Junket Adventure

Junket adventures place users in a narrative that requires them to make choices.

There is a single start point and end location. In between the start and end location are decision points. Decision points are places, or points of interest (POIs) that require the user to make a decision. Each decision takes the user along a different path.

Decisions consist of two options:
1. Multiple Choice:User selects between 2 and 4 options

2. Fill in the Blank:User must type in specific numbers or letters
(they must figure this out, don't give them the answer)

Adventures should:

You will want to create two items:

1. A logic map with numbers corresponding to the stops in your story. Breaking it down logically and writing the stories around the logic is a great approach.

2. A document with the content for each of the stops. Each stop must have an image and / or a video associated with it.

Decision: Fill in
