Blog Post 10: Pry

Pry was an extremely interesting storytelling app. Unlike some of the other apps I have downloaded and immediately deleted for class, I could see myself using this one in the future because I am very intrigued by the format it uses and the story that is being told. From what I gathered the story is told from the point of view of a young man who works on a construction site. The story goes back and forth between the main characters dialogue, subconscious, and actual real-life perspective. In some of his subconscious thoughts it seems like he may have been involved in a war of some kind. His internal dialogue suggests that he is insecure about his boss firing him, and his actual perspective shows him at the job site.

While the unfolding story is a little hard to follow, there is something really special about the interface and navigation that is used to tell this story. No longer is storytelling limited to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd perspective. A story can offer you so many other kinds of information and insight to get a compelling story across to its audiences. The app pry is doing an excellent job of this and is definitely onto something.
