Nice one! I had this book as a kid. Will the CYOFA engine be available anywhere?

The screen scroll happens because the story choice options are pushing text off the top. Even a simple “press any key” where there’s a lot of text will mitigate that.

If you find anything like that, feel free to PM the steps to repeat the issue so I can patch the book file for the eventual collection release.

There's a number of formatting errors unfortunately. One page runs off the screen before you can read the top of it. Another has newlines where they shouldn't be. There's one spelling error too. Nice idea though. I always wanted to computerize the Fighting Fantasy books.

It's a new engine for running gamebooks. The gamebook it's running in this release is a classic from the 1970s.

Nice plot. The Water Moon with its huge waves seems to be similar to the one from The Passengers ;)

Does this game use any existing text adventure engine?
