About a month ago we wrote about a groundbreaking reading app series produced by iClassics Productions that gained a lot of attention and was a huge hit among you readers. It resonated so well that we decided to revisit the topic and offer up another serving of awesomeness. What we found when delving into this mind-bending interactive reading and gaming series is nothing short of awesomeness. Let’s take a closer look at what we found, shall we?
Well, something’s in the air in Barcelona. The Mobile World Congress is just around the corner, and one of Barcelona’s freshest and most artistic tech startups has decided to slash the price of every one of its apps from $4.99 to only $0.99. And no, that’s not a typo – they’ve really decided to slash the price from $4.99 to $0.99.
The iClassics Collection gathers a total of 9 immersive reading apps, so if you do the math, that means you can be the proud owner of the entire collection for under $10!
Such craziness will be short-lived, of course, so this weekend is the perfect opportunity to feast on the artistic, literary and technological delights that iClassics Productions has served up over the past two years.
Although specializing in the horror, terror and macabre genres, the iClassics Collection is, in fact, a diverse and dynamic buffet of literary gems, with a range of the greatest authors from the western literary canon.
H.P. Lovecraft, Edgar Allan Poe, Charles Dickens, Oscar Wilde, Arthur Conan Doyle, Washington Irving, and Jack London are the giants that iClassics Productions decided to take on when they sought to produce the iClassics Collection. And what a fine job they’ve done!
As opposed to many interactive books one can find while perusing the iTunes App Store, the iClassics Collection is truly artistic, with the sublime illustration paying homage to the works of the greats through their beauty and mystery. And it doesn’t stop at illustration, alone. Animation, FX, interactivity and music all come together into a creative melt that will be sure to tickle every fiber of your nerves!
This content is not gimmicky, but rich, mischievous, clever, and creative. Moreover, the illustration is brought to life through subtle but sophisticated animation and interactivity, allowing the reader to become wholly engrossed in the narrative of the story.
One has a sense that the illustration, interactivity, and animation add to, rather than subtracts from, the reading experience, thanks to the seamless way that the typography is stitched into the artfully put together structure of each and every page of the collection.
For frets and frights, the iPoe Collection is a must – and there are three apps to choose from. But, priced at $0.99, you may as well buy all three – you’ll be getting three hours of reading satisfaction for a cost of a cup of coffee. And a cup of coffee is cold in minutes. But be duly warned – there is one thing that’ll turn cold when reading iPoe, and that’s your blood. Yes, spring’s not here quite yet, so savor the remnants of gloom and darkness, and add a sooty sprinkle of mystery and macabre to the final dregs of winter, and buy the entire iPoe Collection! The squawking crows and screams and skulls will not disappoint, that’s for sure.
If you still want horror, but dark romance and macabre is not your cup of tea, then the iClassics Collection also offers up a slice of cosmic terror and dread with its most widely acclaimed app, the iLovecraft Collection. Filled with tentacles, darkness, and gore, the works of H.P. Lovecraft are transformed into an experience that stands somewhere between the cinematic and the literary worlds. It’s an app that’s as hard to categorize as Lovecraft was himself. And, just to drive the point home – it’s $0.99! So cheap for such a fine and gourmet serving of existential dread!
But if the winter season has left you blue and ragged and gloomy, and you’re now longing for dabs of color and bursts of blossom, then keep calm, the iClassics Collection has the perfect app: The iWilde Collection. This ludic, colorful and charming collection of stories celebrates the lesser know fairytales of the Irish genius, Oscar Wilde. Full of allegory and wonder, this dreamlike collection of stories is made all the more magical with iClassics Productions’ always top-quality artwork, animation, and interactivity. A beautiful original soundtrack serves as the sticky icing on the cake of this fantastic, family-friendly immersive reading app.
The iWilde and iPoe Collection are the two extremes of the iClassics Collection, but in between, there’s plenty more to gorge on.
Sharpen your deductive prowess with The Interactive Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, which features A Scandal in Bohemia – no less!
If the change of the seasons has left you ponderous, then the iLondon collection, which gathers the greatest short works of Jack London, will fill the windy cave of ponderousness that howls within you. Replete with dark comedy and tragedy, the iLondon Collection is one of the most diverse apps iClassics Productions has created to date!
But one question remains: why choose? With a price so staggeringly and mind-bendingly low, why settle for but one or two, or three!
Get the entire iClassics Collection for under $10, and find yourself at the forefront of a literary revolution. Show it to your friends, brag about having it, spread the word, and be part of something entirely fresh and innovative. If you do, you’ll doubtlessly be left craving more, and more.
And fear not, word is about town that the iClassics Collection is far from being complete, with many exciting projects and creations stocked up in the pipeline! So keep your cool, get the iClassics Collection, and hold tight for the new awe-inspiring releases iClassics Productions is preparing to bequeath to the world!
All apps will be priced at $0.99 (iTunes & Google Play) for a limited time only, so you must hurry! But if you try one, you’ll be sure to try another, and then another. Thus, be wise, and buy the entire iClassics Collection for a price cheaper than your average book.
The spout of insanity that has fallen upon iClassics Productions will, sadly, come to an end, soon.
