Down Among the Dead Men

The great folks behind 80 Days and Sorcery! have released a new interactive book full of piratey goodness. Down Among the Dead Men has you take on the role of a magician, a thief, a pirate, or a governor's daughter in disguise among a seafaring crew. There's some curses involving the undead here too. You'll have the choice to be nice, fair, or full-out evil, with the text changing and narrative branching off depending on your decisions.

The whole story includes over two thousand decision points and 125,000 words, so there's lots to chew on here for a buck. Inkle's gamebook engine is fantastic and they're finding some really high-quality writers to publish.
