While lead programmer Ben Britten is over in San Francisco for the GDC, Melbourne-based developer Tin Man Games’ founder Neil Rennison yesterday announced the launch of the fifth title in their epic Gamebook Adventure series called Catacombs of the Undercity. The new book is set to return the player to Orlandes City, the setting of the first book, however this time you will be exploring its dark underworld.

In the tried and true format of previous gamebooks Catacombs of the Undercity will use the same innovative dice rolling system for battles, and it will follow their tradition of having fantastic illustrations. Written by Andrew Wright this book is sure to be a great read and we highly recommend it.

Tin Man Games also announced their 6th book The Wizard of Tarnath Tor which is due in the next few months, as well as mentioning that they will have some news to announce next week at PAX East regarding their 7th book.

To celebrate the release of Catacombs of the Undercity Tin Man Games are offering a discounted price on the second and third gamebooks (The Siege of the Necromancer and Slaves of Rema) and also the new book for a week, lowering their price to US$2.99 (AU$3.99) so be sure to take this opportunity to grab them and try the Gamebook Adventures experience if you haven’t already. We will be giving away a code for Catacombs of the Undercity on Episode 7 of the DBG podcast, so be sure to listen for how to win!

Tin Man Games can be found on Twitter at @TinManGames and at their website. Gamebook Adventures are available on the iTunes App Store for iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad.
