Electric Crow Games, LLC today is pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of Billy Bolts: My Fathers Keeper 1.0, their first interactive story book now available for the iPad through Apple's App Store and for Android through Google Play. Billy Bolts MFK contains 27 pages of interactive story driven adventure that includes the ability to build one of two variations of robots, mini games and the like. The reader can interact with the book to trigger various effects and animations. Some of these animations are just for fun while others have an effect on the story itself.
The story of Billy Bolts: MFK is actually based on real life events of its creator, Jason Appleton and contains messages related to dealing with bullies, growing up without a father and forgiveness. "Creating Billy Bolts was an emotional ride, I have to admit. Some of the lines in the book were things my father and I said to each other the first time we met and it still brings tears to my eyes thinking of that day." explains Appleton. "This book is my release of the tension caused by his absence throughout the first 21 years of my life and my way of forgiving him for his past. My hope is that children who read this book pick up on the messages within and find at least some peace in the midst of the various forms of frustration and uncertainty caused by growing up without a parent."
Billy Bolts: My Fathers Keeper 1.0 is $2.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Books category. It is also available for Android on Google Play. Please visit Billy Bolts MFK online for a complete press kit containing a variety of assets for use in reviews or spotlights of the book. Electric Crow Games, LLC is currently developing a Massively Multiplayer Online Game preparing to launch its Alpha test phase in March, 2014.
