Producing systems for entertainment computing such as mobile augmented reality applications with interactive digital storytelling components is a complex and interdisciplinary task. It is producing a new form of media. Emerging new technologies will add to the complexity of authoring desired systems in the future, with the sort of conceptualizing and producing entertaining content suitable for those experiences. Today no publicly available authoring tool exists for producing such systems, but each is made from scratch by programmers and content authors from different fields. Providing authoring concepts and tools for an adjustable system allowing the use of various technologies can shift effort from developing entertaining applications towards producing entertaining content and therefore content quality and entertainment may rise.
