Frankenstein, created with Inkle Studios, was one of the Guardian's apps of the year in 2013. In 2018 it received an update and redesign to coincide with the 200th anniversary of Frankenstein.

Following and adapting Mary Shelley's original text, Frankenstein is an interactive novel that places you right inside the story, acting as Frankenstein's confidant, guide and conscience.

The latest update has an extra chapter written by Fiona Sampson, whose biography of Mary Shelley was published by Profile in January 2018.
