Arcana Agency is a gamebook series in which you control three private investigators as they race to unravel the paranormal mysteries of 1930s New York.
Though in some ways similar to classic gamebooks such as the Choose Your Own Adventure or Fighting Fantasy series (which we don't own, by the way), Arcana Agency introduces innovative elements to interactive fiction. It is written in the third person, not the second, which is a departure from most gamebooks. Its expansive non-linear plot allows the player to control three detectives at once. Game mechanics blend seamlessly with the story, and the book's system of codewords – used to great effect in the Fabled Lands series (mentioned with permission) – allows a precise record of how the player affects the world. As such, the choices you make have real, long-term consequences – within each story, and in future Arcana Agency adventures.
