The Thing Growing: Content Description

The Thing Growing is a Virtual Reality Interactive Narrative. It's focus is the construction of the "Thing", a virtual character. The goal of the project is to create an interactive story in which the user is the main protagonist and engages at an emotional level with the Thing and its world.

The project is structured in three acts in order to take advantage of narrative tools like pacing, surprise and movement through time. Each act also engages the user in interactivity.

In the image on the left the orange/purple being is an avatar of the user. All the images on this and the following pages were captured from the computer in real time as a user interacted with the virtual environment.

The project is still in progress and a vital part of its growth is and has been showing it, observing how people interact with it and getting feedback from the users.
