Ever wondered what Don Draper does between two episodes of Mad Men? Most likely, he drinks more whisky, maybe runs errands, meets charming women...
Unfortunately we, the audience, will never know for sure since we can only passively witness what the show lets us see through that weekly 40-minute window.
Now imagine if you could extend that world beyond the episodes and your TV screen, make it interactive, build additional story lines, let viewers choose their own adventure, or connect with the characters! How about doing the same for a game you play with your friends, or a documentary on an real-world issue dear to your heart, or even a marketing stunt for that killer idea you plan on launching?
