Characters on the Internet: The Next Generation
The Internet is breeding inspiration among designers, story tellers, and interactive programmers, compelling them to develop next-generation digital characters that fully exploit the interactive nature of the medium. These characters respond and interact with human participants and each other while displaying their own unique personalities, behaviors, and dramatic involvements. A diverse group of panelists discussed and demonstrated their latest works and inventive methods of delivering Internet character-based experiences.
