Digital fiction is fiction not designed to ever be in a paper format, instead it is viewed on a screen. It is more interactive than viewing on a e reader screen or watching a film. More like a video game. The ‘reader’ may be in the story, making decisions. Therefore a rare example of 2nd person narrative, where the reader gets to make choices about how the story pans out.
I learnt about digital fiction through involvement in a Sheffield Hallam university project. I ‘read’ Wallpaper at Bank Street Arts. It was on a big screen, with a joy stick to move around an old house looking for clues. The physical room was unlit to add to the atmosphere.
I’m about to download an app that is digital fiction … more on that to come!
