LoneWolfDS is a gamebook, a kind of interactive fiction/choose your own adventure/RPG. They were novels which had a nice success during the 80's, and which were allowing the readers to choose their own path by jumping from one numbered section to another, with other nice ideas which were the precursors of what we find today in role playing video games.F. Calendini used the work from the Aon Project to adapt a Lone Wolf gamebook to the DS.

This adventure game is a conversion of the famous Lone Wolf gamebooks written by Joe Dever in the 80's.

The philosophy behind the port of the Lone Wolf books to the DS is to let the console handle all the rules related to combats, stats and so on, so the player can be really immersed in the story and doesn't need to bother with the gameplay elements.

It ranked 1st in the NEO Spring Coding Compo 2008.
