Step In Books
handcrafting digital experiences to tell truly
interactive stories for children and lovers of art.
our vision. this is
what we stand for.
In 2014 Step In Books was founded to experiment with novel ways to experience stories in games. These experiments were a direct response to the amount of kitsch in available apps and their game design. A lot of game designers know how to make innovative things, which engage children, but they don‘t work with art. On the other hand you got all the artists, who don‘t know what engages. As game designers, we work closely with authors and artists to preserve and enhance the original artistic vision of the fictional work.
Therefore all our projects are very different and tailor-made to focus on the unique artistic properties of each fictional piece. We work closely with the creative forces behind the original work to ensure that the project is always true to the original vision that it enriches.
current and past projects.
stay tuned. see what we are up to.
