I don’t think it’s a shock to anyone to hear that the world of publishing has rapidly changed – and certainly NOT settled yet at all. (I actually wonder if ever it will, either… or are all authors now going to be working in an authorship world in perpetual flux?)
To that end, I built an App. A free app to go along with with publication of my new book. It’s called THE NERD GIRLS GAME and it’s basically a brain-testing puzzle app which runs on Apple devices, integrates with Facebook, Twitter, the Apple Game Center, and so on which features over 30 hours of game play and achievements so players can show off their Nerd Factor.
Here’s a sample… (Free download available on June 23 in the Apple App Store.)
Screen 3: The game is a twist on the classic card matching game. Like before, you have to flip a card and then flip over the matching card. The catch is when you flip a card up you can only match with the card above, below, to the left of, and to the right of the card. You will have to swipe cards around while face down to get matching cards next to each other. It takes brain power to keep track of where these cards when you’re flipping them around face down while the clock is ticking.
Screen 5: There’s plenty of bonus content, too! The App has extra credit including achievements, and other unlockables. Players can go directly to buy a copy of Nerd Girls: Rise of the Dork-a-saurus. Players can go check out the Nerd Girls world including the Nerd Girls facebook page, twitter page, website, and join the mailinglist to get all the latest nerd news. Players also get the chance to meet the nerds by checking out their school IDs
