An Authoring Tool to Derive Valid Interactive Scenarios

In recent years, many tools have been proposed to design interactive scenarios. The aim of these tools is to provide users with a framework in order to write a story with many branches which will be unfolded by an artificial intelligence application. However, the consistency and quality of the generated narratives are not guaranteed (deadlocks, flaws, etc.). Previous work has defined the properties of a valid interactive scenario and proposed an approach as well as a tool based on a formal model, Linear Logic, to validate these properties. Nevertheless, the application of this tool requires many special skills and so is not really suitable for normal users. In this paper, we present an authoring tool which allows modeling interactive scenarios and analysing them at the structural level using the deduction rules in Linear Logic. Thanks to our tool, normal users are able to create and validate interactive scenarios in comparison with a rich set of predefined properties/criteria of quality.
