Ok, I think Neil may be having too many warm british beers back in the UK, or maybe he is not getting enough sun, but he had a crazy idea today and we decided to go for it.

Gamebook Adventures: An Assassin in Orlandes, the first book of the GA series is now available for only $0.99.

What?!?

I know, right?

For $0.99 you get to try out one of the best gamebooks available for iPhone and iPod touch, and it is even universal so you can get the full iPad experience for only a dollar! Astute readers will note this is %80 off the normal price.

Insanity.

We want everyone who has even considered maybe possibly getting into the gamebooks to have a chance to try them out this holiday season. GA1 has been on the app store for just under a year, and it has been an excellent flagship for the entire GA series.

As Neil says in our promo:

We really love making gamebooks, we are really passionate about it! We want as many people as possible to experience our gamebooks!

Here we are, putting our money where our mouths are. We originally put Assassin on sale for $2.99 to match GA4: Revenant Rising release sale, but we decided that wasn’t good enough. We want everyone to try out our gamebooks.

Now is your chance, if you haven’t tried Gamebook Adventures but have been curious what all the fuss is about, give it a go!

Happy Holidays from Tin Man Games!

A freakin dollar!!!

  1. You guys are insane.

    In all seriousness, not a bad idea. Instead of having a free lite version, let people try the first book for the ridiculously low price of 99 cents. If that doesn’t get people to try it, nothing will. I bet that in most cases people who try An Assassin in Orlandes will buy the rest of the series.

  2. Yeah, we are not ready for the lite version yet, and we dont have the gamecenter stuff finished yet, and ’tis the season as well. We figured: what the hell.

    Sales haven’t been amazing, but decent. (and the holiday buying season is far from over, so still plenty of time 🙂 )

    Neil and I both take the long view on all of this. Our goal was never to make a single breakout hit that sold a crazy number then fell off the radar a few months later. Instead our goal was always to make good solid games that will be around for awhile and will eventually become ‘classics’ (hopefully 🙂 )

    Anyway, we just put GA4 on sale too, (tho for $1.99) because we got featured in the new and noteworthy on the Aussie game page.

    Cheers!
