Dreaming Methods Open Source Digital Fiction
Chris Joseph and I have been working with Andy Campbell of Dreaming Methods to create an app, and a web app, using the five existing digital stories from ‘Flight Paths’ along with additional material and a brand-new sixth story. The app won’t be ready for a while yet, though in the meantime Andy has been working hard.
To kick off our project, Andy has been experimenting with the first story from ‘Flight Paths’, ‘Yacub in Dubai’; he’s created an open source version of it that is compatible with many devices and platforms, including iPhone, iPad, and Android, as well as all desktop computers. This version gets round the problem that we’ve had with Flash not working on certain devices. Here’s the link: http://labs.dreamingmethods.com/flightpaths/chapter1_open.html
As well as that, the newsletter provides a link to the Dreaming Methods mobile site.
All very exciting and, indeed, ground-breaking, developments for our work on ‘Flight Paths’.
