Résumé: This paper is a first step toward the exploration and further development of the narrative possibilities offered by emergent games. First, we present the five characteristics of emergent narratives that we believe to be fundamental: coherence, agency, possibility space, uncertainty and coauthoring. Then, we investigate the presence of these characteristics in various academic experiments. Finally, we describe a novel approach that provides players with high level actions that they can perform in order to manipulate the story in real time.
