The Bedsby Tales is an episodic app; with 6 short stories in development, our goal is to provide an amazing experience to kids who love a good chill! We currently have our first episode “Thoughts of Unknown” complete, and we’re beginning work on episode 2 “Basement So Deep”.
We’ve built a compelling “Choice Mechanics” system into The Bedsby Tales that will eventually give each viewer the opportunity to “Choose” how they might respond to a scary or frightening situation. Episode 2 will feature ghosts, skeletons, witches and a smelly old corpse…exactly what a kid expects to be in the Basement So Deep! More detail about episode 2 will be available when we’re further along in development.
