Video Game Maker Raising Funds for Interactive Book

Video game maker Joe Booth has raised more than $11,700 on Kickstarter for their iOS book app. The funds will be used the cover the costs to commission an illustrator and finish developing the interactive book. We’ve embedded a video about the project above–what do you think?

Here’s more about the project: “Vidya Books leverages the best elements of Choose Your Own Adventure storytelling, classic adventure games, traditional novels, and modern action games to create something fresh and magical…You interact with the words as they appear — your interaction directs the main character.  You swipe the screen, touch words, and manipulate the device — and that moves the story forward!”

Welcome to our Kickstarter Publishing Project of the Week, a feature exploring how authors and publishers are using the fundraising site to raise money for book projects. If you want to start your own project, check out How To Use Kickstarter to Fund Your Publishing Project.
