Hobbit Website, Journey through Middle-earth

Hobbit Website, Journey through Middle-earth

Posted by Rainey

In case you missed it like I did, the new Hobbit website is amazing, gorgeous and a blast to explore.  After getting through the title screen, a map appears to explore.  I remember pouring over the map in the back of the Hobbit as a boy, tracking Bilbo’s adventures. Places on the map can be explored in further detail and include a mix of elements to interact with. Pages scroll horizontally and full screen video clips come to life as they pass through the viewport.
