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.
