Upgrade Soul is the story of Hank and Molly Nonnar, wealthy science buffs who decide to fund a risky, experimental therapy to rejuvenate the human body, with only one condition: that they be first in line to receive it. When dangerous complications develop, a battle for psychological dominance begins.
Each chapter is about 1/2 the length of a typical comic book. Chapters 1 and 7 are included free with the app; all other chapters (up to Chapter 9) are available individually via in-app purchase. Chapters 2-6 can also be purchased as a bundle, at a 20% discount. There will be 18 chapters in all.
The universal app requires at least an iPad 2, iPad mini, iPhone 4, or iPod touch (5th generation).
Upgrade Soul is the first title developed with Panoply, a new technology from Opertoon that combines the visual language of comics with the Unity game engine.
