Playable Media

Game definitions:

Agon (chess)
Alea (game of chance)
Mimicry (Hamlet)
Ilinx (virtigo, dizziness)

Questions:

1. What is a narrative?
2.  Provide an example of interactive art piece. In what ways hypertext is not a game?
3. What is the difference between interactivity and playability?
4. In what ways does the narrative unfold? What can you compare it with?
