The choose-your-own-adventure-style series, currently 28 titles strong, allows readers to participate in the story by making plot choices. Forge Reply and Atlantyca Lab, which owns the Lone Wolf IP, plan to develop a new digitorial (digital plus editorial) adaptation of the series that will combine interactive text with 3D combat scenes and puzzles.
The “Lone Wolf” mobile gamebook will be based on a new story by Dever that will follow Lone Wolf, a cadet in a monastic order of warriors, as he defends his home from the forces of evil embodied by the Darklords of Helgedad.
Atlantyca and Forge Reply plan to debut the mobile game in October 2013.
“Joe Dever’s Lone Wolf series of gamebooks have long been an international success and have earned him a rightful place as one of Britain’s most imaginative fiction writers,” says Pierdomenico Baccalario, managing director, Atlantyca Lab. “But he is also a wonderful game designer with several bestselling computer games to his credit. We are honored and excited to be working with him and Forge Reply on this new Lone Wolf story, especially as it will be told in a truly innovative way.”
