Dreaming Methods' Digital Storytelling

Dreaming Methods is a website that features some of the best digital storytelling on the internet. With an archive of more than 20 works of interactive literature, it is a great place to learn about digital literature.

The site began its life on Amiga Public Domain during mid 1990s, as an archive of many of the projects created during that time.

Dreaming Methods is inspired largely by abstract concepts that would perhaps be difficult to capture using writing alone. The multi-layered complexity of dreams/nightmares and real/imagined memories that feature in many of the narratives are represented by a heavy mix of media that is designed to be compulsive and immersive. Projects are inspired by music, film and web design as much as literature, and attempt to take strands of each and weave them into something entirely new.

Dreaming Methods is however experimental. Our plan is to continue to attempt to produce challenging hybrid fiction projects that push the boundaries of digital writing.
