This text is not an adaptation of something that appeared originally in print nor is it an e-book in the commonly accepted understanding of the term but a genuinely new transmedia concept in reading, which combines elements of the written word, digital still photography, moving image, drawing, painting, puzzles, music, sound effects and computer gaming. However, what makes Inanimate Alice special is that while it has the immersive qualities of a film and the interactivity of a computer game, the pull of the narrative and the appeal of the central characters are its greatest strengths.
