Deadman Diaries is an introduction to gamebooks (popularly known as "Choose-your-own-adventure"), so the game has been designed to be quick and easy to read.
Using the form of a personal diary, readers are immersed in the life of John Riggs, a bank worker who has to pay off a gambling debt that will lead him to different illegal, and often lethal, situations.
Readers are given different options and can choose between trying to save the character or killing him off in as many ways as possible.
