'Choose Your Own Adventure' Franchise Returns, On Tablets
Chooseco, the company behind the CYOA, is back and working to release “Choose ‘Toons”, or animated choose-your-own-adventure stories, on tablets. The team is looking to raise $130,000 on Kickstarter.
Choose 'Toon starring you and Gus the Robot
“Choose 'Toons are interactive cartoons based on the best-selling titles of Choose Your Own Adventure books for younger readers,” reads the pitch. “They are aimed at children ages 5-7. Our first episode is based on the title Your Very Own Robot, where YOU put together a robot named Gus out of discarded parts from your parents' robot lab.”
Wouldn’t you know it--Gus gets into a lot of trouble, and the story has 20 branches with 11 potential endings and half an hour of animation. Chooseco is hoping to turn Choose ‘Toons into a series.
Pledge levels start at as little as $1, so if you want to support the new adventure, go for it; what happens is up to you.
