SEALED BOOK PROJECT ©

SEALED BOOK PROJECT
is a series of interactive
CHALLENGE BOOKS,
suitable for people of all ages
who love the excitement of reading novels from the genre:

Mystery / Thriller / Suspense / Adventure

The Project

Our CHALLENGE BOOKS are based on a unique concept with which we want to challenge our readers by offering them the opportunity of personal involvement in the action by means of some special options for solving the puzzles that make up an integral part of the story.
For when to the reading process is added a gaming element, the reader is placed into a state of excitement that bears no comparison with any other.
To make this technically viable, we publish our books in the form of mobile Android and iOS applications which can be downloaded free of charge from Google Play and Apple Store and are also entirely free to read – from beginning to end.
SEALED BOOK PROJECT offers a special and different interactive experience that is a delight both to the intellect and to the senses. This is because apart from a story with puzzles in it, integrated in our CHALLENGE BOOKS are also specially created sounds, images, music and graphics which intensify the overall effect.


 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

1. How do I get involved in the story and solve the puzzles?

You simply read the book and enjoy it because everything in it will follow a natural and intuitive pattern. The story in our CHALLENGE BOOKS will take you along and lead you to places where the main characters will face various puzzles and challenges. Every time this happens you will have to choose between two options:

A. To think faster than everyone else and figure out the answers to the puzzle before the main characters do.

B. To figure out the answers to the puzzle alongside the main characters. For this purpose, you’ll see showing additional pages bearing the code name SEAL. It’s not by chance that the entire project is named SEALED BOOK PROJECT.

2. What about the puzzles themselves?

The puzzles are of various kinds. We can’t now tell you more about them because we don’t want to spoil the pleasure of the whole experience.

3. What is a joker and why is it named SEAL?

We have named all our jokers SEAL because they are exactly like the letters to which in the old days a king or a pope would apply his unique wax seal so that on receiving such a letter the recipient could be sure that no one else has read the confidential information in it.

Following the same principle, our jokers also bear a symbolic wax seal which can be broken only when the button SEAL is pressed. The secret information it keeps will then appear on an additional page. Each successive “broken” SEAL will reveal more and more information about the puzzle and will give you clues and ideas on how to find the correct answer.

4. How many are the jokers hidden behind the SEAL buttons?

There are exactly 4 SEAL buttons behind each and similarly, the total number of jokers for each puzzle is also 4. After each joker, if you already have the correct answer, you can enter it in the field specially created for it and pass on to the next chapter, skipping the remaining secret seals that hide the remaining jokers.

5. Can I go on reading if I have already opened all 4 jokers and have read all the information, they contain but I still haven’t figured out the correct answer?

Yes, because there is NO danger whatsoever of not moving forward. If you’ve already pressed the buttons SEAL 1, SEAL 2 и SEAL 3 and have read the information each of them contains but you’re still not quite sure about the correct answer, following SEAL 3 is the last hidden joker – SEAL 4. It will reveal the answer to the puzzle which will be written exactly as it must be entered in the field intended for it.

6. I’m not particularly keen on solving puzzles but I like the story. Can I read it without bothering about the correct answers?

Yes, you can. As we’ve already explained, each joker hidden behind the SEAL button contains in fact the logical continuation of the story and does not consist of just one or two words. If you don’t feel like solving a puzzle (or more than one), you simply “break” all SEALS and read the jokers whenever they are due. In this way you’ll have read the whole book – from the first word to the last.

7. How do I know if I’ll like it?

If you love exciting stories full of mysteries, puzzles, codes, strange symbols, ancient languages, conspiracy theories and all other sorts of exotic secrets, then
SEALED BOOK PROJECT and its series of CHALLENGE BOOKS
is just the right thing for you.
And it’s 100% free, so...what can you lose by trying?

What is a CHALLENGE BOOK?

It is each one of the books that make up our SEALED BOOK PROJECT. We have given them this name because they face the readers with mysteries and puzzles they have to solve in order to move ahead in this thriller story filled with riddles, codes, unknown symbols, ancient languages, conspiracy theories, and many other exotic secrets.

 

How many CHALLENGE BOOKS are there?

PRAELUDIUM is the first in the series of challenge books and will soon be followed by its sequel. We can’t yet reveal the exact number of the parts making up the whole series but we promise there will be enough of them to make the experience highly addictive – though only in the best possible and most positive sense.

BOOK 1 - PRAELUDIUM

In the middle of the twentieth century a representative of the two mightiest driving forces in society – the Church and Science – publicly announced that he had created something that had until then been considered unthinkable and impossible.

To the day he died this person never retracted his claim; moreover, many authoritative researchers in the field assert that this artefact does exist, even at this very moment, and is one of the most closely guarded secrets in human history. Where it is now and whether it has been used is anybody’s guess…
The story you are about to read offers just one possible version of what might have happened and may even be happening right now.

All places mentioned in PRAELUDIUM are real and exist to this very day!
Any resemblance to actual persons and events… could be accidental!

The Creators

Hi and welcome to our virtual home!
Who are we and what do we do?
We are SEALED BOOK PROJECT
and we create books of a kind you’ve never seen before!

Creator 1: Natalie

“SHE” is the project’s limitless energy and is responsible for the design, the social networks and for so many other things that to list them all requires more space than we have here.

E-mail: 
creator1@sealedbook.com

Creator 2: George

“HE” is the project’s tireless passion and is responsible for the story, the music (yes, he plays it personally) and some other things that are definitely fewerthan those of Creator 1.

E-mail: 
creator2@sealedbook.com

Creator 3: Annie

“The little SHE” is the project’s inexhaustible love and is responsible for two things only which are nevertheless of enormous significance – the artistic chaos she produces and the frequent interruptions of the work process she forces Creator 1 and Creator to make.
Explained simply: when She runs (which she does all the time except when she sleeps) the abovementioned Creator 1 and Creator must run after her.

How did it all begin?

We are a family that loves challenges. This is why in the now distant 2014 we created, all by our own efforts, the first ever Escape the Room Game in our native city. It was at the time also one of the first games of this type in the whole of Europe.
And as four years slipped by and our team increased from two to three members, we felt the rising and irresistible awareness that the time was ripe for a new grand challenge.

At the beginning, SEALED BOOK PROJECT was a tentative idea that first materialized as:

A small room with two pianos, an old laptop, a notebook containing many scattered thoughts and a head crammed with ideas.
Since that time (the beginning of 2018), we have been:
thinking, writing, researching, planning, creating, correcting, playing the piano, recording music, writing again, correcting again, sleeping little and putting all our energies and efforts into that idea.

Most certainly, such a big, serious and long-term project cannot all be accomplished only by three people, which in our case is even two and a half, the half being invaluable but still more of an obstacle than a help (and luckily can’t yet read these lines).
That’s why this is the place to express our thanks to the wonderful people and professionals who are working alongside with us and helping us to turn all sorts of crazy and eccentric ideas into reality.

Top 10 Highlights

 

1. A multidimensional concept, unique of its kind

The books we create are books with a difference.

With them, you don’t choose the ending.

The ending chooses you and challenges you to reach it.

Can you do it?

 

 

2. Completely cost-free

Available for reading from the first to the last word, without you having to pay for anything.

This is what we call 100% cost-free!

3. Available in multiple languages

You have at your disposal 6 (six!) languages:
English, German, French, Spanish, Russian and Bulgarian.

Choose the one you handle best and is the most comfortable for you to read in.

And yes!
All 6 languages are equally cost-free – precisely 100%.

 

 

4. Inspired by a true story

The plot is inspired by documented events from the mid-20th century. In the course of the story, they will be enriched with many legends, mysteries and puzzles, all of which derive from the beliefs of ancient peoples and ethnic groups.

 

 

 

5. Real places

All places where the action unfolds are absolutely real and exist to this day!

6. Graphics

We have created and chosen for our books special graphic visualizations with the aim of making you more fully part of the story.
Many of these graphics have another (secret) function which we cannot reveal here.

 

7. Piano soundtrack

The piano music you’ll hear as you read has been played and recorded by us personally for SEALED BOOK PROJECT.

Every single note, without exception!

Nevertheless, if you prefer to read in silence, the application menu contains an option for muting the sound.

 

8. Sound effects

To add further to the pleasure of the experience, we’ve created not only the piano music but also exciting sound effects which accompany some scenes in the story.

But even if your preference is really for reading in silence, just use the application menu to turn off the sound.

 

 

9. Intuitive approach

Everything in our applications is logically arranged and extremely easy to use, without the need to master any rules.

But just in case you need help, we’ve created a category with visualized explanations which you can browse, if you wish.

 

10. Special Extras

This place in the mobile applications is very important for us, because there we reveal what motivates us to make an even greater effort and create some additional and very special surprises.

If you’re curious about these unique extras, go to the category EXTRAS in the application, familiarize yourself with them and allow the magic to happen.

Contact us

If you want to write to us, with or without a specific reason, we’ll be thrilled to hear from you. For our part, we’ll do everything we can to write back shortly but please have patience if we’re a bit slow to answer.
This may happen for a very simple reason: at the moment our team has three members with only two of them able to write.
The third one, the two-year-old, has decided she first wants to learn to speak and only then to take up writing, which doesn’t help much, especially with the matter at hand. 🙂
We’ll be grateful to get a letter from you in ENGLISH, GERMAN or BULGARIAN.
For all other languages – we’re looking forward to when the third member of our team can start contributing but that’s likely to take some time. 🙂

Send us a message.
Tell us what you think.
