A group of game developers from the fantastically named Loveshack Entertainment have announced a rather intriguing iOS game that mixes our two favourite things – comics and iPads. The game is called ‘Framed‘ and looks like an old style comic book page – but no ordinary one. Your character works his way through the panels in order, according to what the panel depicts – whatever the consequences might be – and as the player it’s up to you to prevent your hero from meeting a sticky end by rearranging the panels so he make it to the end of the page unharmed.
I was inspired to write this blog after writing an article for a UK-based iPhone and iPad magazine called Tap! The article was all about comics on the iPad and I talked to so many interesting and helpful people in the comics industry who told me all about the world of digital comics on the iPad and iPhone that I simply didn’t have room to include everything they said in the article. I spoke to everyone from writers and artists to coders and distributors and so instead on wasting their time, I have decided to set-up this blog and post much more detailed interviews from the people who took the time to answer my question by way of a thank you.
