New Gamebook Released… In Italy

Once again, I wish I could read Italian. Gaming guru Andrea Angiolino and aerospace historian Gregory Alegi have teamed up to write Il Gobbo Maledetto (“The Damned Hunchback”). In this solitaire World War II gamebook, the reader gets to take control of a Siai Marchetti S.79, the unusual-looking plane nicknamed Il Gobbo Maledetto, and fly a mission against the British. The whole thing is illustrated with historical photos and offers a different perspective on a familiar conflict. An English-language release seems unlikely, but if you happen to know of an interested publisher, it could probably be arranged (and my curiosity could at last be satisfied).
