Description

Sofus and the Moonmachine is a prize-winning interactive storybook for iOS. In this mix between a game and a children?s book, kids will venture into a magical world they will never forget. The charming story is inspired by old Nordic fairytales, and the playful world is filled with fully animated creatures, robots and gnorfs. All 19 interactive illustrations are accompanied by unique pieces of music ? exclusively composed for this adventurous experience. Parents can choose to read aloud for their children, like a classic children?s book, or switch to a charismatic narrator. By interacting with the scenes, kids will help Sofus on his dangerous journey and become a part of the story!

History

Project

Sofus and the Moonmachine was developed over a period of 3 years by The Outer Zone in Copenhagen, Denmark. The vision of Malte Burup, was to create a high quality experience on the app market for kids, inspired by Nordic illustrators, retro synth music and the deep woods of Scandinavia. After one and a half years of development, Malte teamed up with Mikkel, Pelle and Kasper to bring the story to life. The result is a handcrafted, unique and warm-hearted tale, highly loved by the critics, the kids and their parents.
