Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Goes Interactive Digital on Your iPad

A funny thing happened in 2009. People were talking about zombies, and not just us – but people who NEVER talk about zombies. Because 2009 was the year Jane Austen’s classic work Pride and Prejudice was infested with the undead.

Now, with a movie due out in 2012, PadWorx Digital Media has announced it is developing an interactive book/app for Seth Grahame-Smith’s literary mash-up Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

Jeffrey Alan Schechter, Creative Director and President of PadWorx Digital Media, had this to say about the project: “We’ve been very fortunate to work on some extremely cool projects, but it doesn’t get any cooler than working with Quirk Books on such an iconic title.”

PadWorx is the leading developer of interactive and immersive eBooks for tablets and has award-winning releases of Dracula: The Official Stoker Family Edition and A Christmas Carol under its belt to assure readers they know what they are doing.

It was this success that attracted the attention of David Borgenicht, President of Quirk Books (publisher of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. In his mind there was no question about going with PadWorx: “We were looking for a company that shared our creative vision to tackle our first highly interactive e-book, and it was clear from Dracula: The Official Stoker Family Edition that PadWorx could be our creative equals. In the world of interactive book developers, PadWorx is definitely at the top of the game.”

You can check out more trailers and find direct links to the app store for all of their interactive books at padworxdigital.com.

Watch a City Come Together and a Monster Created in These Videos From The Sinking City

Published

on

I’ve been keeping a very close eye on Frogwares’ The Sinking City, which is a 3rd person horror adventure that takes place in a world that is as inspired by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes as it is by H.P. Lovecraft and his eldritch terrors. While still early in development, the team is beginning to share some pretty incredible things out of their offices (like these creepy statues) to keep the public up-to-date as well as show them just how much work goes into creating something so expansive and fascinating.

Today, I want to bring you a taste of the world that Frogwares is building through two videos. The first shows the process by which they created the actual city that the game takes place in. Obviously trying to hand create each and every building is a tedious process at best, nigh-well impossible task at its most realistic. Rather than attempt such a monumental undertaking, the team created a program that will build the city based on criteria that they set forth. It’s a very clever solution to a very real problem and the end result still feels like their personal touch is all over it.

The second video is a 3D time lapse of a monster as it goes from rough shape to a highly detailed, grotesquely designed monstrosity that is nothing short of nightmarish. It’s a chance to see how an artist creates something phenomenal from something so simple, each step adding a new layer of sickening, yet fascinating, macabre horror.

Jim Carrey and The Grinch Go Beyond Whoville

Published

on

Dr. Suess’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas is a regular holiday staple in many households, including my own. The cartoon is just brilliant; and truth be told, the live action film captured a great deal of the magic infused within the original tale due in no small part to an electric and manic portrayal of the title character by Jim Carrey.

A new video has surfaced courtesy of Nerdist that’s a joyous play on the Netflix flick Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond – Featuring a Very Special, Contractually Obligated Mention of Tony Clifton. Check it out below. It’s SO worth your time.
