An interactive story, sometimes called story mode, is a game genre with a main focus of choice-making and mostly has point-and-click gameplay. This has become popular in Scratch since "Scratch: Story Mode" by Scratcher -Cinematic-. The style of point-and-click, however, dates back all the way to the earliest existing project.
How to Make an Interactive Story
There are projects within Scratch that will help with the process, but creating interactive stories is fairly simple when it becomes a habit. Multiple sprites may be needed for the player character, since interactive games require the player to be unable to control the player character during cutscenes. Here is a key component to making a story mode:
- When making an interactive story, be aware that if the player can control the player character after an animation or choice sequence that the player character can't move until the animation or choice sequence is over. Do not use a forever block, though. Instead, use a 'repeat () times' or 'repeat until <>' block.
