Summary
  • The characters within interactive CD-ROM games and movies, and not necessarily the plot or the special effects, are what make the products so interesting. CD-ROM developers are beginning to realize this and resolve some of the problems with characters. One problem is that many interactive games are written by inexperienced writers, but this will change as better writers try writing for CD-ROMs. Another problem is that most CD-ROMs are user-oriented so there is not much character development because the user is the main character. Some of the better CD-ROM products available are good because users can watch a character develop through the course of an adventure. While users may become frustrated with a plot or the difficulty of a game, they will be drawn back by curiosity for the character's lives. Multimedia developers will eventually be distinguished by their game characters, not by special effects.
