Interesting Idea…If It Worked

trikeman

I’m sure a lot of this has to do with my phone being a few years old…but so are a lot of people’s phones, so I don’t feel unjustified. Video playback was a nightmare: I got about 2 seconds per frame, with audio stuttering throughout. Occasionally it froze for so long that I missed an entire choice I was supposed to make.

A lot of things could be done with this to make it interesting, and I hope they are done, but from what I saw, it was halfway between traditional video and interactive experience (also known as a game), with the worst of both video and games, rather than the best of both. I felt like I was watching a character external from myself, not playing a role like in many games, but unlike any traditional video, I was expected to understand the internal workings of a character whom I had no special information for. If you want to interact and play a role in telling a story, go all the way and check out something like one of Telltale’s games, Her Story, or Device 6, to name a few. If you want to watch video, just pick from any of the tons of streaming apps available, let it play back (mostly) without stuttering, and maybe use the passive nature to multi-task something else.

Great Story, Flawed App

I'm halfway through the last episode of #WarGames and I can't finish it! I've watched the first half three times trying to get it to work, but it always crashes at the same point and doesn't save the progress! I really like the story, and it's the worst kind of torture to get so far into it and not be able to see how it ends!

This app also makes my phone (iPhone X) almost too hot to hold and drains the battery faster than any other app I've had, fast enough that the battery percentage still drops if it's plugged in and it drops from almost 100% to completely dead in the span of one episode if it's not.

Exciting

I’ve only watched one episode (and at low quality thanks to the fact that my phone was in low-power mode), but this is some of the most interesting storytelling I’ve experienced in a long time. I’m going to tell my buddies with a literary or cinematic inclination to give this a go. Beyond that, I’m excited to explore this new form of narrative. I’m not sure whether this will be more compelling than AR/VR narration, but it doesn’t have to be an either/or situation. In sum: huge potential and great so far.
