Spinlight Studio gives bedtime stories a whole new spin.
Champaign, Illinois, August 7, 2012 — Spinlight Studio is at it again, releasing Pixel and Parker — their seventh title and first foray into children’s books. But this time, they’re not just releasing another app, they’re changing the way stories are told.
“A lot of people are digitizing books,” says Matt Hutton, partner + creative director of Spinlight. “That’s been done. For us, the challenge is finding new ways to tell a story that make the most of the modern touchscreen devices.” With Pixel and Parker, they’ve shared one vision of what that could look like, using a game board spinner to advance the story. And giving bedtime stories a whole new twist.
The first adventure, aptly called a Spintale, follows the adventure of a young boy searching for his lost cat. With every spin, there’s a different activity that moves the action forward. And while there are no pages to turn, there’s plenty to discover, from musical cattails, to a store window filled with animated toys, to presents that let the reader change the look of the character. Throw in whimsical narration and beautiful illustrations, and you’ve got a wonderful bedtime adventure that’s never the same story twice.
