Storypile is a unique spin on an old concept called "Exquisite Corpse" (also known as exquisite cadaver) in which words or images are collectively assembled by a number of participants. The concept was created by Surrealists in the 1920's and went on to spin off an old parlour game called Consequences.
In Consequences, a phrase or word is written on a piece of paper, then folded and passed to the next player. The current writer is unaware of the previous words, taking the story in strange directions.
Storypile has taken the concept and given it a 21st century twist. Instead of preventing users from seeing previous sections, Storypile allows each writer to view the entire developing story. Users can write their own section and share the story with their friends via social networking sites, such like Facebook and Twitter. Their friends can then write a section and the story will evolve in new and exciting ways.
We think our method allows a richer story telling experience, involving endless creativity through the use of online collaboration.
