The studio decided to move into active comics from the role as full game developers. The studio was looking to get great comic content to a new audience in a reduced development cycle. Storylines are produced in-house, and with guest copywriters.
Active elements are presented on a pause screen.
This will include main character bios, just touch the character. Main objects such as computers,vehicles and buildings also have further sub-story information when touched.
£5000 : Teaser episode of Fantasy Active Comic Season 1.

Risks and challenges
The project technology is currently running inside Unity. Cross platform development is handled by Unity and allows optimized versions for each of the platforms. The project will have a small footprint less than 1MB, so friendly on mobile devices.
Final product approval from platform holders usually take around 1-2 weeks. So this is scheduled in the development timetable.
