Cat Scratch is an enhanced e-book built for Android tablets. While most e-books are built using the standard EPUB format, Cat Scratch was an app built in the Unity3D game engine with art assets from Adobe InDesign that enhanced e-book functionality with features like parallax image, animation, sound and interactivity that are only available in a digital format.

 

We conducted four playtests during our development process, which allowed us to profile the use cases of multimedia reading, gauge reading comprehension through A/B testing and troubleshoot instruction design of the feature types.
