If you’re wondering what a Byook is, it’s a whole new book form that is based on a story “beyond words”. Little Fear is the second story by Byook, following S.Holmes, and this one provides a creepy short story. Little Fear is about a little boy and his younger brother trying to hide from the bogey man. What makes it different from a regular ghost story, is that every page is a full on animated scene, and not just words on a page. Everything is designed to immerse you into the action on each page of the byook.
Each page also includes sound effects to fit what is happening in the story, and both sounds and animations create a book and movie mixture that is amazing to read on an iOS device. A good example is hearing the creaking of floor boards, and childrens’ screams while seeing dimming light, silhouettes of scary figures, and hand drawn images of the scene on the page. Byook takes books to the next level, and Little Fear gives you a free taste of what byooks are all about. The story itself isn’t the most chilling tale, but it is definitely a creepy read through especially when mixed with blood dripping on the page, and eerie sounds throughout.
Little Fear (Free, iPhone / Free, iPad) is one of the most engaging reading experiences on the platform. This free short story only contains 30 pages, but it gives you an outstanding glimpse of what to expect from the 230 page S.Holmes tale of one particular case. Little Fear is a great read for Halloween, and you’ll love every single page of it. Byook is the future of books, and we only hope that the company can make more of these great apps.
