The Atavist, one of our favorite venues for long-form journalism (and a great example of what the future of the medium looks like--their iPad stories have videos, photos, timelines, references, and more, all elegantly presented), just announced their latest story: "The Case of the Missing Moon Rocks", by Joe Kloc. It's the story of Joseph Gutheinz, a rogue NASA investigator, who's dedicated his life to retrieving lost or stolen moon rocks. It's available for $2.99 (Atavist app or iBooks) or $1.99 (Kindle, Nook, text). Now if you'll excuse us, we have some reading work to do.
Once upon a time, a small game developer created a demo called The Graveyard that left video game journalists puzzled. The entire game involved playing an old woman who visited a graveyard and then left, unless you paid for the full game version that allowed a chance for the character to die. Journalists debated The Graveyard's merits, and some questioned whether it represented a game or some sort of interactive art.
Now the same game developer, Tale of Tales, has come out with a modern-day horror version of "Little Red Riding Hood" called The Path.
