Barcelona, Spain – iClassics Collection, the Barcelona-based reference in Interactive Reading for smart devices, releases today its new collection iDoyle: The Interactive Adventures of Sherlock Holmes – A Scandal in Bohemia. This adaptation of the renowned detective allows the reader to interact with the mystery using all five of their senses. It sheds a new light on this original story, which appeared for the first time in 1892, and is the first out of 56 stories about Sherlock Holmes.
The character of Holmes has been extensively adapted in theatre, film, television and video games, and played by more than 70 different actors. iClassics sets new standards in the way of experiencing the Sherlock Holmes story. The app offers a unique interactive reading experience enriched with illustrations, sounds effects, animation and an original soundtrack that turns the reading into a fully immersive experience to engage everyone from younger generations to literary classics.
“iClassics provides a magical combination of elements to read and enjoy a classic piece of literature,” said David G. Fores, Creative Director at iClassics. “Whether you are a book lover or someone who hasn’t yet discovered the pleasure of reading, this innovative way of reading will keep you engaged throughout the story and bring new light and excitement to a classic piece of literature you may have never read otherwise.”
Moreover, the experience does not have to be the same for all readers. The reader sets the rhythm, deciding whether to listen to the music or not, and chooses whether to interact with the story or to act as a witness of this Scandal in Bohemia. iClassics presents a multi-sensorial experience to (re)discovery of one of the must-read classics of all times in a renewed format of leisure.
