DreamWorks Press released Thursday an interactive story app based on the characters from DreamWorks’ Dragon franchise.
Following the launch of their publishing division, DreamWorks Press: Dragons is the studio’s first self-published story app, allowing readers to train their own dragons, explore unseen lands, and become the lead character within brand-new Dragon tales.
The app is the initial installment in a series for which subsequent chapters will become available, continuing the reader’s adventure with Hiccup and Toothless.
