Do you like role-playing games like Dungeons & Dragons? How about Deadpool? Well if you like both of those, Marvel has just announced something that might be for you.
This May, the publisher is allowing you to break the fourth wall as they launch You Are Deadpool, a five-issue weekly interactive narrative miniseries from Al Ewing, Salva Espin and Paco Diaz. This series is said to let “readers control Deadpool’s story by rolling dice, keeping track of their scores, and making smart (or disastrous) decisions” and will feature various Marvel characters as guest stars as you follow Deadpool in an adventure through time.
“YOU ARE DEADPOOL is a five-part adventure gamebook in the classic tradition of FIGHTING FANTASY, LONE WOLF and DICEMAN — where YOU, and the cut-out-and-keep DEADPOOL DIE, control the action! Every week brings a COMPLETE single-player adventure — where you encounter glamorous guest-stars like HULK, GHOST RIDER, GRASSHOPPER, DAREDEVIL and ANOTHER GRASSHOPPER — that form an EPIC QUEST the like of which you’ve NEVER SEEN, unless you have!” teases series writer Al Ewing. “And there’s more! Fight END-OF-LEVEL BOSSES! Manage your inventory by STEALING background objects! Explore FIVE DIFFERENT TIME ZONES in NEARLY ANY ORDER! Play the TUTORIAL LEVEL! Enjoy UNIQUE MINIGAMES about BAR FIGHTS, BEAT POETRY and SNEAKING THROUGH LEVELS! LAUGH! CRY! CHEAT! It’s all waiting for YOU — because YOU ARE DEADPOOL!”
You Are Deadpool arrives in comic shops this May.
