A Day In The Life

Tue Sep 26 10:55:49 2017
I have become quite enamoured of a short gamebook idea called A Day in the Life. 'YOU are an overweight 40 year old. Can YOU make it through an entire day at Bloodstock and watch Megadeth's set, in the face of security guards, spiralling inebriation, people dressed up as horror characters, drug fiends on Black Mamba, the legendary bin jousting, musicians who want to knock you through the wall and the dreaded BLACK DOG?'

A Day In The Life

Gavin Mitchell has kindly sent me another gamebook that he has written, I've added it to the downloads page. In this you are a middle aged man seeking respite at a heavy metal festival.

Download it here.

Collapsed of alcoholic excess just before Megadeth. BLUE RUIN

Well I suppose I did write it. (And not post all but one of the failure endings, of which I lost count.)

A Day In The Life

Fleeing circumstances even more unpleasant than usual, you have come to Bloodstock, Britain's finest heavy metal festival. Your mission is to make it through the whole of Sunday and watch Megadeth; the band who, more than any other, have influenced your life. But beware! There are many factors out there to ruin your pure enjoyment, end your liberty or your very existence!

If you want to find out what Gavin Mitchell has been up to since he was a psychic assassin, play this tiny gamebook.

This brought back so many memories. Love the idea.

What you were actually at Bloodstock 17? Or Metaldays 17. Or Bloodstock 14, where Lacuna blew chunks.

Strange. Never knew security guards had the power?

I almost wish I was going to Bloodstock this year after winning this again. And yes, security guards are pretty much omnipotent at these sorts of events, at least against lone intoxicants.

Security guards here don't even do citizens arrest. They just chase you off the premises.

Thu Aug 9 07:44:02 2018
I imagine the civilian police would be involved as well, festivals don't want reputations for lawlessness, look at altamont.

On Friday Blind Guardian decided they would have a little banter with the crowd.

'Bloodstock how you doing'


'I consider that a compliment'

Totally irrelevant to the game, but I thought I would stick it in somewhere.

Admittedly it was raining.

Holy crap I got the golden ending on my first try.

Weird adventure but pretty funny. Maybe a bit too easy but I guess its not like you're putting your life on the line. THe SOTN reference and the Jason joke cracked me up
