Session: Interactive Audio Adventure

Tag X

Interactive audio books for Voice are stories in which passive listeners become active participants. Instead of a linear plot, there are paragraphs with decision questions for the user. Thus, the users determine the story and become the heroes of their own personal narrative.
In our session, we will play the interactive thriller “Tag X” we created in cooperation with Bayerischer Rundfunk live. During the session, all participants will vote on the decisions to be made. This way, you can get a quick understanding of the exciting and diverse field of “interactive storytelling for voice”.
