[prMac.com] Vancouver (BC) Canada - Moving Tales, the producers of the best-selling 3D animated storybook app, The Pedlar Lady of Gushing Cross, have released their second story in the Classic World Tale series, The Unwanted Guest for the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.
"The Unwanted Guest is created to the same high standards, by the same creative team and featuring the same feature set as our beloved Pedlar Lady App. We are excited to be sharing it with the world." said Moving Tales' founder Matthew Talbot-Kelly.
Following up on their innovative and best selling Pedlar Lady of Gushing Cross app, The Unwanted Guest is an adaptation of a traditional Jewish folk tale, where a poor old man, down on his luck and living in a tumbledown house, is visited by an unwelcome house guest. The story tells of the old man's attempt to rid himself of his surprising visitor once and for all.
The Unwanted Guest features film-caliber, sophisticated 3D animation, evocative text, original music and evocative filmic sound effects. The App's dynamic typographic layouts can be animated using the device accelerometer, incorporate randomly selected alternate perspectives to ensure no two viewings are alike, use Cover Flow-like navigation and include compelling, poetic voice-over narratives and text in English, Spanish and French. The user can record their own voice reading the story to be played back with the sound effects and music.
"Our apps are genre breaking, rich in content, and lovingly put together to the highest possible standards. They are fantastic value for money - and wonderful examples of the burgeoning Slow App Movement." said Matthew Talbot-Kelly.
