I think it's safe to assume that a fair number of people still enjoy choose-your-own adventure stories. Otherwise there wouldn't be so many of them in book stores and gamebooks wouldn't be much of a thing on the App Store. But what if you want to make your own choose-your-own? Well, that's what Wunderverse is here for.

Liber Primus Games has announced they will be releasing the next chapter of their action-adventure story, Narborion Saga Book II: The God of Orcs in March.

The story, written by Sylvia Finali and Dr Tom Pollak (former editor-in-chief of Dragon magazine), will remain in the fantasy genre but will use a whole new game engine called SagaScribe. This will let readers have more customizable options and features. Players will also be able to scan an image of their table top figurine into the game and have more options for character creation, spell crafting and arena fight training.

There's a lot to look forward to, really. If you haven't checked out the original Narborion Saga, you can download it for free on the App Store.
