So tell me what happened: turning agent-based interactive drama into comics
As virtual characters become more autonomous, their use in interactive drama is growing. By creating interesting and well authored personalities, these characters are able to interact with each other and create appealing non-scripted stories. As with any other story, we may want to re-tell it or create a summary of the essential parts. Our goal was to create comic-like summaries of these stories. This paper presents a system that analyses story logs, looks at the characters' emotional information to understand their actions and their importance in the story, selects the most important events and creates comic strips. Forty users evaluated the system and the results show that the summaries driven by the characters' emotional information are effective when compared with showing the stories as they unfold.
