The Vortex

The Vortex

Multiple File Formats

To save the world from being consumed by an alien technology that you inadvertently unleashed, you must use your wits, cunning, and of course... your ereader!  In this exciting universe, you are the hero.  You direct the lead character as your avatar in exploring the mysteries of an alien race as you attempt to discover the source of immense technological power while trying to correct the cause of the destructive events unfolding around you.

The Vortex combines classic elements of both Text Adventure games and Choose Your Own Adventure books to provide an interactive quest that is sure to entertain.  Like a CYOA this interactive novel is decision driven, however, the navigation and exploration of the virtual world are clearly rooted in the traditional Text Adventure style of game play.  This is a gamebook where your actions as well as your ability to solve mysteries through deduction are the keys to survival.  The Vortex provides you with a location oriented environment that you move through encountering puzzles and obstacles that actually require you to carefully observe and think your way through.  This is a work of modern interactive fiction designed for today’s eReaders and tablets.

Let the Adventure Begin...

Available in ePUB (nook, Sony, Kobo, ereaders) and MOBI (Kindle) formats

Editorial Reviews

Demian Katz of "I had a great time with this book..." "I'm definitely looking forward to the next entry in the series!"

Our Legendary Journeys epubs series combines classic elements of both Text Adventure games and Choose Your Own Adventure books to provide an interactive quest that will engage, and entertain.  Science fiction fans will want to start with The Vortex, while horror fans will go for Castle Darkholm.  Adventure fans of all genres will enjoy both (with more being developed right now).

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
