In “Cowboys & Aliens: The Kids,” three children – a Western cowboy, a Native American, and a space alien – meet and become friends while playing with their toys.
The App Book features a breadth of voice narration, painting functionality, sharing and customization of characters using photos from one’s photo library, plus social sharing via Facebook, Twitter and e-mail.
Orbit Media Group, a boutique consulting firm, has announced a partnership with global charity Starlight Children’s Foundation, whereby Orbit will make a donation from each sale of Orbit’s new interactive children’s storybook App “Cowboys & Aliens: The Kids” to the Starlight Foundation.[ Also Read: Knowledge Stories for Children – Ten Tales ]
The partnership comes in the wake of entertainment company Platinum Studios licensing the original story from Platinum CEO Scott Mitchell Rosenberg, who created the New York Times best-selling graphic novel and recently released blockbuster movie, Cowboys & Aliens, for Orbit to create an interactive storybook application for all Apple iOS and select Android OS devices.
Orbit has partnered with Julia Delany and Kimon Taliadoros from Australian company Hub4Content on the marketing of the App Book.
“Cowboys & Aliens: The Kids” retails for $4.99 and is currently available in the Apple App Store. The Android version will follow later in August. It was announced today, August 3.
