Creativity Support for Story Construction Play Experiences

  • Max Kreminski University of California, Santa Cruz


My research involves the design and development of mixed-initiative AI tools that provide players with creativity support in the context of story construction play experiences, especially those driven by malleable simulations that the player has a chance to help design or configure. To that end, I also study existing storytelling practices within game communities as a way of understanding what a desirable computational creative partner might look like; what features of computational systems tend to facilitate and frustrate creativity in their human partners; and what new creative practices might emerge as we create computational creative partners for new domains.
