Narrative theories are often employed to provide coherence to collections of resources as well as in the creation of models of interactive drama. Scene-Driver is an interactive narrative system which combines these two approaches in the form of a game. The game reuses scenes from a children's animated television series called Tiny Planets. A child interacts with a Scene-Driver narrative by selecting "domino-like" tiles, the right-hand side of which dictates certain properties of the next scene to be played. Narrative coherence is maintained by ensuring that a certain ordering of scenes is adhered to, regardless of a child's choice of tile, e.g. a conflict resolution cannot be shown prior to that conflict being introduced. This ordering is based on narrative principles and analysis of the 65 episodes of Tiny Planets.
