This week has been exciting for Glitterbug in terms of releases. We released a brand new app in the interactive fiction genre on both Android and iOS.
The app is called Painted World (PW interactive fiction is the new and official title). PW Interactive Fiction is based on the idea of reading a chapter and choosing from different possible endings.
To make things more interesting, we added our own blend of Glitterbug innovation with our choice of main protagonist. Painted World contains lots of characters but the story is told through the eyes of nine main protagonists. You get to choose one of these and see the story through his or her eyes. Each character has a different story, perhaps set in another time, but each and every character will appear in each others’ stories.
PW Interactive fiction is a text-based story because we want to unleash the power of your imagination without confining it with preconceived notions of what the characters or scenes look like. We also don’t want to crowd the app or interrupt the story with graphics. Story is everything. Story is key.
Our world is fantasy, with unlimited possibilities. The stories all start on earth but the characters can go to heaven, hell, other dimensions, the ghost realm and other times. Anything is possible.
Our characters include humans but also supernatural beings. We absolutely love folklore, so we drink in world wide legends, stories and beliefs and place them in our story.
PW Interactive fiction is available on Android in the Google play store.
PW Interactive fiction is also available on iphone and ipad in the Apple App store.
Finally, we have constructed a companion webpage on this site
Happy quizzing and happy adventuring,
