Gaming and storytelling tools for shaping the next generation– helping build a more resilient and sustainable society.

”I like to say that when you watch a movie you are very passive and you're watching something without doing anything, but the director is guiding you through his own journey, which is beautiful because sometimes we want that. But there's another part of it that's interactive, that's immersive where you want to be the storyteller and be able to navigate and go through certain areas in a plot. So if it's a game or a movie would be amazing for you to be able to carve out your own story, have the tools to do that, and be able to see what the outcome is and there's probably more than one outcome. This is kind of exciting because then there are a lot of aspects to that because it could go even further. It's not just telling a story here, it's really about, there's a lot of elements you can add into, it so you

could bring other people into it, you can make it more group-oriented instead of individual, just watching a movie and not saying anything, but you're talking out loud

you're there's human interaction happening. So that intrigues me a lot and I could go further into that, but it is an amazing way of thinking when you kind of dissect it into its smallest form and realize how we were told stories which now social media broke us out of that and it's not only for the celebrities or radio hosts to take over the screen. It's everyone. Everyone can now be there be their own identity and so I think immersive entertainment is going in that direction where people can be entertained but they want control of it. ” - Zai Ortiz
