A Different Kind of Story
It’s been said there’s more than one side to every story. We’d add that there’s more than one way to tell each side. Take the classic approach to storytelling in videogames. You move from one text-based narrative beat to the next, usually through a typical beginning, middle, and end. If not text, then dialogue.
That's not always the case with stories you find on the App Store. Here, there are thousands of wonderfully cool stories, but you’ll discover they’re told in ways you’d never expect. There’s fiction that drops traditional plot in favor of raw emotion, and tales with narrative told entirely through animation. A few more ditch words altogether in favor of music and sound.
We've got old-fashioned yarns too, but even these have secrets we don’t dare spoil.
