Adventure is a type of genre that features a protagonist in a new or exotic location, who is trying to solve a quest. Adventure films can be set in the real world, but often have imaginative elements as part of the narrative. Indiana Jones, a popular film franchise, is an example of the adventure genre. Indiana Jones is an archeologist who embarks on a series of quests in remote locations, often trying to solve clues quicker than the villains. Indiana Jones often has to travel to new and exciting places that no-one has ever been to before, which is very adventurous of him.

What is the adventure genre?

The adventure genre typically features the protagonist going into a journey either personally or geographically. Often protagonists have a mission and are forced to face many obstacles along the way. The adventure genre is generally paired with the action genre since the protagonist’s journeys involve a lot of action. The adventure genre can be combined with almost any other genre like romance or drama.

What are common characteristics of an adventure story?

Common characteristics of an adventure story include fast-paced plot lines, brave protagonists in dangerous situations, and a specific period of time to accomplish a goal or mission. Sometimes adventure stories have dark moods because of what the protagonist has to face and evil enemies that readers or viewers want the protagonist to beat. Adventure stories are also often set in unusual locations.

What is a Choose Your Own Adventure story?

A choose your own adventure story is a series of children’s gamebooks in which each story is written from a second-person point of view. The reader takes on the role of the protagonist and makes choices that determine actions of the main character as well as the outcome of the story. The concept was created by Edward Packard. The Choose Your Own Adventure stories were created for 7 to 14-year old children.
