Tin Man Games have ALL the announcements

Currently the guys over at Tin Man Games are running a bunch of gamebook reveals on their blog under their 12 days of gamebooks event. So far they've announced a bunch of great games, including the much speculated 80's gamebook series they teased not so long ago.

As well as having a new Judge Dredd gamebook and a sequel to An Assassin in Orlandes, the app developer has a tonne of other projects in the works, including Sagas of the Demonspawn, the 80s gamebook series, beginning with Book One: Fire*Wolf.

Not only that, they have also announced an interactive novel based on a Japanese dating sim, which will be called Shira Oka: Alice's Story, a spin-off of the Shira Oka games by Okashi Studios. This is relatively new territory for Tin Man and it's great to see they are expanding their repertoire with different genres.

Other gamebook announcements include The Spellcaster Trilogy, a series aimed at a younger audience and written by Melbourne based author Louisa Dent Pearce; and Gun Dogs, a brand new series by Lone Wolf co-creator Gary Chalk. This is part of the new Gamebook Adventures Masters line, which showcases veteran writers crafting interactive fiction in brand new worlds.

But that's not all! There are still five more announcements to go, so keep watching the Tin Man blog for more reveals.

Suffice to say, it's an exciting time to be a gamebook fan and it looks like there's going to be no stopping Tin Man Games in 2013. Roll on the New Year!
