Face Mayan Ghosts, Gods & Demons in Necklace of Skulls by Cubus Games
Introducing the new interactive novel from gamebook specialist, Cubus Games: Necklace of Skulls, an exhilarating quest into the far reaches of the ancient Mayan civilization. Written by Dave Morris (author of Fabled Lands and Virtual Reality), Necklace of Skulls has players enter a forgotten world where ghostly creatures roam free and demons are very real indeed. The game is now on sale for $2.99 on iOS and Android.
The sole survivor of an expedition brings news of disaster. The player’s twin sibling is lost in the trackless Western Sierra. Determined to find out what happened, the protagonist leaves the safety of home to embark on a quest through lost jungle cities, mountains and seas – even the depths of the underworld. If players are brave enough to survive the dangers of the spirit-haunted Western Desert, they must still confront the wizard Necklace of Skulls in a fight to the death . . . and for their very own souls!
“Gamebooks are awesome. I have fond memories of slugging through Choose Your Own Adventure- type books when I was a kid,” says Quim Garreta, co-founder of Cubus Games. “I’m also a fan of Dave Morris’ work. An engaging gamebook requires a great writer—and we were fortunate to work with Dave on the gamebook version of his mesmerizing tale.”
Necklace of Skulls follows the critically-acclaimed The Sinister Fairground and Heavy Metal Thunder gamebooks – also developed by Cubus Games. The studio has also created a free wallpaper app featuring high-quality art from Necklace of Skulls. The app is available for iOS and Android.
