[prMac.com] El Segundo, California - Realtime Audio Adventures, Inc., the developers of Soul Trapper Episode 1 - Ollie Ollie Oxen Free!, has released the app's latest version for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users. The update follows the signing of a 3 book deal between Soul Trapper's scriptwriter, F.J. Lennon and Altria Books, an imprint publisher of Simon & Schuster. The deal is for a trilogy of novels that are based on the original Soul Trapper: Episode 1 interactive audio game app for the iPhone and iPod touch.
Soul Trapper is an interactive audio adventure, a richly produced audio drama reminiscent of vintage radio dramas, seamlessly interwoven with contextual audio-based mini-games. Players must wear headphones, listen to and interact with the story in order to finish the three-plus hour game.
Game players are charged with helping a young techno-occultist hunt down, capture and send ghosts to the afterlife via a contraption called the Soul Trap. The app, which is listed in Edge Magazine's Top 50 iPhone Games of All Time, offers audio-based mini games interwoven with the compelling tale, which call for players to make use of their memory, recognition and stereo perception skills to engage and move the story forward to completion.
While the play is fun, it's the unique audio format and rich storytelling that makes Soul Trapper stand out. Soul Trapper's popularity has climbed steadily since its original release last fall, also capturing the attention Atria Books, who have signed a three book deal with the audio game's script writer, F.J. Lennon.
