, three "source" and one feature, a 16-episode TV series, and 92 DVDs, as well as Web sites, CD-ROMs and books.
Once the online Web-based portion of the project was completed, the "winner" having taken a trip following Tulse Luper's travels (and often imprisonment) during his first writings about the discovery of uranium in Moab, Utah in 1928 to his mysterious disappearance at the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, the final, feature film was released. Two books and three feature films were released to supply material to the Flash/Web designers who competed in a contest to make one of the 92 Flash-based "suitcase" games featured on the interactive, online site The Tulse Luper Journey.

The Millennium series consists of three bestselling novels, originally written in Swedish, by the late Stieg Larsson (1954–2004).
The two primary characters in the saga are Lisbeth Salander, a woman in her twenties with a photographic memory and poor social skills, and Mikael Blomkvist, an investigative journalist and publisher of a magazine called Millennium. Blomkvist, the character, has a history similar to Larsson, the author. Larsson planned the series as having ten installments, but due to his sudden death, only three were completed and published. They are: Etude de cas: Write All Night, un jeu de la New York Public Library. Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure Trailer “See it again for the first time” – Star Wars, la saga d’une œuvre inachevable.

Play Thomas Dolby’s new game, “The Floating City” The Floating City is a rich multiplayer transmedia game within a living world based around Thomas Dolby’s latest musical endeavors.
“The Floating City is set against a dystopian vision of the 1940s that might have existed had WWII turned out a lot differently,” says Dolby. A global energy experiment went haywire, the Earth’s magnetic fields have been reversed, and the planetary climate system violated. Science has betrayed us: now what must the species do to survive? Survivors explore a fictional Google map, forming tribes and trading relics amid a bizarre sea-going barter society. As they struggle to unravel the enigma that is the Floating City, players can haggle over merchandise and music downloads — including brand-new songs from A Map of the Floating City, Dolby’s first album in 20 years, which will be released following the climax of the game.
Winter Is Coming. (A Transmedia Fiction Experience with J.C.) This afternoon, a package from HBO arrived at my doorstep.
Curious, I grabbed my vidcam and documented what quickly became not only an awesome "unboxing" video, but an amazing -- and remarkably unconventional -- narrative journey. Ride shotgun with me as you get an unfiltered, as-it-happens look at this amazing HBO package as I experience it ... and learn a little about the world of HBO's upcoming fantasy series Game Of Thrones (based on the terrific novel series by George R.R. Martin) along the way. For viewers who want a closer look at the images seen briefly in the videos, check the gallery below for larger versions. And do be careful out there.
