. An innovative gamebook thriller in the form of a personal diary
. Readers can choose between trying to save the character or sending him to the largest imaginable number of deaths

Deadman Diaries is an introduction to gamebooks (popularly known as Choose-your-own-adventure), so the game has been designed to be quick and easy to read. Likewise, its authors say this story presents a contemporary black and neo-noir thriller drawing from referents like the cinema of Scorsese and the Cohen Brothers, and TV series such as The Sopranos, without ignoring the influence of the most classical cinema noir and the thrillers of James M.Cain and Patricia Highsmith.

Using the form of a personal diary, readers are immersed in the life of John Riggs, a bank worker who has to pay off a gambling debt that will lead him to different illegal, and often lethal, situations.

Readers are given different options and can choose between trying to save the character or killing him off in as many ways as possible.

Deadman Diaries is available in English, Spanish and Catalan.
