Well, almost exactly six months after I got my iPhone, I’m happy to announce that Ruben & Lullaby, my first game for the iPhone and iPod touch, is now available on the App Store. Ruben & Lullaby is the first of a planned series of “opertoons"--stories you play like musical instruments--and I’m very excited about how this project has turned out. Many thanks to Ezra Claytan Daniels, who did the wonderful illustrations for the project and has been a great collaborator along the way. Thanks also to beta testers George Loyer, Mitchell Whitelaw, and Greg J. Smith for invaluable feedback.
Wanted to report that all of the completed episodes of Chroma are now available on YouTube thanks to the efforts of Kyle Taylor, who’s been a fan and supporter of the project for years. Even though interaction is obviously a major component of the piece, I’ve gotten a number of requests over the years for straight video versions of the chapters to be exhibited at various events, and have been happy to oblige. If you’re not in an interactive mood, don’t want to install Shockwave, or just want a quick taste of the piece, check out the Chroma playlist Kyle has put together--and be sure to click the “High Quality” link for the best experience. Thanks Kyle!
