Tilt your device to change the angle. Animated with layers of two- and three-dimensional elements, Protanopia responds to how you tilt your device by changing the perspective.
What is it about?
I've read literally hundreds of digital comics over the years, and I've never come across one like Protanopia. It's animated, but beyond that, it's sensitive to how you're holding and moving your iPhone. More on that in a moment.
Why we love it
One of the coolest features of Protanopia is the mélange of two- and three-dimensional elements within it. It's animated, so you can see the boat bobbing up and down as it approaches the beachhead. If you tilt your device, the perspective of the comic actually shifts with your movement. I won't give away the story, but I'll say this: it's a morbid, but humorous, take on the horrors and ingenuity of soldiers and how that can sometimes be a serious detriment. It's definitely a nice touch, and I can see the developer doing a lot more with it in future endeavors. In the meantime, Protanopia is a great, if short, example of what André Bergs thinks digital comics should be doing, and I think I agree with him. This has been the most entertaining digital comic I've read in quite a long time.
