If love Choose Your Own Adventure books and comics, then this is right up your alley! Knights Club: The Bands of Bravery is originally a French creation that has been brought to the United States by Quirk Books. It is an interactive tale that focuses on letting you decide how your character progresses through the adventure provided. Your choices dictate the success or demise of these characters, much like a tabletop roleplaying game, but without all the dice or other humans involved.
If it’s not obvious by the title and description, Batman: Super-Villains Strike is a children’s book, but that doesn’t mean that it’s not completely and utterly awesome. I mean, any book that starts off with the phrase, “You are Batman,” is a book that has already won my heart.
Batman: Super-Villains Strike is a choose-your-own adventure book, which if you don’t know what that is, it’s a story that varies based on the decisions you make at the end of each chapter, which can result in success, stalemate, or death traps. The story in this book specifically kicks off when Batman (you – still awesome) find traces of Catwoman stealing some very expensive items. When you start to track her down, however, you realize that there is no way it could actually be Catwoman because you locked her up in Arkham Asylum previously. This theme starts moving along (as long you make the right choices) to reveal the same scenarios with Poison Ivy, Mr. Freeze, and The Riddler, as well.
As fun and funny as that was, we may now have one that may top it for some. George A. Romero‘s classic 1968 zombie film, Night of the Living Dead, laid the foundation for all things zombie, and unless you haven’t noticed, it created a pop culture monster…quite fittingly. Still, the movie is part of the public domain, which means no one really owns it and anyone can have their way with it. Enter Editing the Dead, a dissection and reconstruction of the movie that allows you to choose what you’ll do next while trying to escape the hungry zombies. Unlike the Twilight game above, this uses the actual film, making it a must see/must play for anyone who loves Night of the Living Dead or zombies in general!
You can head on over to the other side now to “Start the Experience” and see how you fare. Oh, and it does help a bit if you’ve seen the movie. You don’t want to become zombie food now…do you?
