Sequel Stories Chat Bot Walkthrough Review

May 3, 2016 - Sequel Stories Messenger Chat Bot (http://m.me/storiesonsequel) is the first few entertainment chat bots available on the Facebook Messenger Platform at launch. Created by OnSequel bot platform for messenger to demonstrate their platform, Sequel Stories Chat Bot is a rich content interactive story where you choose your own story adventures.

We did a through review of the bot to see how usable it was and what our thoughts on it was. Below is a sample walkthrough of our experience:


Step 1: Greetings from Sequel Stories

This is the initial welcome greeting message. "Paige" is the host / narrator of this chat bot, as of this review, it support mostly actionable button taps and no text entry.


Step 2: Pick a Story

At the start of every story, we had the option to pick from a Call to Action (CTA) scrollable list of stories. At the time of this review, they had the following stories: 1) "Lone Peak: find your true love", 2) "Christy: murder she wrote", 3) "Enchanted: witches and wolves", and 4) "Miss Match: romcom fun". To pick the story, just tap the "Choose" button.


Step 3: Lone Peak - Find Your True Love

We decided to pick "Lone Peak - Find Your True Love" story. The story started out as most stories do with introduction of the character and the location / setting.


Step 4: Enhance Story with Imagery

To access the help, we typed in "Help" and got the following options: 1) "Stop this story", 2) "Contact Us", and 3) "Continue Story". We tapped "Contact Us" and got a support email address.


Step 8: Text Entry Not Supported

Conclusion

In conclusion, Sequel Stories Chat Bot is built to showcase the OnSequel bot platform for messenger. We enjoyed the rich media to enhance the stories, but the lack of an AI natural language chat with the characters left us kind of disappointed. We wished we were able to ask questions with the character to dig deeper into the characters. From how it is now, it is really just a bunch of text and media strung along in a sequential order (maybe that is why they named it "sequel" stories). Maybe they will update it later to better engage the users - at least we hope so cause it is a great start.
