Two weeks since PAX already? Seems like only yesterday when we were stepping into the main hall of the Convention Centre bleary-eyed and jet-lagged, with a hundred printed Sorcery! maps, and a build with a 3D version of the same, ready to let some journalists play.
Nerve-wracking stuff: our first big games convention – arguably our first game, unless you count Poems By Heart – but also the first time anyone outside of inkle had played the game. Would they get it? Would they like it? Would they get destroyed by the first Bandit and never see the Hills?
Today we get to finally announce our latest project, created in partnership with Edmund Pevensey in America: Seven Poets and the Assassin’s Secret, a real-time, serialised adventure story for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
Check out the Seven Poets trailer video here.
With the Future Voices competition in full swing, we thought it might help those new to writing interactive stories and trying out inklewriter for the first time to give a quick shopping list of ways you can use interactivity in a story to powerful effect.
None of these ideas are new, and not all of them will suit every project. But maybe some will tickle your imagination! So without further ado, let the countdown commence!
