INDIE GAMES STUDIO CELEBRATES LAUNCH
Publisher of Interactive Story Games Promotes Local Authors
Barrie, ON, December 11, 2014 – On December 10, 2014, One More Story Games launched a digital marketplace for authors to publish interactive story games reminiscent of Choose Your Own Adventures. Two stories written by Barrie writers are highlighted at launch: a free-to-play introductory story called ‘Mulcaster Murder’ by Sutherland Booth, and a premium story called ‘APOK: Get in the Wring,’ a two hour playable police thriller written by police officer Mike Walton.
One More Story Games is also launching StoryStylus, a software tool for writers of all ages and writing experience, in late December. With StoryStylus, writers can create simple or complex interactive stories. Imagine high school students creating interactive video game versions of Shakespearean works.
One More Story Games will be celebrating its launch by welcoming the Dean of Technology & Interactive Arts of Georgian College, Dean Kevin Weaver, City Councilors Arif Khan and Rose Romita, and Ruby Young of the Business Enterprise Resource Network to its office on Friday December 12 at 2:30pm at #328 – 80 Bradford Street, Barrie.
