[prMac.com] Durham, North Carolina - Bringing an enjoyable story and game experience, and giving that "old school" text adventure feel - that is the goal of the Narratavius app, now available for free in the App Store. Created by Michael Ham of Baked Ham Games, the app tries to recreate the fun and feel of text-based adventures from the early days of computing.

"I got the idea when I heard someone say, 'You know what I'd like to see? Something like 'Zork' for the iPhone.' "said Ham.

The Narratavius app is actually an application where different stories or adventures from any number of independent authors and genres can be downloaded and played. From there, the user can engage in an unlimited variety of quests, very much in the style of a choose-your-own-adventure.

"Narratavius is our most ambitious project to date." Said Ham. "It combines the efforts of about a dozen content authors, a dedicated graphic designer, and our main programmer. We are very excited for our authors to be able to reach the 250 million iOS device owners already around the world, as well as the hundreds of millions that analysts expect to become owners of these devices in 2012."

Funding for the app was done via a Kickstarter campaign, which allows for an average person to contribute funds to the effort in return for various benefits once the project is complete. The method has become extremely popular over the past year, funding a wide variety of projects.

"The idea was extremely well received. Users ended up donating 173% of our funding goals."

Ham has a number of stories ready for download upon release including Castle Wynd, a gritty fantasy adventure, Bayou Lights, a detective story set in the Louisiana Bayou, and Wheels Within: A fast-paced action story in a post-apocalyptic future. Also, there will be a contest to celebrate the release of the app. You can find more info about this at the contest website.
