"The adventures of Pinocchio" is an everygreen story published countless times over the decades. While it is known worldwide mostly in its sugar-coated Disney cartoon version, the original plot is crude and sometimes grotesque, with a tone way closer to the world of Tim Burton.
In the early 2010s, the quickly evolving digital landscape allowed us to propose a totally new approach in re-publishing this book: innovative and engaging in the format, while authentic and truthful to Collodi's original masterpiece in the tone.
The e-book, relatively fresh on the market that time, aimed to take reader entertainment and engagement to the next level, through different solutions: those intrinsically linked to the e-book format, like language choice, text formatting, bookmarks & notes, etc., and most importantly those created specifically for the edition like the interactive 3D and animations accompanied by original music and sound effects.
While the integrity of the original novel has been retained, it was enriched by a vivid, multidimensional experience thanks to the use of 3D effects and parallax that fully benefits from the technical features of mobile devices, such as gyroscopes, accelerometers and video resolution.
The e-book received several excellent reviews around the globe, and was among the top 50 e-book downloaded in Asia in 2012.
