To celebrate the launch of our inklewriter for Kindle service, we’re happy to announce a short new inkle release.
The Intercept, by Jon Ingold
Bletchley Park, 1942. A component from the Bombe machine, used to decode intercepted German messages, has gone missing. One of the cryptographers is waiting to be interviewed, under direst suspicion. Is he stupid enough to have attempted treason? Or is he clever enough to get away?

The Intercept is of short-story length and will take about twenty minutes to read fully.
We’ve pulled the cloth back on our first project: Frankenstein, written by best-selling authors Jamie Thomson and and Dave Morris, and published in association with Profile Books.
With Frankenstein we’re hoping to prove the possibilities of interactive literature. No, it isn’t a game – you don’t need to learn any rules, there are no dice, no fighting and for goodness sake, no dragons. This is Frankenstein as Mary Shelley wrote it — but with more besides.
Frankenstein lets the player go in and rewrite the classic novel, immersing the player in the world of the novel – the turbulence of a time steeped in revolution and the dawning of a new scientific age. Frankenstein represents a new kind of story-telling: interactive fiction, made in a way that everyone can enjoy, for the first time.
We’re really proud to be working with such superb writers for our first project, and with a major publisher like Profile. Frankenstein is being developed using our unique “inklebook” format, and hopefully we’ll be bringing a lot more stories to life after this one. So watch this space!
Frankenstein will be coming alive, for iPhone and iPad, in April.
