Moving Tales releases free browser-based interactive story experiment


Moving Tales has released "Elly's Lost & Found Sounds" as a free browser based interactive story for Macs and PCs.

Written and illustrated by best selling author Jacqueline O Rogers, like its iBook precedent, "Elly Online" brings together an "enchanting story, original sounds, music, animation, and magical interactivity," according to the folks at Moving Tales. Through this test of free and open distribution, Moving Tales is exploring the meaning and value of stories in today's hyper-connected and abundant content world and what role creators like Moving Tales play in it.

Creating a browser based interactive story experience was a new challenge for the company, who are renowned for their iOS Apps and Ebooks, including the critically acclaimed and best selling "The Pedlar Lady of Gushing Cross".

"Elly is a wonderfully compelling character, full of curiosity and insight. We're bringing Elly to life on-line as a completely accessible interactive experience, no middle men," says Matthew Talbot-Kelly, Moving Tales' Executive Producer and Creative Director. "It's an experiment in design, coding and distribution -- easy to experience and easy to share. We wanted to make Elly's explorations of the sounds around us available with as little friction as possible. All you need is a PC or Mac."

"Elly Online" is free. Anyone interested can visit www.moving-tales.com/ellyonline and, in one click, start enjoying the title. "Elly's Lost & Found Sounds" is also available to go, as an interactive ebook for the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, through Apple's iBookstore.
