Kickstarter Project Combines Facebook Game With eBooks

Choose-your-own-adventure storytelling meets social networking in Kickstarter project TaleTown, a Facebook game that lets you win Kindle books.

Here is more about the project: “Players in TaleTown actually unlock download-able content for their Kindle or any other e-reader!  That’s right, the free to play Facebook game will be giving out free e-books of short stories, flash fiction, and serial fiction.  It’s long past time for games to start giving out real rewards to players.”

The creators are looking to raise $6,000 for development, marketing and to pay the content creators. You can give as little as $1, but if you give $10 or more, you’ll get a short story for your Kindle. Follow this link to learn more.
