We proudly announce our first book in the Gamebook Adventures fantasy series, An Assassin in Orlandes! Set within Orlandes City itself, nobles are being systematically murdered by a ruthless assassin no-one seems able to catch. Finding yourself thrust in the middle of a large conspiracy, you must make decisions that may put yourself and one other most precious to you in great danger. Can you locate the Assassin in Orlandes before it is too late?

  • Newly written story by S.P. Osborne that twists and turns taking the reader on an exciting adventure through the land of Orlandes. We are not simply a re-print of old gamebooks with each GA story lovingly crafted by experienced gamebook authors.
  • Easy to use interface with classic page turning. As easy as reading a book!
  • Dynamic page links that respond to your situation.
  • New gamebook rules and battle system unique to Gamebook Adventures. Rules are accessible at any time during the adventure if you need to refresh yourself.
  • Real-time 3D dice rolling with realistic physics. Shake the device like a dice shaker and watch the 3D dice bounce around the scene and off each other. Stop shaking and the dice will land giving you a result.
  • Easy to change fonts, font sizes, and paper type to set up the book the way you want it.
  • Accessible character sheet at all times during reading which auto updates when you pick up an item, your stats change, or you gain valuable information to help in your quest.
  • Use bookmarks to save your progress helping you get past tricky sections.
  • Achievements to collect throughout the book for those who wish to thoroughly explore all aspects of the story.
  • Beautifully illustrated by Pirkka Harvala. Once found, each illustration is framed and mounted on the achievements wall so they can be accessed full-screen!
  • Keep informed as the land of Orlandes grows. “Orlandes Uncovered” is a detailed history of the fantasy setting and will be updated at regular intervals giving you a rich and rewarding overall experience with the gamebooks.
  • Interactive world map which can be zoomed and scrolled. This will also be updated regularly as the details about the world unfold and expand.

Our aim is to give those nostalgic readers of old something new and fresh, and bring a new exciting experience to those unfamiliar with gamebooks.

  1. I loved this! I used to love those *choose your own fate books* but couldn’t really find many of them. I feel horrible to say that I didn’t purchase this app “legally” at first because I was unsure if it was worth the asking price. After a few minutes of gameplay, I’ll admit you sold me! Exactly what I was expecting! My only complaint is this. I don’t like how you can only place 3 -10 bookmarks. That’s really annoying. What I loved about the boom was you could go back as many times as you needed to. 😀 overall , great job! I will be purchasing book 2!

  2. I was at Pax East and saw this game running on a Kindle Fire. I own a Kindle and not the iPad but this book does not show up on the Kindle apps store.

    I would love this book but I can’t buy it if I can’t buy it.

  3. Hi Greg! Yes you are correct, we did have it running on a Kindle Fire. We currently do not have it available on the Amazon Marketplace although you can download the gamebook through Google Play. Hope that helps! Thanks for stopping by.

  4. […] My lessons with the adolescent learner usually involve playing, talking, and often writing, about an epic action adventure game, named ‘Assassin’s Creed: Revelations’, as well as reading a digital gamebook, entitled ‘An Assassin at Orlandes’. […]
