[I/O Event] = A scripted event or object that will cause changes in your M.A.D. Dynamics, their in effecting your interface feedback (e.g.) drink coffee or not drink coffee, take train or take bus.
[MAD Dynamic] = A system that represents your Mood, Anxiety, Depression percentage within the game via the player interface (e.g.) MAD % UP –> Vibrate screen + desaturate screen + increase breathing sound + slow speed.
[Agenda Event] = Actions asked of the player to take, sometimes with a time constraint, their in guiding the player into choke points in-game with an I/O Event. Not to be confused with an [I/O Event] that is the 'result' of said action.
