Here's the real story behind the "Choose Your Own Adventure" books

I used to have Ace of Aces, also some fantasy fighting game which worked on the same principle. I have no idea where any of them are now.

I remember writing these sorts of stories on my apple II using something with a name very similar to Storymaker-- there was a particular adventure I wrote in which the character was perpetually in danger of being devoured by wolves of unusual size and ferociousness. My dad, seeing that we were interested in that sort of thing, bought us a pascal compiler and a book on writing real adventure games, but it never quite took (vastly more work was required to write even the simplest of stories)
