Almost every child heard the famous Charles Dickens novel A Christmas Carol while growing up. Disney famously retold the story with Mickey and the gang, it’s hit the big screen with various actors like Jim Carrey, and now it’s coming to the iPhone and iPad!
PadWorx is taking the familiar story and giving it a Steampunk twist. With the app itself being more of an interactive book rather than an actual game, A Christmas Carol should be a fun thing to read this holiday season either by yourself or with your children.
Based on the trailer alone, I want to give it a read. The music reminds me of something I’d hear while watching a Tim Burton movie, and the video below only further solidifies that mental image. With 130 pages to read, wonderful music, and interaction to help immerse yourself into the book itself, this take on A Christmas Carol is bound to be a best-seller in the iTunes Store.
