"Is an interactive narrative, i.e. its plot is varied by the user’s reactions. Thus the user becomes an active part of the narrative. You as the author define the user’s role within the narrative and her actions’ effect on the narrative. A Korsakow-Project consists of several Movies (moving image sequences) and the Database. A Movie can be seen as a chapter of a book ; within a Korsakow- Project it is the smallest narrative unit SMU. The Database contains a set of rules (information on each Movie), which define which Movies the user is going to be offered next – and in what way they are going to be presented.
The Korsakow System consists of two applications: the Korsakow-Tool enables the author to create an interactive narrative ( called Korsakow- Project ); the Korsakow-Engine enables the user to view the Korsakow-Project. There are also workshops, where you can learn about a new way of storytelling using the [korsakow system]. The workshops are organized by the Mediamatic Foundation
