Temple of the Spider God, the 7th title in the Gamebook Adventures series by Melbourne-based developer Tin Man Games has gone live on the iTunes App Store today.

Tin Man Games have partnered with renowned gamebook writer Jonathan Green who is best known for his work with the Fighting Fantasy gamebook series, as well as Star Wars and Doctor Who books. The Gamebook Adventures series are a combination of choose-your-own adventure style books mixed with RPG elements such as hit points and dice rolls. Interspersed throughout the book are numerous fantastic illustrations, and your journey throughout the story is accompanied by a great soundtrack.

Tin Man Games have completely overhauled their gamebook technology for the seventh title in the series to add more flexibility for future projects. One of those projects involves a collaboration with print-based role-playing book publisher Greywood Publishing to work with the legendary gamebook illustrator Gary Chalk. They will work with Gary to create an entirely new world for a new series of gamebooks called Gun Dogs, the first of which will be released in 2012.

Temple of the Spider God has a normal price of $4.99 but for a limited time to celebrate it’s release it is available for only $2.99, and Tin Man Games have also discounted the prices on all of the other six gamebooks as well. Having played 4 of the 7 gamebooks (and keen to try the new one) I can definitely recommend that you pick up at least one to try because they are extremely well written and riveting to play.
