Turn a Stornaway interactive video into an App - with no coding!

Did you know that you can make an interactive video into an App that you can sell on App Stores, using our amazing no-code plugin?

Whatever you’re making in Stornaway – a live action game, training experience, branded content – you can also easily export it as a downloadable App to play on iOS, Android, PC, Mac, Quest VR, Smart TVs and even game consoles.

With our newly released plugin (in beta), you can open your interactive Stornaway project inside the Unity game engine (without having to know Unity) and then follow a few simple steps to package it up as an App.

Our easy to follow interactive video will take you through these simple steps at your own pace.

Then you can take your App and monetise it or let people download it for free: offer it on the Apple App Store, Android Play Store or the Steam games store, add it to your website or intranet for download, or even submit it to the PlayStation, Xbox or Nintendo Switch console stores.

So however you choose to reach your audience, this plugin will enable you to take this amazing step from story creation through to app development – without ever touching a line of code.

The plugin is currently in private beta, and is available to Premium plan users. Please contact us for access.

The Gallery - Paul Raschid used Stornaway to Create his interactive film

The first major interactive feature film created in Stornaway.io, “The Gallery”, produced by Aviary Studios, will be released on multiple platforms and as a live interactive experience in cinemas later this year. The Gallery will be the first interactive feature film to be released in theatres at the same time as to Xbox, Playstation, Switch, Steam, iOS and Android.

“Stornaway has completely revolutionised our way of working, saving time and money and allowing me to put more budget onscreen.” The writer-director of “The Gallery”, prolific interactive filmmaker Paul Raschid, is already working on his next interactive film.

Aviary Studios have been working with our team at Stornaway.io to develop their workflow for delivery from Stornaway.io via Unity to these platforms.

This collaboration has enabled us to create this amazingly powerful and incredibly simple plugin. Therefore helping to pave the way for future creators wanting to do the same, across all industries.
