Right Medium or Right Experience
A chatbot can also be a game. Some of the most popular games are played in conversational formats, such as Truth or Dare, 20 Questions, Make it or Break it. If a chatbot can conduct a conversation, then the most difficult part is just to think of one and program it out. Before getting creative, one must be aware of the technological limitation as well as the potential of a chatbot conversational design.
For example, Facebook Messenger offers a considerable variety of message types including interactive buttons, quick reply buttons, media template and even carousel. In comparison, WeChat can only support text and images. Instead of using Chatbot as a gaming medium, WeChat encourages developers to use WeChat Miniprogram to create games.
Most platforms which support chatbot usually have more advanced UI/UX like buttons. If you want to make your game more versatile, interactive and interesting, better choose one that supports more than just text and images.
