  • Contour 1.1 ($50) is a story development tool that can help with the process of turning a movie idea into a full outline. The software uses a fill-in the-blanks approach where the user is asked series of questions on topics like loglines, the protagonist's growth and the beats to be used in each of four acts. The update has added new sample content and allows users to enter Contour XML files form the File menu. Version 1.1 also includes several small interface enhancements and bug fixes.

  • Rectangle Tetris 3.0 ($5) is a game that takes a spin on the classic game of Tetris by introducing a dice roll. The game begins with a grid of nine by seventeen boxes, two dice are then rolled and the values become the length and width of a rectangle. The player then selects a location to place the rectangle and continues to repeat the steps until there is no extra room. The goal is to fill in the entire grid leaving no empty boxes. Version 3.0 includes a new interface that features a score slider and improved graphics. [Download - 1.2MB]
