Exciting times are ahead for Leuven based studio Possibly Pixels. Tomorrow, March 29, marks the App Store release of their digital storybook app TaleThings. The application will launch with the story 3 Goats and a Troll. Check out the trailer!
Built with Unity, TaleThings stories are brought to life with playful animations and effects. Toddlers can marvel at the beautiful scenery while listening to the story, while children who are learning to read can follow along with the word highlighting feature. As the stories are narrated by professional voice actors in different languages (English, Dutch, French, Spanish, Chinese (Simplified) and Norwegian), the app is also a fun way to learn a new language.
After years of designing and developing educational games and apps in the academic field, Possibly Pixels was founded in 2013 by Jelle Husson, Jeroen Wauters and Lieven Van den Audenaeren. Within Possibly Pixels, TaleThings was created by Jelle Husson with the initial goal to create a high quality story book app for his 2 year old niece. Building on the framework developed for the first book, the team is planning to add more stories in the future.
