In this article, we discuss the notion of context from the perspective of narrative articulation or authorial trajectories in digital games. We conduct a survey of narrative contextual considerations in digital games and investigate the possibilities for Non-Player-Characters (NPCs) to react to players accordingly, particularly with respect to narrative situations, in both a consistent and coherent fashion. After which, we then discuss the foundations of a narrative context-based model for NPCs for digital games and interactive digital narratives (IDN).
