ROMEO AND/OR JULIET: the sequel to To Be or Not To Be!
This is the official announcement of the new book, and you (beloved Kickstarter backers) are the first to get all the details. We actually made our book description on Amazon purposely obscure, so that nobody would get the full scoop before you did.
There's LOTS more to announce in the coming months - you'll be getting the inside track on that as well - but here are the deets:
- It is called Romeo and/or Juliet
- It is a choose-your-own-path version of a play you may have heard of called "Romeo And Juliet" by one "William Shakespeare"
- It is coming out in only a few months, on June 7th, 2016!
- Like To Be or Not To Be, each ending will be illustrated by tons of terrific artists - even more than last time!!
- Unlike To Be or Not To Be, Romeo and/or Juliet (incredibly!) has MORE choices, MORE links, MORE story, MORE playable characters, and MORE ways to die!
- also, waaaaay more ways to SMOOCH
- It's being published by a major publisher (Riverhead books, a division of Penguin), which means this book should be available EVERYWHERE :0
- ahhhh I'm SO EXCITED
- what if I gave you a list of all the artists involved?
- what if I did that??
So great! More illustrations means more artists, and I've gathered them from online and in print, from comics, animation, illustration, and more. I can't wait to share more of what these people - who I am not afraid to call THE GREATEST ARTISTS WORKING TODAY - produced. For the list here I chose just one each artist's works, but I'm betting you'll recognize them from all sorts of things!
