Title: Facade
Authors: Mateas, Michael
Stern, Andrew
Keywords: Interactive cinema
Interactive theater
Issue Date: Jul-2005
Abstract: Facade is an artificial intelligence-based art/research experiment in electronic narrative - an attempt to move beyond traditional branching or hyper-linked narrative to create a fully-realized, one-act interactive drama. Integrating an interdisciplinary set of artistic practices and artificial intelligence technologies, the creators have completed a five year collaboration to engineer a novel architecture for supporting emotional, interactive character behavior and drama-managed plot. Within this architecture the creators have built a dramatically interesting, real-time 3D virtual world inhabited by computer-controlled characters, in which the player experiences a story from a first-person perspective. Facade was publicly released as a freeware download / cd-rom in July 2005.
