Abstract


This paper presents an interactive narrative framework we have designed for games that promote health behavior change. The framework aims to address two key issues: player engagement with the game, and player adherence to the health behavior change-related homework they receive in the game. In this paper, we describe our narrative system that tackles these issues and a prototype game that promotes physical activity in which our narrative system is integrated.
