Readers can choose between trying to save the character or sending him to the largest imaginable number of deaths
Deadman Diaries is an introduction to gamebooks (popularly known as “Choose-your-own-adventure”), so the game has been designed to be quick and easy to read. Likewise, its authors say “this story presents a contemporary ‘black’ and neo-noir thriller drawing from referents like the cinema of Scorsese and the Cohen Brothers, and TV series such as The Sopranos, without ignoring the influence of the most classical cinema ‘noir’ and the thrillers of James M.Cain and Patricia Highsmith”.
Using the form of a personal diary, readers are immersed in the life of John Riggs, a bank worker who has to pay off a gambling debt that will lead him to different illegal, and often lethal, situations.
Readers are given different options and can choose between trying to save the character or killing him off in as many ways as possible.
“Deadman Diaries” is available in English, Spanish, Russian and Catalan.

Ratings and Reviews
The choices are fairly limited in scope and two of the paths don’t work (Claim the child, open package.) Other than that it is a solid distraction.
Another winner from Cubus Games!
Can't wait to die again! Also, I like that it's not too long. Cubus has a ton of great apps anyway. Plus, let's face it, people always say they want a game to be 100+ hours and have more and more content, but nobody can even get through their Steam backlog these days. Sometimes shorter is better.
Nice Game but...
It's a nice game but the game was quick and easy. I finished it in about an hour and there was nothing left to the game after you completed all the deaths of the game. After playing the game, I was stuck with the need of wanting a little more. Great job on the app setup and the storyline of John Riggs!
