Building Emotional Characters for Interactive Drama

W. Scott Reilly

The Oz project is developing tools to create interactive, dramatic stories (Bates 1992). An important aspect of this work is to develop technology for creating the characters for these stories. We feel it’s critical that these characters appear emotional; just as characters in novels and movies that are unemotional are called "flat" and aren' t very believable, we expect the same applies to computer controlled drama as well.
