This work explores the need for a comprehensive understanding of best practices in mixed reality storytelling authoring tools. With the rapid development and increasing adoption of mixed reality tech- nologies, there is a growing demand for effective tools that enable the creation of compelling and immersive narratives. To address this need, a literature review was conducted that encompassed three key areas: Games, Interactive Digital Narratives (IDN), and eXtended Reality Installations (XRIs). By synthesizing the consensus on best practices from these diverse domains, this paper aims to provide valuable insights into the design and development of mixed real- ity storytelling authoring tools. The review of literature revealed a range of perspectives and approaches in each domain. Based on this analysis, a survey of existing mixed reality storytelling authoring tools, highlighting their strengths, weaknesses, and notable features is presented. By examining the principles that underlie these tools, key design considerations for creating effective authoring tools was established. The findings contribute to the development of a holistic framework for designing mixed reality storytelling authoring tools that take into account the unique affordances and challenges of this emerging medium. By synthesizing best practices from multiple disciplines, this paper provides a valuable resource for researchers and practitioners interested in exploring and advancing the field of authoring tools for mixed reality.
