Remember the days before Tomb Raider? Ian Livingstone didn’t know his Eidos from his elbow. But he did write some incredibly popular books. Along with Steve Jackson the pair made a fortune writing books where the reader made the important decisions – run or fight, help or hinder, that sort of thing. Well now someone has picked up the idea and has produced interactive books that can be read on a variety of internet enabled devices-including the DS and Wii.
Writer Darren Reid has written a prequel to his best selling series The Chronicle of the Shadow, as well as a prequel to the Wizard of Oz. They intend to have quite a few releases over the coming months, including some classics such as Around the World in 80 Days. Now you can tell people that playing on the Wii is a cultural experience ;o)
