What inspired Plotypus?

There are already some excellent storytelling games. While they are fun to play, they tend to yield messy plots. We wanted to create a game that was both fun and that generated a great plot. While building the game, we drew from The Hero with a Thousand Faces, Save the Cat, and Story.
