Voyage of the Dawn Star is the premier release in Wivern Digital's Short Trips of Terror series - a compendium of short and horrific tales full of death that's just perfect for putting you in the right mood on the ride to work or school.
The opening tale in this unhappy series recounts the unfortunate fate of the Dawn Star. Based on a true story, the dutch-built fishing vessel vanished in the South Seas during a storm in the early 1960s, never to be seen again. The classic tale of horror is further enhanced with the artwork of Argentinian artist Cris Báez - winner of Wivern Digital's first CR8ing competition.
With its unique vertical scrolling functionality, the Voyage of the Dawn Star app also features 'Voyager Facts' hidden beneath the linear tale, allowing readers to occasionally scroll down to discover more info about the scientific, nautical and natural elements mentioned in the plot.
