Here’s the answers to all your questions.
Q: I don’t get it, what’s a gamebook? And how do you click links in a book?
A: Whoa, whoa, whoa, one question at a time. First, in a gamebook you get to decide how the story progresses; it’s a much more active reading experience than a traditional novel. And second, as an ebook, you don’t have to flip around to whatever page to learn your fate–you simply click to it. To learn more about gamebooks, try here.
Q: Why “Click Your Poison”? Why not call it a “Choose Your Own Adventure” if that’s the genre?
A: Choose Your Own Adventure® is now a registered trademark of Chooseco, LLC, and is not associated in any way with Click Your Poison™ books. The genre for both is “gamebook.”
Q: Is this only available as an ebook? What if I don’t have an ereader?
A: If you’re reading this on a webpage (and odds are no one printed this off for you), you can read MAROONED. There are apps you can download to read kindle books on your PC, phone, whatever. BUT! It’s also available as a paperback, so fret not. The technologically-averse can Flip Your Poison.
Q: I found a decision loop!
A: Good for you. Also, that’s not a question. But seriously? I give you the power to explore the multiverse, to leap across parallel universes, and you use it to replay two decisions back-to-back on an endless loop? Real cool…
Q: Isn’t there something similar to this already out?
A: Is there? I couldn’t find anything. But then again, parallel development does happen.
Q: Where are all the handsomely roguish pirates? Why can’t I swoon for Johnny Depp?
A: They’re in the movies, where they belong. And I’m stopping you; swoon away. These pirates are intended to be more grounded in reality and history.
