I wish that I had known about this, being a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure-phile.

Obviously it is worth 580k if it made that much.

I've got a copy of it, and the book is  great. Highly recommended to anyone out there who's interesting in something fun to read.

I want this.  I spent most of Hamlet wanting him to do something, anything, productive or helpful. I was amused by Royal Deceit, based (apparently) on the original source, and with a much less wishy-washy protagonist.

It's hysterical. If you play as Ophelia (yes, you can) and you follow the actual Shakespearean path of slutshaming and being told what to do by Laertes, the book starts to castigate you for being "really bad at being Ophelia" and forces you switch over to being Hamlet.

Good god. I have that book (somewhere)

Can you choose to get yourself to the nunnery because all of these people are farking crazy, and with your extensive knowledge of herbs you become head herbalist and discover the healing powers of hemp?

Well he wasn't asking for that much. If idiots wanna keep throwing money at him after the goal is reached they're the only ones to blame.
