|‘MARK OF ODIN’ A SUCCESSFUL TRANSMEDIA BOOK THAT TRIES TO GLOBALIZE ON KICKSTARTER
Author Xavier Marce releases a crowdfunding campaign to internationalize his transmedia saga Mark of Odin
|Seville, August 26th 2015 – Mark of Odin is a transmedia book, a new narrative, visual and digital experience that author Xavier Marcé has made famous in Spain. Book readers will finally have the chance of enjoying the reading experience in a way they have never done thanks to the innovative transmedia epic saga of Mark of Odin that is now available on Kickstarter to get funds for its internationalization. Its surprising story mixes the Norse Mythology with Science Fiction and Modern Warfare in a way no one has ever done before, using an audiovisual narrative and being supported with a whole universe of transmedia content once the reader finishes the last page of the first book.
“Kickstarter it’s the natural choice for crowdfunding when you want to reach the wider public possible, especially for the United States of America,” said author & creator Xavier Marcé. “Our innovative way to understand the reading experience, creating synergies between the physical and the digital worlds, will not only deliver an entertainment that doesn’t end with the last book page but encourages people to read and support us, because the more paid readers, the more content and extras they will receive.”
With Mark of Odin: The Awakening, the first issue of this saga, starts a new literary model that merges the reading experience with the infinite possibilities of an interactive transmedia universe of extended content available in an online platform with gamification features, where readers can enjoy a progression experience and a great degree of interaction with the author and the evolution of the saga.
The extended content includes bonus chapters, short stories, extended descriptions, geo-localized maps, all supported by videos, music, illustrations, 3d renders and more. Mark of Odin counts with the support of international artists like the famous American illustrator Michael Komark, the awarded with a Hollywood Music in Media Awards, Knut Avenstroup Haugen, the visual effects supervisor Manuel Rico, involved in movies like Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, Star Trek Into Darkness or Oblivion, or the Art Director and Sculptor Manu Nieto, among others.
