So the second draft of our Choose your adventure story Napoleon Stone and the Army of Set is complete. I’m now working with the story’s writer (Richmond Clements) and our gamebook guru ( Antony McGarry-Thickitt) to put some final touches on the enemy encounters before we can start doing some playtesting (can’t wait)!
The plan will be to release the book later this year in print. I’m also looking to a way to make an interactive version of the book that people can play-through online.
I know, I know it’s been a while since you’ve heard from the Unseen Shadows crew but rest assured the team have beavering away on several projects. First up is the news that we now have an artist for our Choose your own adventure story Napoleon Stone and the Army of Set.
The story has been written by Richmond Clements (Historia, Operation Solomon) who will be joined by his Historia artist Alex Moore who is getting her teeth stuck into the project as I type.
Here’s the first look at some early sketches from Alex. I reckon this is going to be my new wallpaper!
I was a huge fan of Alex’s work on Historia and more than a little excited by seeing what she’s doing even at this early stage.
The finished book will be available both in digital and printed form.
The moment I read my first choose your adventure book I was hooked. I first started out on with a few Indiana Jones adventures before moving on to the fighting fantasy books by Ian Livingstone. So when Richmond Clements approached me at the start of the year about doing a mini choose your own adventure for the enigmatic Professor Napoleon Stone I had already replied with a big yes before I had finished reading his email.
