Tin Man Games launches gamebooks into space

Tin Man Games understands that some people might not be into fantasy. The developer also understands that some people might not want to fork over their hard-earned cash for a game involving concepts they’ve never tried out before.

Enter: Gamebook Adventures 8: Infinite Universe, which handily deals with both these problems at once!

Gamebook Adventures 8: Infinite Universe

...step inside!

It’s the first in the Gamebook Adventures series to take on the worlds of science fiction – something fans have been demanding since Day One.

In the fourth millennium, the Mandellian Empire of the Tau Ceti system is at war with the rebel army known as DWORF. And lucky you have been chosen for a dangerous solo mission to kill or capture the rebel leader, through mind-bending loops of time and space. But wait a minute. Just who are you anyway? And how did you even get here? Such secrets you must uncover if you are to unlock your destiny…

…secondly, Infinite Universe breaks new ground from a business sense. It’s the first of Tin Man Games‘ gamebooks to be offered for free, supporting in-game purchases.

The initial download is the first 300 sections of Infinite Universe – more than enough to find your feet in the book and leave you wanting more. If you’d like, you can then pick up individual chapters (there are five), for US$0.99 each – or, if you know what you like, jump right in and unlock all of the remaining story for US$3.99.

How much is 300 sections? Neil Rennison, the Tin Man in charge of Creative Direction, explains that the company’s first gamebook release, An Assassin in Orlandes was a smidge more than 500 sections long, which should give you an idea of how much content is being given away for free.

Gamebook Adventures 8: Infinite Universe from Tin Man Games is currently available in selected App Stores, with others around the world to follow when the clock ticks over to February 28th.
