REDLAND, Dry District by Amencodai and Ila Ma'arof. A Project Under Publishing



A boy on a quest to save his village from a group of evil people who are determined to destroy it.

REDLAND, Dry District tells a story of how a group of evil people takes control of a village and slowly starts to destroy it by distributing contaminated water to the villagers. A village boy realizes this and embarks on a mission to thwart the evil plan and find clean water supply. His mission becomes even more critical when more villagers fall sick and die. He must work fast before the whole village is wiped out.

REDLAND, Dry District is a graphic novel application for the iPad. Each chapter contains 30 pages. REDLAND, Dry District is essentially about raising awareness of the environment. It is also an age-old story of greed, human cruelty and destruction, with dire consequences for all. The intention is to have readers wondering and asking themselves "What if REDLAND, Dry District really happens?"

Your support for the "REDLAND, Dry District" app project will encourage other youths to get started on their dreams and pursue their passion and goals, especially in comics!

If this project succeeds in raising funds, REDLAND, Dry District may just be the first graphic novel app in Malaysia. And of course, all you pledgers get awesome rewards in return! :)
