Early games like the 7th Guest mixed film footage with the interactivity of video games, but the poor quality led to bad results that deterred other games from following their lead. Cloud Chamber, a "massively multiplayer story game" released in 2014, revives the idea of interactive film by centering its action on the players' response to the movies, taking advantage of people's natural inclination to want to discuss what they've seen by developing in-game message boards. Thus Cloud Chamber is able to make videos interactive without the age old flaws of intrusive action menus or pace-breaking player actions.
