Beta

Our little grey cat beta offers basic functionality for evaluation purpose only. Current functionality is based on photographic image and pathways. Future implementations include ability to annotate and audio and video options

======================

Using greyCat

The little grey cat engine is written in Adobe Flex, it needs the adobe AIR plugin to work (cross platform)

There are two parts to the program at the moment:

  • the little grey cat engine itself
  • the little grey cat player

Both are available as a zipped file [download greyCat.zip]

An example story

The following visual story of Hamish’s laundry was made as a prototype for greyCat – text was added at the photograph stage using a simple graphic program
