WORM GNOSIS, an interactive comic book
Worm Gnosis is an interactive comic book that allows you to make decisions that will affect to the story.
Worm Gnosis is an interactive comic book by Boris Ramírez. In it, the reader will take the role of the main character and go on an adventure whose development (and ending, therefore) will be determined by the decisions and actions taken over the course of the story. With a plot and setting clearly influenced by Lovecraft's Mythos and tales, the readers will dive in a fantastic and chillingly fun adventure in which they will unravel mysteries and confront dark forces and enemies from this world and from others.
Worm Gnosis follows the trail of the classic "choose your own adventure" books from the 80s where the reader was an active participant. This genre draws directly from board games and role-playing games that are once again back in the menu nowadays.
It will be published in hard cover format, 8.8" x 11.6" (22.5 x 29.5 cm), full color, and will have 72 pages. Available in English and Spanish.
It is not meant to be read like a regular comic book. Normally, when you finish a page, you will turn to the next one and so on, but not in this case. The process is very simple and intuitive, and as you advance in the story you will continuously receive indications on how to proceed. It works as follows: each of the panels will have a number on the upper left corner. These numbers will guide you, and the order of them will be determined by your decisions. There will come some moments when, by the end of the panel you are reading, you will be given the number of the next panel you have to read. This way, you will often have several options to proceed, or certain events will take you to certain panels. If by the end of a panel you are not told to go to a specific panel, you will have to continue reading as you would in a regular comic book, moving on to the next logical panel or turning the page as usual.
