This study investigates whether an interactive surround video is perceived as more enjoyable when there is some auditory feedback on interactive moments. We constructed a questionnaire that measured presence, effectance, autonomy, flow, enjoyment, system usability, user satisfaction and identification, filled in by two groups of respondents who had either watched an interactive movie on Oculus Rift with feedback sounds, or a version without. Our results show that users rated presence…

Evaluating the influence of location and medium applied to mobile VR storytelling
The results show that the user experience while watching a narrative fluctuates depending on the location where is viewed and the device in which is viewed, which leads to a significantly increased Flow, Presence, and Narrative Transportation.

Enjoyment: At the Heart of Media Entertainment
This article suggests an integrated view of media entertainment that is capable of covering more of the dimensional complexity and dynamics of entertainment experiences than existing theories do.
Exploring Replay Value: Shifts and Continuities in User Experiences Between First and Second Exposure to an Interactive Story
An exploratory experiment using the interactive drama "Façade" to examine shifts and continuities in entertainment-related user experiences between first and second exposure to the same system suggests that replay produces gains in action-related experience components such as presence and effectance.
Interactive Cinema: Engagement and Interaction
This position paper examines how narrativity, interactivity and engagement are mutually reshaped within this new domain of media entertainment, addressing both the production and the user experience of new types of interactive cinematography.
The Experience of Interactive Storytelling: Comparing "Fahrenheit" with "Façade"
Using a broad range of entertainment-related measures, the experience of Interactive Storytelling was found to depend strongly on interactivity and to differ substantially across the systems, with “Facade” achieving a stronger connection between interactive use and the resulting profile of entertainment experiences.
Interactive films and coconstruction
A model for interactive narration that is based on the audience's ability to read and interpret footage differently according to its context is presented, and through a detour narrative model it is possible to engage audiences in a coconstructive hypermedia experience while at the same time minimizing the amount of footage required.
Real Story Interaction: The Role of Global Agency in Interactive Storytelling
Findings suggest that experiential qualities reached higher levels when players believed to have an impact on the story outcome (global agency), and systematic gender differences in user experiences are discussed.
Being in the Story: Readerly Pleasure, Acting Theory, and Performing a Role
It is argued that reimagining interaction as participation in a story opens up an important new design space for digital narratives: one which emphasizes the readerly pleasure of transforming into a character rather than the authorial pleasure of rewriting the events of the story.
Achieving the Illusion of Agency
A non-branching game that simulates branching choices by providing players with choices followed by immediate textual feedback and hypothesize that this game, where player decisions do not significantly change the course of the game, will maintain the player's sense of agency.
Surround video: a multihead camera approach
A versatile process for stitching seamlessly synchronized streams of videos into a single surround video corresponding to the video of the multihead camera is presented and a general registration process onto raymaps based on minimizing a tailored objective function is devised.
