Choose Your Own Adventure iPad App Retells Frankenstein

"Frankenstein, by Dave Morris, is a new kind of interactive novel, that places you right there, in Frankenstein's lab, by his side as he turns the winch and brings the spark of life to bear on his creation... Following and adapting Mary Shelley's original text, Frankenstein is a new reading experience designed from the ground up for mobile devices.

Yes. I succeeded in discovering the cause of generation and life. More than that: I am myself capable of bestowing animation upon lifeless matter. Here are my lodgings... Come up, and I will show you.

This unique literary app places you in conversation with Frankenstein himself as his story unfolds. He will be your guide, and you his advisor (sic). Console, counsel or condemn him: the choice is yours.

Written by best–selling author Dave Morris, designed and developed for iOS by inkle and published by award–winning publisher, Profile Books, Frankenstein is a whole new way of experiencing Mary Shelley's classic tale of terror, tragedy and revenge."

Free HTML5 App for writing 'Choose Your Own Adventure' Books

"Who hasn't, at least for a moment, thought a Choose Your Own Adventure book would be fun to write? It's like making a game out of words. Branching narratives are a surprisingly natural approach to make books interactive. But they're a logistical nightmare. Multiple storylines? Converging plots? How could you keep even a simple story straight? ...

Now, inkle is making their internal compositional software available to the public free as an HTML5 web app called inklewriter. So, without any coding expertise at all, and without much preplanned plot, either, you can simply start typing an interactive novel."

(Mark Wilson, Co.Design)
