This paper presents the authoring tool Cyranus, which implements novel authoring methods for highly interactive edutainment applications. Both concluded work and ongoing and future issues are presented. Among the concluded work, a framework is described that integrates a hierarchic transition network with non-graph based methods, in particular with a rule-based system. This facilitates the authoring process considerably, and enhances the power to control the logic of an application.
