About the Institute
Curiouser llc is an organization dedicated to researching the structure and psychology of storytelling in all its forms through interdisciplinary inquiry and hands-on experimentation. We are discovering what stories mean to people, how they are constructed, how they change from one medium to another, and the psychological drives that lead us to engage with fiction both as participants and creators.
We work with a wide array of professionals in diverse fields and media. Professional game designers, authors, producers, psychologists, academics, fans, and many others are part of our team. By discovering the real-world psychological basis of stories in all forms we hope to be able to inform and instruct those participating in and creating new stories and story formats.
