An index for storytelling tropes made possible by medium interactivity.
Storytelling tropes that are exclusive to interactive media (primarily Video Games but also others, e.g. Visual Novels). Contrast pure gameplay tropes like Various Videogame Views, Video Game Difficulty Tropes, Video Game Interface Elements, etc.
Narrative branchingMutually exclusive events occur in the story, depending on the player's actions.
Variable endingsThe story shows different outcomes depending on the player's actions.
Narrative rearranging/re-sequencingSame events occur in the story but the player can decide on the order of their occurrence or presentation.
Narrative filigreeSome events only occur in the story if the player takes specific actions and are non-essential to overall plot.
Narrative parallelizationGameplay input runs in parallel with story output.
Sub-index of Videogame Tropes and Visual Novel Tropes. Should We Have This??
