Versu Offers Interactive Reading Experience With Choose-Your-Own Adventure App

Tired of your favorite stories always ending the same way? That’s what the makers of Versu believe. Their hyper-interactive app is a tech twist on the typical choose-your-own adventure story complete with a monetizing scheme for wannabe storytellers.

To begin, select an episode from Versu’s library or buy one from their store (there’s only three for now). The app allows you to select a character to play and the scripted narrative comes with objectives that must be completed before you move on. Each story is like a game and your character gives you an idiosyncratic perspective on stories that changes each time you play them. Users can unlock various achievements that spices up each narrative.

Versu makers, Linden Labs (creators of Second Life) wants users to benefit from their creations so eventually you’ll be able to create stories you can sell to other users on Versu’s platform.
