This actually looks great. I might actually get this once it's out.

Well this is pretty cool, I've tried I pogoing through twice so far and died both times
It's what you'd expect from tin man games, a very polished and well put together choose your own adventure book, this one doesn't seem to have any dice, combat or inventory from what I've seen so far but I might be wrong as I have died early on both times
Looks more like a old school choose your own adventure where it was just about the story and you didn't have to carry a pen/paper and dice with you
Type of book you can read anywhere.
I guess you know what your getting in for here, if you like choose your own adventure books then this is for you.
Not sure what else to say because all tin man games books seem to be awesome.

Cheers to Matt Youngmark and Tin Man Games; definitely getting this.

Over 100 different endings means this is going to have some good replayability

Default Love the Book

I've had the book for a while now and loved it. If you like CYA games, this one should be an easy pick up.

Anyone know if $2.99 is the launch price or regular price? I see the majority of their other games are priced higher. Would like to pick it up but have a handful of other CYOA type games I need to get through. But if this is the launch price then I will buy now and read later.

Short answer is I don't know, but since it's more of a tried and true CYA w/o dice ET ALL it may be safe to assume this is the price. But, it's your call...
