This is the final part of Branching Scenario Design Out Loud.
Having run through the prototype in Quandary as much as we could (I didn’t have Twine at the time), and making lots of tweaks to the wording, particularly to make it more conversational, it was time to create the Storyline version.
Because this wasn’t for a real client, we didn’t have brand guidelines to work with, or previous courses to maintain consistency with. I decided simply to use some default Storyline designs and characters. I’ve always felt a but uneasy about Storyline’s cartoon characters, and felt I could deliver something slightly more believable using photographic characters. If you know Storyline you’ll have seen these characters many times before, but for our audience – Jackie’s potential clients – they wouldn’t be so familiar.
