Narr8, the digital storytelling app we reviewed back in November of last year, has gotten a new update, letting users unlock new episodes with in-app currency, called NARRs tokens. These will are earned through daily use of the Narr8 app, and can also be purchased like other free-to-play games on the App Store. The first two episodes of each series are still free to download, of course. The new update also includes a new autoplay feature, letting users watch a continuous stream of downloaded episodes.
The first step in NARR8′s evolving business model was the introduction of NARRs tokens, which users accrued automatically by using the app each day. This virtual currency has helped users unlock exclusive collectible items associated with each series. Now, users can also buy “NARRs” to unlock new episodes.
Opening the app every day will accrue the full weekly bonus of 120 NARRs per week. The cost of one new episode will be 100 NARRs, which can be purchased for $ 0.99. Users can purchase bundles of 100, 300, 500, or 1000 NARRs for $ 0.99, $ 2.99, $ 4.99, and $ 9.99, respectively. Auto play for motion comics costs 100 NARRs.
