Joe Dever’s famous Lone Wolf series of gamebooks was immensely popular. Not only did these two men make over 30 gamebooks, and later grant rights to have them freely published online, but they also created a really fun video game. It’s a really well done combination of book (lots of text and illustrations), multimedia video (narrated by Joe Dever!), and video game (skill tests and combat.
The third type is the adventure gamebook (examples of these are the Fighting Fantasy and Lone Wolf series of gamebooks), which combines the branching-plot novel with a simple role-playing system unique to the book (or series). In all gamebooks, the story is presented as a series of text sections. Branching-plot novel sections often run to several pages in length, whereas RPG and adventure.
You'll love any Lone Wolf gamebook if you're a determinist. I see Lone Wolf 29 has just been released, so Joe Dever is evidently a determined determinist. I'm going to buy it anyway because I'm a completeist (not a word). There was another Choose Your Own Adventure that deliberately looped and had no ending. I'm prescribing this for John as aversion therapy. Taxi! Reply Delete. Replies. Dave.The Lone Wolf Adventures Contains:Flight from the Dark Fire on the Water First Published: 1984 ISBN: 0-09-158930-4 My Thoughts: This is probably one of the nicest-looking gamebook releases ever. The first two books are reproduced exactly (though slightly enlarged) on high-quality paper in a sturdy hardback with the color map shared by both adventures on the back of the dust jacket.In this gamebook, the reader takes on the role of Lone Wolf, last survivor of the Kai order. Equipped with mystical and martial skills, you need to find your way through a world in turmoil to warn the king. The land has been overrun by the hordes of the Darklands, and one of the great pluses of the book is that it introduces the original array of creatures which populate Joe Dever's world.

Lone Wolf was notable as a gamebook series because it was the first one of its type (other than the notable Grailquest gamebooks) where the reader played a single character who grew more and more advanced over the course of the series. It was the first role-playing mega-campaign, and it has had a hugely influential effect upon the design of first-person fantasy computer games and MMO's.Read More
Before this happened, though, the series managed to spawn several spin-off books: The World of Lone Wolf, a four-gamebook cycle set in the southern part of Magnamund, the fantasy land in which Lone Wolf lives; The Magnamund Companion, a guidebook to all things Lone Wolf which includes a brief gamebook adventure; and Legends of Lone Wolf, a series of novels retelling the plotline of the first.Read More

Something like the first two Lone Wolf books would make great novels, even if you took out the game side. But something like Warlock of Firetop Mountain, the first Fighting Fantasy gamebook, would not. If you took out the game-ness of it, there wouldn't be much left. Let's take each of these in turn, looking at the novel aspect, and then the game aspect, understanding that gamebooks need both.Read More
The idea is that the software should be able to drive any Fighting Fantasy Gamebook, so long as the rules don't deviate too far from the basic system. It's just a question of adapting the books into the correct format. I have done this with several amateur gamebooks, Fighting Fantasy Project is the result.Read More
