The Digital StoryLab was created to investigate various aspects of narrative expression with the aim of developing novel and innovative entertainment for future generations. The Digital StoryLab is part of the School of Mathematical and Computer Sciences (MACS) at Heriot-Watt University.
The Digital Story Lab has a unique set of interdisciplinary skills. We have established close links, through common research interests, with the School of Engineering and Physical Sciences (EPS) and the School of Life Sciences (SLS) at Heriot-Watt University. While the focus is on interaction and storytelling, the Digital Story Lab is by definition multidisciplinary and research has branched out recently in the domain of Serious Games (Serious games mechanics).
Our aim is to produce research excellence through innovative thinking, sound research experimentation, collaborative links within and outside of Heriot-Watt University and by producing high-visibility demonstrators through RA and PhD work.
