Consider this a call for comment from the transmedia peanut gallery.
Houston-based designer/author Karen Snyder has teamed up with digital publishing platform PubSoft for a new transmedia-focused venture.
Currently raising funds via IndieGoGo the project is called Transmedia Story Stream, and aims to be an all-in-one solution for ebook authors who want to add both multimedia oomph and social engagement to their properties.
The platform website features some solid endorsements from authors and transmedia producers, but I’ll note that the pitch leans a bit heavy on the buzzwords . It is probably inadvisable to call oneself the “Zynga” of anything these days, given that company’s struggles in the past year.
Here’s what I’d like to know from the transmedia authors/producers out there: is the platform as presented enticing to you? Does it solve real problems that you currently face? For those who have used it, how does it compare to The Shadow Gang‘s Galahad?
