New Android and Kindle Cross Branding Approach

Pleasanton, California (EastBayDaily) — Video Software Lab has released an Android game and complementary Kindle story entitled, ‘Midshipman Henry Gallant in Space.’ The app is an Android arcade game with multiple levels where the player is the pilot of a star fighter battling alien flying saucer on a critical mission to get vital information back to Earth. As the player completes each level of combat, episodes of an illustrated story of the Saga are shown. The complete episodes are available for Kindle from Amazon and is linked from within the app. This method takes advantage of the close integration of mobile devices and applications..

Description of the Midshipman Henry Gallant Story:

As the last star fighter in Squadron 111, Midshipman Henry Gallant is on his way from Jupiter to the nearest space base in orbit around Mars. With the United Earth fleet on the verge of annihilation from the alien flying saucers, he can expect no help. In order to reach Mars, Gallant must make his way through the asteroid belt and threating aliens. With so much uncertainty about the alien capabilities and intentions, analyzing the captured computer equipment in Gallant’s possession could prove crucial.

As a result, the fate of Earth could rest on the abilities of Midshipman Henry Gallant. Unfortunately, it is his abilities that have been much in doubt during his tour of duty. In an era of genetic engineering, he is the only Natural (non-genetically enhanced) officer left in the fleet. His classmates and superiors have all expressed their concern that he may not be up to the demands of the space service. Only bright and attractive junior officer Kelsey Mitchel has shown any sympathy for Gallant. Now as his co-pilot and navigator on the last fighter in Squadron 111, her life as well as a good many others, depends of Henry Gallant.
