Erik Loyer of Opertoon fame just launched his new interactive comic for iOS, Upgrade Soul. I got a chance to preview the piece before release, and needless to say I’m quite impressed.
The presentation is clean, responsive, and engaging. Dare I say one of the first times I’ve seen the accelerometer based camera used in a way to make the narrative deeper. And though I’ve only read 2 chapters so far, the story is turning out to be quite good, reminding me a bit of some plot devices from the Arnie flick, 6th Day.
Eriks has done a lot of pioneering work in the space of interactive comics and narrative, and Upgrade Soul is shaping up to be a great project. Also worthy to note, like Ajax, U S is built in Unity.
I’m looking forward to reading all 16 chapters.
