Transworld and Cunning Artificer have faceplook pages for news and competitions, but I have no intention of signing or getting an Ipad for an app, if it comes out for android fair enough but I won't hold my breath waiting. :violin: :mrgreen:

Didn't he actually announce this at the Con? Or is that my imagination running wild?

Yes he did! But no indication as when it would be finished.
What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!

This on twitter: Terry Pratchett ‏@terryandrob
We’re getting very excited about the forthcoming Discworld App - http://www.discworldapp.com - not long to wait!

But faceborg is a step too far for me.

Here are some details that were posted on Facebook earlier. You don't have to be a member to access this link. :)

Looks interesting. :)

What I would like to know is when it's coming out in other mediums so we can all enjoy it.

* Two beautiful hand-drawn maps of Ankh-Morpork - a living, breathing animated map with over 1,500 residents wandering the streets and a detailed street map.
* Information on over 2,000 businesses, services and landmarks, with illustrations and quotes from the Discworld novels.
* A newly created dynamic panning soundscape that matches the atmosphere of a city at work.
* Animated Discworld characters to discover as they walk the city’s streets.
* A fully searchable city directory and street index
* Guided walking tours of famous landmarks, narrated by Blackadder’s Helen Atkinson-Wood.
* Achievement tracking in Game Center which can be shared through social media.
* Features all the text from the book The Compleat Ankh-Morpork plus exclusive new illustrations, animations, audio and video.

Liberally sprinkled with some Terry Pratchett magic!


Soooo . . .

Assuming you've got an iPad and assuming you've got the app - who are you looking forward to meeting in the streets of A-M? And where would you explore?


I wonder if they have the Whore Pits? :think: ;)

From what was said on Facebook it doesn't look like other platforms have been considered. I think there was almost 6000 comments asking for it on other platforms.
