Summer of Darkness

November 14, 2016

Custom iOS app and companion authoring tool, asset and game design and development.

Conceived to celebrate the 200th anniversary of The Year Without Summer, this iPhone/iPad app tells the story of the famous summer Lord Byron, Percy Shelley, Mary Shelley, and their companions spent in Switzerland — the summer the world was supposed to end.

Beginning in May 2016, the story of The Year Without Summer will unfold as a series of notifications appearing on your iPhone or iPad. Notifications will arrive in “real” time concurrent to the dates and times the events actually took place in 1816, from Claire Claremont’s romantic pursuit of Lord Byron to Percy Bysshe Shelley’s writing of Mont Blanc to the famous night when Mary Shelley had a vision of Frankenstein’s monster in response to a ghost story writing challenge issued by Lord Byron.
