Gamebook Adventures: Slaves of Rema


Blogger J P Barnett said...

Hi Jonathan,

These ITouch gamebooks are really coming along now. It can't be anything but good news for gamebook writers, I'm hoping; a new era of gamebooks for a new generation.

I may be showing some ignorance here, but to my knowledge, you haven't written a gamebook series of your own, set in a world/land created by yourself. Is this something that you envisage doing at some stage?

I write gamebooks myself, and have one published. I like to experiment with different gamebook mechanics, in an attempt to find something "new" that works well.

I haven't really picked up any of the recent FF titles for many years now, but have recently put on hold at my local library, what I think is your most recent work, Night of the Necromancer. I'll be interested to see what it is like. I want to check out Howl of the Werewolf at some stage too, as I have been hearing many comments from others that it rivals Creature of Havoc as the greatest FF. That would be an achivement as Creature of Havoc, in my opinion, took gamebook writing to a new level.

Anyway, thanks for your time.

Hi Jasan

Thanks for your post and apologies for my *very* tardy reply.

You're quite right - I haven't written my own gamebook series yet, although before I wrote my first Fighting Fantasy title I had written to Puffin asking if they'd like to publish a new series of gamebooks. ;-)

Congratulations on having your own gamebook published. You should check out Night of the Necromancer and Howl of the Werewolf - I'm very proud of both of them, and both have been very well received.

I look forward to hearing what you think of them.

Best wishes
