Visit the City of the Gods in Free Promotional Game
By: Wynn Mercere
Written in the style of a "choose your own adventure" game, players read along and select actions to take as the tale unfolds. Once they enter the Grand Pyramid, many possible fates await them depending upon their choices.
"I am always looking for fun ways to introduce new readers to the City of the Gods Universe. People relate better to a book series if they can imagine themselves in the story's setting. Sometimes that is hard to do in a fantasy world that has no connection to everyday life." Mercere hopes that the short game will show players that the novels in her series, which she co-writes with author M. Scott Verne, are intriguing and relatable.
The inspiration for "The Grand Pyramid of Egyptos" came from the creators' 2011 "Map Pack" role playing game supplement. "We had a small map in the book of the interior of the pyramid with labeled rooms. Using that as a launching point, I give readers a look inside the mystery of the pyramid."
Mercere's game may be played for free online on any platform by visiting http://textadventures.co.uk/
