It’s a very exciting day in the Crow’s Nest. After a lot of work and much waiting, our new app, Little Red Riding Hood, is finally on sale. You can find it on the App Store here for an introductory price of $4.99/ £2.99, and watch a trailer above.
I feel pretty happy saying that this is the best app we’ve ever made. It’s an entirely new take on the fairytale classic – for the very first time, you can create the story of Little Red Riding Hood yourself.
You can choose which paths Little Red Riding Hood takes through the forest to get to her grandma’s house – and the decisions you make will not only affect what options are available to you later on, but also the eventual outcome of the story: how will you defeat the Big Bad Wolf?
Watch the Big Bad Wolf’s version of the story:
We’ve never made an app with such a non-linear narrative – or one which has been built with so much interactivity in mind. There are nine unique mini-games throughout the app, taking advantage of tons of brilliant iPad and iPhone features – you can see yourself on screen using the front facing camera, blow into the microphone to sound a whistle, tip the screen to pour honey into a jar, and drag, swipe, tap and zoom to take part in the story and explore more of every scene. And don’t worry – if you get lost, there’s a map to help you find your way…
Like our other fairytale apps, Little Red Riding Hood features brand new animation, voicework, original music, text highlighting for early readers, and stunning artwork by Ed Bryan:
