Jolly and Roger's Misguided Adventures: Quest for the Dragon Tear is now LIVE in the App Store.
This interactive children's ebook for iPad was produced by my company, Unicorn Labs, and co-created with Stephen Silver (Kim Possible, Danny Phantom) and Frank Rocco (Wow Wow Wubbzy, Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness).
It's a wonderfully enjoyable story with beautiful, hand-drawn art, intensely great audio, and a treasure chest full of 70+ fun surprises.
Plus, it showcases the power of our ebook creation engine, Unicorn Engine for eBooks, which enables rapid development of highly interactive ebooks in a fraction of the time and cost of completely custom efforts.
In fact, via the Unicorn Engine, we have already earned both a coveted Kirkus Star on David A. Carter's 'Spot the Dot,' which we produced for Ruckus Media, and achieved a Top 10 revenue grossing eBook on 'Rabbit and Turtle's Amazing Race.'
What is 'Jolly' about? It is a story about dueling pirates, a witch's curse, and a little boy who dreams of becoming a pirate. It is the first chapter in a continuing saga, a true original creation for a rapidly evolving medium.
The book is priced at $4.99, and there is a free Lite version that you can check out to "try before you buy," but to celebrate the launch, we are pricing 'Jolly' at 99 cents for one-week only.
To get a flavor of what Jolly and Roger's Misguided Adventures: Quest for the Dragon Tear is all about, check out this one minute video trailer.
Update: AppAdvice has a decent write-up of the book, and is giving away a few promo codes for a free download of the book. Check it out.
Update #3: Our book is picking up steam, and 'Jolly' is now the #44 Top Paid iPad Book App.
