The app will be available for a range of platforms; from Apple’s App Store for the iPhone, iPad and even iPod Touch, via Amazon for the Kindle Fire and Google Play for Android. A PC version of the game-book will be available later on Steam as well.
Richard Morgan’s worked with computer games before; having had writing duties for Crysis 2 and the 2012 update of Syndicate for EA.
Morgan told press;
I’m extremely excited about this collaboration on A Land Fit For Heroes as a game-book. It’s a fresh format of storytelling for the trilogy and one I’m really looking forward to developing with Liber Primus Games over the coming months.
The original paperback game-books are Choose Your Own Adventure (CYOA) style games like Fighting Fantasy. The format has had a digital revival with interactive books like SOL INVICUS offering up sound effects, character sheet management and dice.
The A Land Fit For Heroes game-book app is said to be aimed a more mature audience as to better capture and explore the dark adult themes and characters in the trilogy.
