Description: This app is essentially a series of stories crafted by the artists and storytellers of Penrose Studios. This one (of many more to come we presume) is called “Rose”. The story goes that a character who is living inside a meteorite (or maybe it’s a planet) finds the flowing growing on his meteorite and decides to take care of it by watering the poor, dried-up plant. Once watered the rose starts to bloom and so does their friendship.

Review: There will be 2 main things that will really surprise you about this short animated story. The first is the quality of the animation. It’s so fluid and beautiful in both graphics and sound. And the 2nd is just how immersive it will make you. It might be a short story but towards the end even I started to care for the little flower! If you enjoy a short animated story or two, download this and try out the future of 3D animated stories.
