"Once upon a time there came along an app that changed the world of storytelling..." Canadian Family
Also available for the iPad with identical functionality, “The Pedlar Lady of Gushing Cross” is a 3D animated interactive storytelling app featuring film-calibre, sophisticated 3D animated illustrations and text, original music, professional voiceover in English, Spanish and French, and evocative filmic sound effects.
The story, inspired by the age-old tale of a man who becomes rich through a dream, describes the journey of a poor pedlar woman who, guided by the shifting line between the real and the unreal, discovers a surprising and wonderful treasure.
The app, the first in Moving Tales’ “Classic World Tales” series, is a state-of-the-art digital ‘mash-up’ of methods from the worlds of ebook publishing, graphic novels, film and interactive media.
“The Pedlar Lady” also features randomly selected alternate views, sound effects and extras, so that no two viewings are alike. It offers sophisticated and dynamic typography, poetic language, and optional Spanish and French that allows viewers to listen to and see the story in Spanish, French and English, and even alternate between the three as the story is being experienced.
With “The Pedlar Lady”, Moving Tales establishes a truly original and engaging new world of storytelling.
