Engage in the journey of the creation of the alphabet with Numberlys for iPhone and iPad

Numberlys is an interactive story about the origins of the alphabet from Moonbot Studios. In a world where everything and everyoone are named after numbers, five friends embark on a mission to create something different - the alphabet.

I just finished watching, reading, and interacting with Numberlys and it's a fantastic little story! The graphics are great and the narrator is just as awesome.
