App description: A choosable pathway, interactive RPG, digital gamebook! Zach Weinersmith + Wil Wheaton + Tin Man Games = AWESOME!

"You are a clone raised by the mysterious Silene Monks. Once the guardians of peace and justice in the galaxy, they have long since been superseded by modern technology. Now they spend most of their time hanging out and playing video games.

But you are not like the rest of your clone brothers. You have been chosen for a special destiny. Make the right decisions and you'll complete your training, explore a universe full of adventure, and prove yourself a hero. Make the wrong decisions and you'll be dead. Really dead. Its hard to emphasise just how dead you will be. So here's a pre tip for you: try to make the right decisions."

Written by Zach Weinersmith, creator of the hilarious award-winning comic strip 'Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal'.

You're a clone who sets out to find your place in a cold, uncaring, but also kickass and ridiculous futuristic world, solving challenging puzzles and fighting monsters along the way. It's like D&D for people who are too cool for other people!

PLEASE NOTE - Due to mature content this app is intended for readers who are 17+ only. It is not recommended for children.

Exclusive new features in the app:

Wil Wheaton voice over! Listen to Wil Wheaton whisper things like "love", "Plasmaster", "moral ambiguity", and "disappointment" into your ear.

An automated Adventure Sheet to keep track of stats and inventory.
Artwork gallery. Find an illustration in the gamebook and be able to access it full-screen forever.
Bookmarking system which saves your position in the gamebook, much like putting your fingers between the pages to remember your previous page when reading the paperback!

This is probably the funniest gamebook ever created. I've never laughed that much. While the combat is a bit more straightforward than the old gamebooks, the situations and the puns are amazing.
Get it people it's really axcellent! (I'm out!)

Jesus on a giant lizard!

I know the first one reduced a battle of wits from 3 to 2. So I assume that they are probably just balance tweaking the game, or fixing spelling errors and such.

I'm looking for an answer to this question too. Is this game as short as Sorcery?

I can't remember how long a play through of this is, I think its a bit longer than sorcery but I'd say the main draw here is the fact the whole book is voice by wil Wheaton and it's really funny.
If your after a long game book I'd suggest infinite universe as it's a huge game book in comparison to the rest, well it certainly took me way longer than the other books for a single play though.

Infinite Universe is sci-fi while the rest are fantasy, so if you like sci-fi, go for Infinite Universe. I had fun with it.

Trial of the Clones is Wil Wheaton, which is either a positive or negative depending on your opinion of him...
