Revision Journal #45

prologue

What started as a prologue became a prelude, then a prologue again. Due to its contents, we’ve reached the conclusion that prologue is the definitive term.

That’s the kind of updates you get from people obsessed with semantics.

  1. What, exactly, is the difference?

      I believe that a Prelude is pure music before the curtain opens. Prologue is event(s) before the story picks up.

      For a classic example, Frozen starts with a snowy chant; Prelude. It then goes to Frozen Heart; Prologue. We then move to Anna and Elsa at ages 5 and 8, respectfully; ‘Act 1 Scene 1’.

      For a Majora’s Mask game example, Prelude is Title Screen, Chasing Skull Kid is Prologue, and emerging from the Clock Tower is ‘Act 1’.
