Creators of immersive experiences in virtual reality, augmented reality, and mixed reality have relied heavily on familiar storytelling techniques used in books, theatre, and film — often with confusing and unengaging results. Stephanie Riggs argues in The End of Storytelling that in order to develop powerful stories in these emerging mediums, we need nothing short of a paradigm shift in how we approach and conceptualize immersive narratives. Along the way, Riggs reveals why “storytelling” as we know it doesn’t work, what elements of human interaction and classical storytelling inform the story of the future, and how to embrace the innate capabilities of immersive technology. The End of Storytelling is informed by over two decades of work in both immersive and classical mediums, and is rich with examples, inspiration, and challenges for anyone interested in, or currently developing, effective immersive experiences. Its symphonic exploration presents fascinating context of our relationship to storytelling, and a practical blueprint for the future of narrative.
