Haunting Melissa is the future of interactive storytelling
3 March 2014 | by Jonathan NiermanSee all my reviews

I was fortunate to come across Haunting Melissa close to the time that the app was launched in the AppStore. As someone who loves intelligently written horror and compelling storytelling, I was blown away from day one!

HM was created by one of the best in the genre (Neal Edelstein), and he put together an incredible cast to help him play out this frightening tale to the audience. Add to this the interactive elements (think visuals/characters that appear upon second or third viewing of a chapter), and HM truly raises the bar for how we are entertained by taking advantage of a team of tech-savvy designers at Hooked Digital Media.

I truly look forward to Haunting Melissa 2, and have no doubt they will yet again thrill viewers by exploring new and exciting ways for them to connect to the story and it's characters.
