Interactive Youtube Video
Another proof you don’t have to have a lot of money to be clever on the web.
This dude has created a online media first; an interactive Youtube experience, on his own.
The goal is to find his lost cat. It’s a home made video, so as you’d expect, the quality is not very good, yet it managed to make me want to find it’s bloody cat I don’t give a damn about, despite this guy being pretty annoying. There is a video where you can decide to harm him, which I found quite satisfying.
Anyway, I diggress. This is a very interesting use of the ‘responses’in Youtube as a way to continue the adventure, add interactivity and allow the viewer to decide what happens next.
I’m already working on how to make it a great, just to make sure I’ll be the first to announce a Youtube branded experience. ;-)
Anyway, have a play. It is not without reminding me of some of my youth favourite books, the fighting fantasy series.
You need to be on Youtube to start playing it though. So you need to click the link below.
