Gamebook Friday: Warlock's Bounty

Some of you may have noticed earlier in the year that I was working on a new gamebook app. Well I can now reveal what it was I was working on...

By Emil Bakalinov

Available now from Attic Squad Games, a new concept in role-playing games.

Warlock’s Bounty

Are you a fan of interactive fiction or collectible card combat games? Then Warlock’s Bounty is the game for you. A brand new concept in gaming, Warlock’s Bounty combines strategic magic card combat with an involving, story-driven gamebook experience, written by one of the leading authors in the gamebook genre.

Book 1
By Jonathan Green

You are a mighty wizard, once apprenticed to the sorcerer Corax Whiteraven, guardian of the lands of Lloegyr. When Whiteraven’s familiar appears out of the blue carrying an urgent message from its master, you embark upon a mission that will test your mettle and magical abilities to the full. For Lloegyr’s guardian – the greatest sorcerer of them all – is in danger, and needs your help!
