With more and more ways to enjoy your favourite comics digitally, it was only a matter of time before a more cinematic viewing experience arrived.
Developed by London-based feature film company, Eden Films, and its animation/game division, Codec Studios, Redemption: The Challenge (opens in new tab) is pitched as a next generation motion comic.
Without the confinements of the traditional comic format (panels, speech bubbles, etc) Eden has created a 2D animation with high quality parallaxing graphics, narration and a full orchestra score.
The comic tells the story of fallen angel, Elizabeth Grey, who, after escaping hell is attemping to find her way back to heaven. Written by David Burns, the artwork is provided by Ralph Mohr (ex head of Concept Design for Disney Games) and sound design by Nathan McCree (composer of the Tomb Raider score).
Redemption: The Challenge incorporates DAz technology to make it a cross over genre of entertainment and the world's first interactive motion comic.
The viewer will be able to interact with the comic, becoming a player in the world of Redemption, touch the screen and reveal assets such as background info videos and find hidden angel feathers – uniting the parallel worlds of gaming and comic reading.
Redemption is now available for PC and Mac (with iPad edition to follow) for £2.49.
