Level 26

From the new world of old media...

One of the speakers and the Absolut event I went to last week was Anthony Zuiker. Creator/Producer/Writer of the CSI franchise. His new endeavor is quite interesting.

He wrote a book!

Okay, it's not just any book. It's a dark thriller.

Okay, not just a dark thriller novel. A "Digi-Novel."

One that attempts to incorporate elements of new and old media.

To quote the site Level 26 is "a multi-platform experience that moves the reader from passages in the books to videos and interactive content."

You don't just read Level 26: Dark Origins, you log in, watch and interact with it. There are webisodes after every chapter which piece together more parts of the story and unlock special codes. Plus a social media aspect to the book where readers can compare notes and interact.

The first installment of the book will arrive in stores September 8. Till then you can register on the site and begin your experience.

It's an interesting approach. Lets hope it works.

Seems like a good idea but didn't they try this in video game format a couple years ago (I forget the name of it... something about missing tourists?). Then again, I guess the point of the same was to figure out clues; the story is what's driving Level 26.

I'll give it a shot, for sure.

Sounds great in theory. I cant wait to see how it works in reality.
