Chain Tale

Chain Tale


– storytelling, Internet, chat, interaction

An experiment in interactive storytelling, Chain Tale is the Internet avatar of the old game of continuing a story of which one only knows the last sentence. Using iChat and MSN Messengers as a support, Chain Tale, when added to the list of contact, shares the last line of the ongoing story with the person, who adds a line and passes the contact on to one of his contacts. The results are collective, bizarrely surreal stories written by people all over the world who wouldn't otherwise be in touch with one another.
