Warhammer Wednesday: Return to the Herald of Oblivion!

I am delighted to be able to report today that my Warhammer 40K Path to Victory adventure gamebook Herald of Oblivion is set to return, this time as a downloadable app.

But that's not all... Herald of Oblivion is the first title in the newly conceived Legacy of Dorn Trilogy, which places the player within a vast choice-based adventure novel, written by Yours Truly.

Tin Man Games are using their critically acclaimed Gamebook Adventures Engine to bring the 41st millennium to life, replacing the paper book with an interactive computer terminal where players choose their path through the adventure. The original dice combat (which was always the book's weak point) has also been replaced with an exciting first-person turn-based combat system.

When you play the app, your phone, tablet or computer, turns into an Imperial Cogitator. Not only will you be manipulating the archive of Brother Nabor’s mission, but when you encounter the myriad of life-forms aboard the eponymous space hulk, the cogitator turns into a holographic combat simulator which brings the player face-to-face with the xenos horrors!

Legacy of Dorn : Herald of Oblivion will be available to download from the iOS App Store, Google Play and Amazon Appstore for Android at the end of September 2015. It will also be available on Steam and the Humble Store later in the year. Two sequels, Pits of Commorragh and Forge of War, are planned for release in 2016.
