Today we announce the launch of our first collaborative interactive book, OZ. Available now exclusively for the iPad, OZ is a remarkable re-working of the original book The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum, telling the story in a way never experienced before.
OZ features the original illustrations of W.W. Denslow digitally remastered and brought to life with stunning effect from our design team. Children and adults alike can immerse themselves in the adventures of Dorothy and her friends, with over 20 interactive and dynamic pages. The clever use of the physics engine combined with the tilt and touch features of the iPad let you take part in the story. A story which has been carefully abridged to stay true to the original, resulting in a truly immersive app.
This classic story has been reproduced for film and theatre with great success and we wanted to bring the same level of excitement to reading the book. Only this time, with OZ and the iPad, you can play and interact with the characters like never before.
4.5 / 5 Stars – “…it makes me feel like I’m reading a magical book from a library that existed long ago.”
“…The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, in an inviting, and more importantly, enjoyable, way.”
4.5 / 5 Stars – “…this book comes alive and makes it’s an intriguing read for both kids and adults alike.”
When Boluga, a company we have worked with closely before approached us to collaborate on this project we jumped at the chance of turning a 110 year old book into a beautifully enhanced interactive iPad app. The stunning original illustrations have been remastered and brought to life with colour and animation. Not only is this app an example of what can be achieved using modern technology and a little imagination – it’s a magical and immersive read for parents and children of all ages.
OZ – the interactive book for the iPad is available now in Apple’s App Store for $6.99. Visit now and enjoy a true classic.
