The Madness of Roland

By Greg Roach


The Madness of Roland is an interactive, multimedia novel which was published both online and on CD-ROM.



How is it interactive?

The user defines their own pathway through the material. Characters from the story confront the reader and ask them questions - the text will change based upon the reader's responses.

Tools used:

Photoshop, Premiere, Supercard

Narrative structure:

The story is told from five points of view simultaneously. The reader may move between the points of view at will.

Interface design:

A series of Tarot card icons represent each character/viewpoint, allowing the reader to move between each character's "leaf" in the story. Hypertext links allow selected moments inside the text to be expanded through the use of graphics, text and video.


The truth lies in the middle.
