All3Media International has secured a publishing deal for the BAFTA award winning BBC reality TV game show, The Traitors.
Penguin Random House imprint, Century, will publish the official tie-in The Traitors: The Interactive Puzzle Book where readers must put their sleuthing skills to the test in a ‘world of deception, betrayal and strategy’, as they try to figure out if fellow players are Faithful or a Traitor.
In the book, the decisions the reader makes will decide what happens next as they can choose their route through the book – unless they take a wrong turn and are murdered by the Traitors. It is suitable to be played alone or with others and includes over 20 standalone games to play as a pair or in a group – all with cunning twists recognisable from the show.
Amanda Lovett, contestant and ‘Traitor’ from series one, provides the foreword for the book. Publication will be supported by a major, world-building publicity, marketing and retail campaign.
The book will be published on 23 November.
“Like the rest of the UK, I became completely obsessed with The Traitors at the end of the last year, as did the rest of the Century team,” commented Zennor Compton, editorial director for Century non-fiction. “So we’re thrilled to be publishing the series’ official book, which will fully immerse fans into the treacherous world of the show, with twists and turns at every page. Fun for all the family, the book is set to match the success of the show.”
Jane Sharp, vp commercial licensing at All3Media International, continued: “A nail-biting psychological game of suspense and deception The Traitors is as addictive on the page as it is onscreen. With the passion and expertise of Century’s team and writer Alan Connor, I’m delighted that faithful fans and new players will get be able to lose themselves in the vivid stories and immersive gameplay of The Traitors’ official book.”
