Events, characters, and narrative structure give a sense of a narrative experience. This game has a strongly defined storyline with significant consequences and rewards to players (both for the game and life itself).
Interactivity is the crucial difference for this role-playing fictional game.
Whereas a viewer of a television show is a passive observer, a player in a role-playing game makes choices that affect the story and the games outcome.
This masterful role-playing game extends an older tradition of storytelling games where friends and/or participants collaborate to create a story.
