Cubus Games - of Necklace of Skulls and Heavy Metal Thunder fame - wants €8,000 to make a new gamebook, with fantasy fiction veteran Dave Morris.

It's called The Frankenstein Wars, it's set in the 19th century, and it's all about Dr F's villainous plan to build an army of zombies to take on the British Empire. Like, when the British Empire was actually quite big.

You play as brothers Tom and Anton Clerval, as they work together (or against each other - that's up to you) to fight off the undead troops.


Like the Sorcery games, you'll explore a interactive map to reach your objectives. You'll also have to think about the weather, which can change events in the story, and the time as waiting around for too long will give your enemies more to prepare.

The game will hit iOS and Android. You can pitch in to the game's development (and reap lots of fancy backer rewards) here. The campaign's got a month to go, and has already marched past 10 percent of its goal.
