Against all odds, a new planet has been mysteriously captured by our solar system. The gravitational effects on Earth by Kepler Z have been traumatic, but does this rogue planet hold answers to the universe, and possibly our own evolution?
The two of us have self-funded the 250 pages of artwork AND the development of a new interactive application called Zyndo. Zyndo will bring our science fiction epic to you in the most immersive way possible on tablets, phones, gaming consoles, and even VR.
In Sumeria, you can dig EVEN Deeper...
Most of the science and tech of our story have roots in real news stories of today. Our Changing Times Newspaper and SEARCH BAR at the end of each chapter will give you the keys to follow our discovery process, and open up new ideas of your own on where our world might be headed.
Into a world where the lines of stars and cells, and science and art become blurred...
....and Interactivity makes you a part of the story.
Our z-Books are brought to you by Zyndo. Visit their website (www.zyndo.com) and sign up for their mailing list to stay informed about other interactive products coming out soon.

Risks and challenges
Since we are 95% finished with the book, we are very confident we will be able to deliver the print issues and books by the specified delivery dates.
With respect to the digital interactive book, we have built the technology from scratch over the last 2 years. From that experience, we have worked through many bug fixes to have a stable platform, but the engine has yet to be fully loaded with all chapter pages. We are committed to finishing the interactive digital version, with the likelihood that we plan to deliver it on a per chapter basis.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
