In their winning paper, titled “Achieving the Illusion of Agency,” the team shows that players of interactive stories can be made to feel agency, or the ability to meaningfully interact, without actually giving them meaningful choices. The paper was selected best out of 48 submitted papers.  To read the award-winning paper, click here.
