Bulgarian father Nikola Raykov has an incredibly lucky son. You see, Nikola was thinking of a way in which to teach his boy that we are solely responsible for every choice we make. He hit upon the idea of writing a book, but not just any normal book, one in which the reader can make their own choices to create their own story! Even though the first test copy of GameTale was a little too dull color-wise, the little boy loved it more than anything and read it with his father countless times. From there, Nikola's mission changed, he wanted all children to experience the magic his son felt so he made the book downloadable for free from his website (link below). Awesome! Take a look!
