"Things really come alive in what’s called the 'director’s view': tap an image and the artwork fills the screen, putting the reader in the same place as the characters" -- The Verge
"easy to use with fabulous graphics. The unique use of music to help tell the story truly makes it stand out from your average storytelling app. Its ability to combine art forms with technology is also something entirely new and pretty exciting." -- App Picker
In 2010 a strange object was discovered by a team of archaeologists who brought it to our lab. They would not reveal the location of their find, but asked us to get the device up and running so they could learn more.
Once we did, we knew our jobs had just begun. That’s when the dreams started. We spent the next two years working long nights and lost weekends restoring the artifact, converting its contents to a form that could be widely distributed. We think the whole world should have access to these transmissions.
Form your own conclusions.
This is The Book of Sarth.
