The third collection of Van Ryder Games’ Graphic Novel Adventures is now seeking funding via Kickstarter. Following on from the success of the two previous campaigns, GNA returns with five more books featuring all-new adventures. Become the star of a graphic novel, where text and graphics combine to create a visual sensory experience with the story shaped by the choices YOU make.

You’re going to need to put the kids to bed before you start playing Hold Up – it’s for mature audiences only. Go from the outhouse to the penthouse by robbing, tricking or killing whoever you need to in order to make it to the top.
In Pirates: The Cursed Isle the Captain has a map that leads to a secluded island where a strange curse has befallen its inhabitants. Left hopeless, they turn to you to find a way to lift the curse. Can you solve the mystery and survive the dangers of the island?

Ten years after the terrible Whitechapel murders, a killer strikes again. Is it the notorious Jack the Ripper or are we dealing with a copycat killer?
