There is something about the idea of trying to survive a zombie apocalypse that never gets old. Whether the appeal lays in being free to loot stores, living free from the constraints society places on us, or simply being forced to invoke your inner undead slayer, we never seem to grow tired of imagining running for our lives, fending off feral survivors and bashing in brains.
Bottom line: Good zombie fiction continues to be read. As for great zombie gamebooks, well that’s even better!
That’s why we at GBN were delighted to learn that James Schannep, author of the Click Your Poison 6 book series, is planning a 10th Anniversary Illustrated Collector’s Edition of INFECTED, his zombie apocalypse gamebook.
This special printed edition will be a hardcover, with all-new content that is available for the first time, including:
- An interactive, author foreword.
- New cover art and illustrations throughout .
- A sample from the original “Infected” screenplay that inspired the book.
- A flowchart story map to help you navigate the apocalyptic wastelands.
Additionally, there is a book club discussion guide and suggestions for how to make the book a game to play with friends!
If any GBN readers are unfamiliar with INFECTED, here is a blurb from a current edition:
You, Dear Reader, are the main character of this story. Live, die, and rise again based solely on the merit of your own choices. Each link represents a choice, and there’s no going back, so choose wisely.
Everyone has their plan; what they’d do to survive if and when the zombie apocalypse happens. Now you can see how you’d hold up against the legions of undead—without needing to call the CDC because crazed bath salts users are trying to eat your face off.
3 Unique Storylines. Over 50 Possible Endings. Just one question… Will YOU Survive the Zombie Apocalypse?
INFECTED 10th Anniversary Illustrated Collector’s Edition is available now at Amazon.
