Does anyone have any suggestions for Gamebooks or interactive storybooks, produced within the last 5 years, that are not marketed specifically at kids?
I'm trying to explore the space for interactive stories and it looks like so much of what I can find was made before 2000 for 6th grade students.

I would also take suggestions for games with a very very prominent and guided narrative (a la T.I.M.E Stories).

Thanks!

https://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/68435/gamebooks/page/5? is a list of gamebooks, approximately in date order. You might also be more likely to find info on the RPGGeek side. I also know that a few of the more famous series have gone to kickstarter in recent years for reprinting as collectors editions and such.

I came across this one recently: Midnight Legion: Operation Deep Sleep. They are releasing two more books in the series.

Online, but at least some of the Choice of Games series are excellent cyoa games aimed at an adult audience.

Ones I especially enjoyed: The Orpheus Ruse, Slammed!, Choice of the Star Captain, Choice of Broadsides, Choice of the Dragon, Eerie Estate Agent

Find them at https://www.choiceofgames.com

You also have ffproject, which contains a lot of new gamebooks done in the old Fighting Fantasy style - www.ffproject.com

And Fallen London has at least some structural similarities with gamebooks - http://fallenlondon.storynexus.com/
