DAMN Digital Studio, an interactive agency based in Dumbo, Brooklyn, New York City’s Digital District, has released its first installment of The Nick Versus Series, an interactive children’s book, to the Android Market. Developed for tablet devices, such as the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the Motorola Zoom, Nick Versus is available for download. An iPad version is being developed.
Creators of The Nick Versus Series, Danii Oliver and Kevin Braithwaite, co-founders of DAMN Digital, created the interactive book to use technology tools to engage youth in reading and increase their readership. Every story will show youth how to deal with situations that come up in their lives.
The series follows the life of Nick, a young boy growing up in New York City as he faces new challenges and overcomes them. Nick's life is full of adventure, technology, working parents, and learning to navigate life.
Each week, Nick finds himself in a situation where he has to face a battle versus a new opponent. For example, Nick Versus the Dark highlights Nick as he overcomes his fear of the dark. During these adventures, Nick will overcome obstacles with the help of the reader. In order to complete the book, users will have to navigate through a plot or complete a challenge. After these battles, Nick sits at his desk and writes an email to his grandparents describing his experiences.
The interactive book focuses on engaging children in the digital space; not by just having them stare at a screen, but also involving them within the book’s storyline. The book features games, puzzles, animations, cut scene videos, audio, read along and sound effects, and is touch sensitive. The interactive book series is a great resource for parents hoping to teach their children responsibility, teachers and other education professionals, and youth who love to read while incorporating technology.
The Nick Versus Series is part of “The Digital Zone" project pipeline, which uses technology to help people navigate their digital lifestyles.
