Gamebook Friday: Something to Celebrate

Here in the UK it's Brexit Day... but despite that, there's still something to celebrate today, and that is that the 5th anniversary collector's hardback of Alice's Nightmare in Wonderland is currently funding on Kickstarter. Not only that, but it has already funded!

When I originally crowdfunded and published the gamebook with Snowbooks back in 2015, I hadn't even considered turning the concept of re-imagining classics of literature as works of interactive fiction into a series. Since that time, of course, the series has developed, and has developed a particular look. But it has always bothered me that the cloth-bound, gold-embossed hardback produced for the original Kickstarter doesn't match the other ACE Gamebook special editions.

To rectify that, I am running a Kickstarter to fund production of a new collector's hardback, with a brand new cover design, that will match the dimensions of the other titles in the ACE Gamebooks series. And this is what it's going to look like.

There is only one reward on offer, and there are only 100 available. Once they're gone, they're gone!

Each collector's hardback will be individually numbered and signed, and will come with a special Queen Alice bookmark, on which you can record your game stats. Also, everyone who backs the Kickstarter will have their name appear in the Acknowledgements at the back of the book. There are stretch goals planned too.

Whether you're an avid collector of ACE Gamebooks, or someone who has never played through Alice's Nightmare in Wonderland before but always wanted to, then make sure you back the Kickstarter today, before it's too late!

In other Alice-related news, the Spanish language edition of Alice's Nightmare in Wonderland is now available from Argentinian RPG publisher, El Dragón Azul.
