A New Version of Hamlet: You Pick the Ending

Friday, December 21, 2012

This morning, a new record was broken on the online funding platform Kickstarter for the site’s most successful publishing project.

A quirky first-person choose-your-own-adventure book has managed to raise more than half a million dollars – more than 25 times its original goal of $20,000.

The book is called "To Be or Not to Be: That is the Adventure," and it transforms Shakespeare’s "Hamlet" into an interactive cartoon adventure where readers choose their fate.

Joining us now is the project’s creator, web cartoonist Ryan North.

Guests:
