The story follows Leo, a homeless man who lost his family and friends and finds shelter in an abandoned building. However, Leo is not alone.

He's visited by some strange shadow people every day who have the ability to take him into dream-like dimensions. Those worlds are Leo's escape from his own overwhelming reality, until he encounters something there that will change his life.

Everything about this is absolutely amazing. If it ever becomes an opportunity, maybe try and get in contact with the romantically apocalyptic team, because I'm sure they're always looking for great art and stories such as these.

Mantho, that is a really cool medium indeed and a nice story you made! It must have been a lot of work to make this, and its very cool that you made it all available for free.
The story is quite evocative and seems to me to be very symbolic, it can make you think of many things like drug addiction or escapism into art/literature/films/games.
I'm looking forward to seeing the rest!

Thank you very much my friend, Im very glad that you enjoyed it and picked up all those messages. I was indeed aiming to convey such emotions and deep symbolism. Motion book tool allowed me to tell a story that I had years on my head but couldnt find the proper medium to express it. Im anticipating to be working on many more projects in the near future and ofcourse, the continuation of the current book. I wanted to make it available so everyone can enjoy it but it was indeed extremely hard work as I created the entire thing by myself. It will be a while until a next one comes out but Im definitely excited to be working on it. I appreciate your wonderful comment and really great to see people picking up on everything that I tried to put with care and passion into this story!  :)
