If you remember the Choose Your Own Adventure books you might be interested in a new Kickstarter project which has launched this week that is looking to bring a series of interactive cartoon apps based on Choose Your Own Adventure books to Apple’s iPad tablet device called Choose Toons.
“Remember when you were little and you read a book and if you didn’t like a character or the plot, or even the ending, you were stuck? And then one day you came across a book starring YOU that let you make choices until you reached a thrilling albeit grisly “The End” where you died but you got to go back and start again? And remember how those books, from a series called CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE, changed your life forever?
We think it’s time for a Choose Your Own Adventure cartoon app. We’re calling them Choose ‘Toons. Choose ‘Toons are interactive cartoons based on the best-selling titles of Choose Your Own Adventure books for younger readers. They are aimed at children ages 5-7. Our first episode is based on the title Your Very Own Robot, where YOU put together a robot named Gus out of discarded parts from your parents’ robot lab. Gus gets you into a lot of trouble. This first episode has 20 story branches with 11 possible endings, with more than 30 minutes total of animation.”
The Choose Toons project is currently over on the Kickstarter website looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to production. So if you think Choose Toons is something you could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help Choose Toons become a reality.
