Update: The book is now available on the Amazon Kindle for only $2.99!


I've been busy for the past few months working on a game for a book written by Richard Marsden. The game will be out within a few months but the book is out now:
http://www.travelingtyrant.com/

A great book and perfect for kids who need a book for a school book report. It's basically a dark humor sci-fi book.

I'll also throw in 5000 Viz to each person that buys a copy of the book.



"Mordid is the Traveling Tyrant, bent on conquering and pillaging the galaxy-for a price. When Galactic Hotels asks him to remove some pesky, religious zealots from the jungle-world of Pristine it seems to be an easy task. Unfortunately for Mordid, the preacher has a daughter, the Command Staff is out to murder him and each other, and the employer wants the planet intact. Will Mordid claim the planet, outsmart his Command Staff and get the girl, or is Paradisa Lost?"


If you have any questions regarding the book, please post them here.

What is the basic premise and is the name choice part of the humor? Also, how did you start making a game for a book before it was released?

I've been following the game development and the book and it's site some, and I have to say, the game looks awesome and I eagerly anticipate it, and the music on the site is very catchy and fun.

Rmarsden : Will the book be available for download on e-readers, for example ibooks or kobo for ipad?

Elara : The guy who wrote the book contacted me to make a game for it months ago.

This is from the website:
"Mordid is the Traveling Tyrant, bent on conquering and pillaging the galaxy-for a price. When Galactic Hotels asks him to remove some pesky, religious zealots from the jungle-world of Pristine it seems to be an easy task. Unfortunately for Mordid, the preacher has a daughter, the Command Staff is out to murder him and each other, and the employer wants the planet intact. Will Mordid claim the planet, outsmart his Command Staff and get the girl, or is Paradisa Lost?"



BTowns : Yeah the game has been a big project, I'll be posting a beta of the game sometime in the near future.

The description for the book sounds quite cheesy and cliched.

I read the first part of your post wrong. Several times. I thought it said, "A book I've been making for a game." I was thinking, "when the hell did he have time to write a book?"

Never knew you were making a game, though. Still, "when the hell did you have time to make a game?"

Lol yeah, at first I read it as you wrote a book. It's a little easier to understand now.

Anyways, this looks interesting. Coincidentally, I actually have a book report coming up in a week or so. Maybe I'll use this book.

Well I do certainly think that it is awesome that he contacted you to make a game for him. I hope that both the game and the book are a big success.

I guess I forgot about you doing freelance stuff. Making a game for it is rather great. What genre is it?

Hello!

Yes, the great man Davideo7 is making a game for the book, The Traveling Tyrant: Paradisa Lost.

Visit the website www.travelingtyrant.com and read Chapter I for free. This will determine if you like the book. On Kindle the book is only $2.99.

My hopes is the game will draw interest to the book and gather in all those who like action, humor and science-fiction.

Sorry, I hate reading books.  They sometimes give me headaches...literally.  I think that it sounds good, but I don't want to trust my mind cause I know nothing about this book.  When you upload the game whenever.  I will try it and I will see if it is worth reading.
