An interactive map
The map is the homepage of the app. It allows the navigation between the chapters.
This map evolves during the reading experience . Indeed, the locations appear when Hermès goes to this places in the history.
1 location = corresponding characters and chapters
Each location corresponds to one of few chapters. In the story, Hermès encounters specific characters in each location. When you tap on one location, you can see the corresponding characters and chapters .
1 character = 1 skill = 1 card
During the story, Hermès acquires more and more knowledge and skills as he encouters characters and he has to reuse it. During the reading, the kid has to solve puzzles by putting the right character’s card corresponding to the action to achieve. The card is recognized on the tablet thanks to the conductive ink technology.
