Something's up in the Land of Destiny Quest

So I was looking up Destiny Quest on Amazon to see how many people had found my review of this great gamebook helpful (incidently, it was 3 out of 4 but that's not the big thing here.)

The interesting thing is that if you search for DestinyQuest on Amazon, you will get more than The Legion of Shadow, released Feb 2010.

You also get The Legion of Shadow to be released on March 2012.

So there's a second edition coming out?  What could this mean?

Michael has said in an interview that he originally wanted Destiny Quest to be a four act book.  He has also posted new quests on his website as a kind of expansion pack.  Is Michael deciding to put all of these extra materials into one big bumper gamebook?

But that's not all.  There is another release in the Destiny Quest range and that is Heart of Fire:  Destiny Quest Book 2.  Amazon says that it is set to release in September 2012.

This is great news.  Destiny Quest has received rave reviews (see below) from many blogs and magazines, including this one and this is a sign that there is loads more good stuff to come.

So we have something to look forward.  At the moment, we can only speculate about what is to come...

  2. Hi Billiam! Thanks for the comment.

    I will do another vlog. I enjoyed doing it although it took about seven goes before I managed to coherently say everything I wanted to.

    I'm also looking forward to the new Destiny Quest.
