INTRODUCING EARPLAY PREVIEWS AND NEWS!
New in this version of Earplay are previews of upcoming stories! You can listen and try out a choice or two from long form Earplays that will be released very soon. In the news section, we plan to give you access to the people and processes behind Earplay. Soon we'll be streaming regular microcasts and inviting you to Earplay interactive audio committee meetings!

PUGMIRE (Preview)
In Eddy Webb's family-friendly fantasy adventure, dogs have inherited the world untold centuries after the Ages of Man. Some have learned to use the leftover technology, but they believe it to be magic handed to them by their lost gods. Others seek to create an ideal civilization, using a Code of Man compiled from ancient, fragmentary lore. The world is dangerous and mysterious, but good dogs will persevere.

CODENAME CYGNUS (Preview)
This is the Prologue chapter of the first ever voice-operated interactive audio story, a spy thriller where you play the secret agent. Originally launched in August 2013, eight chapters of the story have been released so far on mobile devices. Stay tuned, because we're planning to bring a new and improved version soon.
