Tern Television's interactive arm has rebranded as The Story Mechanics, as the digital division shifts from a focus on television tie-ins to original IP.

The first title to be released under the new brand will be a digital adaptation of John Buchan’s classic The Thirty Nine Steps (pictured).

The Thirty Nine Steps will be available on PC, Mac, iPad and Android tablet platforms later this year. The Story Mechanics are lining up other titles for digital adaptation, including Franz Kafka's The Trial and Nathaniel West's The Day of The Locust.

"Digital adaptations are cinematic works of interactive fiction," says Simon Meek, executive producer and creative lead at The Story Mechanics. "They are story experiences that immerse the player in the world of the book, so they get to experience the narrative from the inside out."

The Story Mechanics has also just completed work on a story-game prototype based on Edward Lear's works of Nonsense. Adventures in Nonsense is an original story, where the player takes control of Violet - a girl who finds herself in the Lands of Nonsense, trying to save it and herself from the deadly Morbids.
