Frog's Princess is an interactive story app being developed for Apple and Android phones and tablets as well as Apple and Windows computers.
Frog's Princess is based on the fairy tale published as "The Frog King & Iron Henry" by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm in 1810.
Players follow the story, choosing from out of ten different fully voiced dialogues for the prince and princess. If they make a choice at every opportunity their version will likely be unique, and they will have designed the heroes they want. Played straight through without pausing to make choices takes 2 hours and 48 minutes.
The princess has been taught that one day her prince will come. She starts off calling for help, but ends up saving the kingdom herself. The prince starts off as a show-off, hiding his insecurity, and ends up self-confident enough to heal the kingdom and the princess.
Even quite young players tend to read ahead of the voiced dialogue, improving reading fluency.
Teaching opportunities are strongest for:
English language exercises
Structure and archetypes in fairy tales
Insight into motivation of other people
Reading fluency for slow readers
