Set within Orlandes City itself, nobles are being systematically murdered by a ruthless assassin no-one seems able to catch. Finding yourself thrust in the middle of a large conspiracy, you must make decisions that may put yourself and one other most precious to you in great danger. Can you locate the Assassin in Orlandes before it is too late? 

What is a Gamebook Adventure? At their core, all of our gamebooks are compelling adventure stories where you get to choose how the adventure unfolds. Every section of the narrative concludes with choices that you have to make. The choices you make will alter the story, taking you down new paths and giving you new choices.

I love this gamebook series so much (bought GA6 and about to buy this GA1) I could cry! Hopefully Gun Dog will also be ported to PC soon. I've played the Lonewolf Saga for Android (a game of similar concept as GA), it was interesting but still far from GA's level of quality I really hope GA could take it over some day. Anyway, I'm an instant FAN! Thank YOU very much for making this.

I just bought this on a whim a couple of hours ago and love it. I had forgotten how much I missed the old choose your own adventure books. I just had to come back and pick up your other 6 games :) Any chance you are going to submit these to Steam Greenlight?

I just picked up the rest of the set that I was missing. I already had #2 and #6. Great game books. I miss the good old days of being a kid in the 1980s and playing the D&D "Pick Your Own Adventure" books and of course the best at the time was the Fighting fantasy books.

Games based on luck have a tendency to suck. Ruins the point of making choices, but then the choices have random consequences too, not being based on any knowledge or strategy...

I agree.
To be honest, I have only found the 'Choice of Games' franchise to be remotely enjoyable. I wish more choose-your-own-adventure games would do like them rather than this dice ****.

Could you please explain why is this game on Amazon 1$ without any discount, but 1.20€ with 70% discount. I'm just curious. The price is fair, but still, why the difference? Thanks!

It is actually on sale on amazon as well. It is just that the amazon dev portal doesn't have any notion of 'on sale' so all I can do is set the price and change the description a bit, but even then the amazon guys don't always publish it correctly, so I really have very little control over what our games show up as on amazon. They both have the same base price.

Oh boy, I can't even start to mention how Hyped I am to see Gamebooks coming back like this! I used to see my friends and read them back when I was a young boy, and when I was really starting to get into them and going to buy them, they simply ran out of circulation in my country. For many years I had been searching for a way to get them back or see any alternatives, and must say that with "Gamebook Adventures 1: An Assassin in Orlandes" I'm not disapointed. Having bought it just a few hours ago…
