The Little Mermaid - coming soon!

Game Collage is excited to announce a brand new iPad title coming soon to the App Store - The Little Mermaid and Other Stories by H. C. Andersen.

Experience an interactive adventure that pushes the frontier of what literature can be - children and adults love it!

This magical book brings to life three of Hans Christian Andersen’s timeless classics.

• SWIM through the bottomless ocean with The Little Mermaid
• TRAVEL to distant kingdoms in Emperor’s New Clothes
• BEFRIEND a Happy Family celebrating life under a large burdock leaf

Enchant children and adults alike with stories that spill out of their pages. The book features close to 40 ANIMATED or INTERACTIVE elements across 65 beautifully ILLUSTRATED pages.

• SHOOT fireworks from an ancient ship
• CHASE crawling bugs across a page
• DREAM among enchanting fireflies
• LIGHT celebration lanterns

A full physics engine makes the pictures move with how you hold the book! Tastefully orchestrated sounds immerse you even deeper into the magical world. These stories will make you want to read them over and over again.

My son loves the iPad version of Alice in Wonderland, so I will definitely be picking this up.

This looks really good - is there a target release date for the book ? What will be the price point ? I'm really impressed with your trailers, and I can't wait to see the app itself. Looks like you did a wonderful job !

Thanks for your kind words, @quebecotr!
The release is scheduled for this Friday, June 25th and the app will retail for $8.99. I'll be posting a new thread under iPad games on Friday morning with some promo codes. You've been warned...

Warning received, and I hope, heeded on Friday ! It's always hard to grab codes unless you're there just at the right time, and since so many people grab codes without bothering to indicate which one they used, you never know which one will still be available.

In any case, I will certainly be on the lookout for it - thanks in advance for being generous and sharing a few codes ! I am really looking forward to checking out your book - seems to me this kind of app might just be one of the best ways to get people to read again. Print ins't dead after all; it's just become interactive !

Good luck on the launch !
