On Special #1 IPAD APP OF THE WEEK NOMINEE - PUBLISHING INNOVATION AWARD 2010
Charles Dickens’ classic holiday story is given a revolutionary ‘steampunk’ look by PadWorx Digital Media Inc, the company that created the groundbreaking App of the Week ‘Dracula: The Official Stoker Family Edition.’
You will not only witness Ebenezer Scrooge’s personal transformation through 130 pages of lovingly abridged text, but for the first time you will become part of the story through breathtaking and interactively immersive graphics, music, and sound.
Whether you’re traveling through time and space with Scrooge and the spirits of Christmases Past, Present, and Future, powering up and manipulating an assortment of wonderful steam powered devices, or just marvelling at each chapter’s unique page-turning contraptions, ‘A Christmas Carol’s’ steampunk-style animation, illustrations, original score, sound effects, and hidden Easter eggs of bonus content will draw you into the story’s unforgettable lessons of darkness, despair, joy and life.
The design and execution of PadWorx’s ‘A Christmas Carol’ is so innovative that it has been directly endorsed by the Dickens family. That’s high praise, indeed! And in keeping with the holiday spirit, a portion of all sales will be donated to charities around the world.
