Abstract [en]

This paper will detail the prototyping and subsequent production of an digital narrative experience utilizing the theories of Vladimir Propp. The prototype will examine the theories detailed in Propps Morphology of the Folktale. It will implement Propps narrative functions according to a general scheme, connected by connectives. The prototype will dynamically generate narratives according to this scheme. Finally, this paper will draw conclusions about the advantages of a Propp-based system of narrative generation and the narratives produced compared to other digital narratives, such as hypertext.
