All of us are fans of books. Remember - when you've read your last book what did you thought about stupid mistakes made by main character. Did you thought that you can do it better that him? Now, with Walkie talkie you have a chance to be better space cowboy than Han Solo and better detective than Sherlock Holmes.
What it does
Walkie Talkie - it's interactive book and text adventure game like MUD, but with extra features like embeded images and videos. You can use it for entertainment and for education. You can teach your employees how to work with problematic customers or entertain your children while you're working on your new project :)
How I built it
We build it with fun and jokes :) And with great support from tech guys from Skype, Jelastic, Radix and our friends across the globe :)
