Out at midnight: Down Among the Dead Men is a pirate-themed gamebook from 80 Days maker Inkle, for iPad and iPhone
Yo ho ho
Down Among the Dead Men is a piratical gamebook from Inkle that's just popped up on the New Zealand App Store. That means it should be out in the UK from midnight tonight.
It's a more traditional gamebook adaptation than the developer's last outing, the Gold Award-winning 80 Days, but it still adds some swashbuckling finery to proceedings. You might be reading a book, but your screen is adorned with sand, sea, and skulls all the same.
Interestingly the game was made before Sorcery!, but some red tape has held it back from hitting the App Store. That red tape is now snipped, and you can experience the tale of the dread pirate Skarvench from the safety of your iPad or iPhone.
And best of all, the game is surprisingly cheap. If you want to get your hands on Down Among the Dead Men, it'll set you back just 69p / 99c when it lands on the App Store later today. It's definitely worth that.
