Sequel Stories is a storytelling bot that allows people to experience narrative in an interactive and conversational format

A new Facebook chatbot from Messenger is reinventing the traditional choose-your-own-adventure story to appeal to social media users. Dubbed , the bot allows users to experience an interactive narrative on-screen through a virtual “conversation.”

Users can pick from romance, mystery and comedy stories, each of which allows them to drive the plot by choosing between different options at various points in the story. Like an old school choose-your-own-adventure that requires readers to flip through the pages of a book once they reach a turning point in the action, each decision a user makes can take the tale in a completely new direction.
