App Store Description

"Poe’s classic short story of murder and madness is here subtly but effectively repurposed to haunt the dreams of a whole new generation of readers."
- KIRKUS (starred review)


The Tell-Tale Heart follows up the success of Rocket Chair Media's debut app, The Metamorphosis for iPad, as an interactive, illustrated and page-less version of this Edgar Allan Poe masterpiece.

Highlighting its iconic imagery, but not literalizing its action—with the complete, original text embedded throughout— this presentation of a man's journey through an evaluation of his own madness invites a reader to experience narrative with a richness and tactility only possible through multimedia touch screens. To unfold the story, readers gesture through an expansive illustrated environment. By pinching, swiping and rotating in all directions, The Tell-Tale Heart animates in both space and time – adding new layers of meaningful metaphoric content to the narrator's world.
