Mike Shepard is about to get married. That's nice. Except his bride thinks he's an insurance salesman, not an international assassin. He really wants to tell her he's getting paid to kill people roughly every other month but he just can't seem to find the words. And then, just to make things even more fun for the groom-to-be, a missing person kicks off a series of potential assassinations which may just decimate the wedding party. It never rains for Michael, it just pours.

Sometimes, it's about love. Sometimes, it's about flowers. But sometimes, it's just about surviving the happiest day of your life.

Arthur Ness and the Secret of Waterwhistle, Complete Edition

The collected edition containing both halves of Arthur Ness and the Secret of Waterwhistle. Enjoy the entire adventure in one bumper, double-sized book!


Sierra Leone. January, 1999. Not a safe place to be. Especially if, like Femi, you're a young chimpanzee looking for adventure. He is seeking the advice of the mythical Cotton Keeper on how to leave his starving tribe behind and strike out on his own. 

Unfortunately, Femi couldn't have chosen a worse time for his quest. Because the Big-Walkers are at war. Even as he treks towards his destination, the Big-Walkers race across the country on the backs of their growling, metal beasts, brandishing their magic, metal, killing arms. If Femi wants to speak to the Cotton Keeper, he will have to get to her before the Big-Walkers do.

Trust Me, I'm a Thief

The Rogue's Run Trio are, frankly, three of Arilon's oddest criminals. The Professor (annoying but brilliant criminal mastermind), Ajo (a young, Valian warrior) and Lake (a girl who can occasionally glimpse the future). Sailing aboard their ship, the Rogue's Run, they are the very best bunch of smugglers and thieves ever to grace the black skies of Arilon (well, according to their advertising).

An interactive adventure where you influence the characters' actions in a story that has a direct impact on the events of 'Arthur Ness and the Secret of Waterwhistle Part 2'.
