Previous interactive digital storytelling and gaming environments rarely offer users a simple way to create their own intelligent characters with credible personalities. SketchCAST tries to provides a simple sketch-based interface for our users to create credible and intelligent characters. We have two research focus in this project. The first one is to derive a working model for retrieving both motion data and behavioral traits based on the appearance of the character and the way the character is drawn. In addition, we also want to experiment different interactive storytelling strategies with which our characters can trigger different stories. The stories will vary based on characters' physical capability and personality traits. Nevertheless, it should still converge to limited numbers of predefined endings (goals) when directed by these strategies. SketchCAST
