Simon, a good friend of mine, wrote a gamebook in the style of the Fighting-Fantasy and Fabled Lands-Books (if you are not common with that: sort of a Choose-your-own-adventure-book with some simple RPG-Rules). The Story is set in an alternate reality of medieval Japan which is inhabited by human-size quails. Similar to an Animal-Fantasy-Story like the Redwal-Books. Or for a newer example: the Mouse-Guard-Comics. The book contains over 800 sections. You can become a samurai, a monk, an ninja, a scout or a sorcerer.
Beeing a Fan of Fighting-Fantasy too, I accepted to do the coverart. On my deviantart-account ( davidstaege.deviantart.com/gal ) you can watch the creation of the cover. Please note also Simon's account (blacksimon92.deviantart.com/). Simon did all the interior illustrations in a fine pencil-style.
The first version of the gamebook was handwritten. Then Simon transfer it to an Open-Office-file. When I joined the project I suggest to copy the whole book into Twine to check all the links. Twine was very helpful, and I can luckily say that there are now no broken links or lost passages in the book. Long live Twine and his creator!
I worked with Version 1.3.5. Well, that is long time ago isn't it? I dind't check the development of Twine while I was working with it (it took a long time). Sometimes I thought Twine was forgotten. But I am even more happier to see that it has grown to a big community of fans and developers! So long live this community to!
Back to the topic: I recently finished the work on the cover and now we are ready to print it via Print-on-Demand-Service. We like to credit Twine, his creator and this community on the imprint. Without Twine the correction of this book wouldn't have been so easy.
Are you feeling comfortable with that?
With kind regards
