DFAT has been a fan of Cubus Games for a long time now, the Heavy Metal Thunder games were some of the best gamebook experiences I have ever had. Growing up I was a huge fan of the “Choose Your Own Adventure” books and gamebooks are the perfect present day iteration. Well Cubus has been working on a project for a couple years now entitled The Frankenstein Wars and it looks to take many different aspects of classic literature and history and mash them up into an awesome fictional adventure! Here is the official synopsis from Cubus Games:

“The Frankenstein Wars” is a raw, epic, story-driven blockbuster about two brothers who long guarded the secret to Victor Frankenstein’s resurrection technology… until the end of the Napoleonic Wars. You direct both Tom and Anton Clerval, through a branching, non-linear storyline set in revolutionary France with a backdrop of hellish war with the soul of humanity at stake – and you decide if the brothers become allies, or enemies. “The Frankenstein Wars” takes the heritage of Mary Shelley’s universal horror classic and combines it with some of the most outstanding historical figures such as Ada Lovelace or Napoleon Bonaparte. Immerse yourself in the 19th century thanks to the soundtrack with a neo-classic twist, explore beautiful maps, decide the fate of Europe (and the known world) and enjoy this compelling and powerful adventure gamebook beautifully crafted. Discover this gameplay meets-story with the sweep and scale of a whole alternate-history universe. Never before will the consequences of your decisions be so dramatic and momentous in an adventure gamebook!

The Frankenstein Wars is due out on June 1st for for iOS and on June 8th for Android!!
