Several weeks ago we told you about the launch of the Level 26 iPhone app and digi-novel, and today we have an exclusive premiere of a “cyber bridge” (basically, a video clip) from the app, which plays out a few of the chapters of the digi-novel. This particular cyber bridge stars genre vet Michael Ironside and 24‘s Glenn Morshower.
Level 26: Dark Origins (review here) takes full advantage of the revolutionary iPhone and iTunes Extras platforms to create a cinematic experience that flows naturally between chapters. Level 26: Dark Origins, the first-ever digi-novel, is now available from the App Store, iTunes Extras, and in print.
The first in a trilogy, Level 26: Dark Origins, was written by CSI creator Anthony E. Zuiker, with Duane Swierczynski, and tells the gripping tale of a forensic proof serial killer so terrifying that his very existence has been concealed from the public. Following every 20 pages of prose, readers are able to watch a video on iTunes Extras, iPhone, or iPod touch that combines beautiful design with expanded visual features to bring the story to life, exactly where the book leaves off. The videos feature well-known Hollywood actors, crime scene documents, and special interactive features.
The Level 26: Dark Origins app is available for $12.99 from the App Store on iPhone and iPod touch or via iTunes. The Level 26: Dark Origins iTunes Extras are available on the iTunes Store for $12.99. If it all sounds a little confusing, revisit our original story here, which contains two videos by Anthony Zuiker that introduce both the iPhone app and the iTunes Extras app.
