Something oldie but goodie to read for the upcoming weekend
Gamebooks were all the rage several years ago before PCs were commonplace.I used to play gamebooks a long time ago before I had my first computer and the Lone Wolf series (now out of print) by Joe Dever was my introduction to the world of gamebooks.
Kudos to the volunteers of the Project Aon who have been creating HTML versions (English and Spanish versions available) of the Lone Wolf gamebooks since 2000 so that you can now play the books on the computer. 17 books (out of a total of 28) from the Kai, Magnakai and Grandmaster series have been are available for download together with other companion series such as the World of Lone Wolf series and assorted player tools. The Magnamund Companion, a background book on the world of Magnamund featured in the gamebooks.
The illustrations are available in the download packages but unfortuantely, the cover art are not.
The books are playable online with any browser or you can download them in zip or tar format, extract and click on toc.htm to start the game. Download them The books can be downloaded from Project Aon.Tags: Books
