Greetings! Like a lot of you I remember playing some gamebooks as a youngster, but hadn't seen (or thought) about them for many years. A couple years ago I caught wind of Project Aon and it got me back into Gamebooks with the Lone Wolf series. Then I got an Ipad where I have played the Fighting Fantasy conversions (not so great app), Fabled Lands (so-so app) and the Gamebook Adventures series (Really great apps).
So when I heard about this real honest-to-god new published gamebook I ordered it right away.
What is up with availability in North America? Lots of gamebook fans here too! It took a month to get to me. It was worth the wait though.
I'm having a blast so far, though I am still in Act I. I've died several times and I really like the save-your-spot and come back later approach your book takes. Sitting on my desk with my dice, character sheet, and gamebook really takes me back.
Good luck on the next in the series, I'll be playing eagerly in the meantime.
