To improve the presentation as a whole, I’ve made a few changes. First, I changed the slides’ background photos, swapping out the original photos for neutral monochrome ones. By making this adjustment, the backdrop color of each slide will match the text color, enhancing readability. I increased the selection of choices in the scenarios that may be played. My goal in extending these choices was to provide users with more options and boost their interaction with the information. To help readers better understand the context and fully immerse themselves in the experience, I added expressions and provided more in-depth descriptions of the scenarios.  

To provide more depth and clarity, I would broaden the scenarios and options for future improvement. The interactive parts would be more engaging if the consequences of each choice were all leading to deeper, more invasive choices. A straightforward decision-making process can be made into an interesting narrative journey by adding more interactive details. This method improves the user experience by allowing users to explore various outcomes and comprehend the intricate details of each scenario, in addition to making the material more intriguing. Personal interaction-themed scenarios require in-depth analysis and grasp of the feeling, the reaction, the facial expression, the body language, and many other factors that affect people’s judgment of how the situation played out. People’s first impression of me was sometimes inferred as I’m snobby or think too highly of myself when I’m not as expressive in conversations with strangers vs. people I’ve known for a while. They think that I treat them differently than the people I’m close with due to some kind of entitled or unwelcoming reason. On the other hand, I might not have had the best day because I am shy, I was daydreaming, or for any other reason. Since they hold one or two perceptions, it’s difficult for most people to hold more. That’s what I struggled with in my game as well. 


I’ve discovered through this process that stories have more to them than just positive and negative aspects. Every story has a variety of angles and interpretations. In general, we come across a greater variety of viewpoints the more people we engage with. Our awareness and comprehension of the world around us are enhanced by our interaction with others’ range of opinions. It makes us more patient and expands our horizons, which increases our empathy and knowledge. By embracing these many viewpoints, we may produce more inclusive and thorough narratives that appeal to a larger range of people. For example, one of my best friends in high school and I have recently reconnected after a few years since our graduation. We didn’t close our chapter on the best terms, and she approached me to discuss it after a while. I realized that while discussing the events that occurred between us, we both had a perception of each other that was not true. To elaborate, I held a certain understanding of how she felt about me in one of the situations where, from her side, it was a completely different feeling from what I thought she felt. In my opinion, communication is important, but being open-hearted while communicating is more important as sometimes people empathize with each other and have patience towards others’ actions.
