We’re proud to announce that our newest game, “Choice of the Deathless", is now available for iOS, Android, and, via the Chrome Web Store, Windows, OS X, and Linux. Please reshare this with friends! The more downloads we get in the first week, the higher we’ll rank in the App Store. … hp?src=ifo

Battle demons and undead attorneys, and win souls to pay back your student loans! At the elite demonic-law firm of Varkath Nebuchadnezzar Stone, you’ll depose a fallen god, find romance, and maybe even make partner, if you don’t lose your own soul first.

Choice of the Deathless is a necromantic legal thriller by Max Gladstone, Campbell Award-nominated author of Three Parts Dead and Two Serpents Rise. The game is entirely text-based–without graphics or sound effects–and powered by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

  • Explore a fantasy realm with a rich and evolving backstory, based on the novels published by Tor Books.
  • Play as male or female, gay or straight, dead or alive (or both).
  • Build your career on carefully reasoned contracts, or party all night with the skeletal partners at your firm.
  • Navigate intrigue and mystery in a world of scheming magicians and devious monsters.
  • Look for love in at least some of the right places.
  • Balance student loans, sleep, daily commute, rent payments, and demonic litigation—hey, nobody said being a wizard was always fun.

Interesting! I’ve read the two novels; they’re excellent. I didn’t know the author was interested in text games.

Will take a look.

And the author has a piece up on about writing interactive stories. (I haven’t read it yet.)


As y’all know, we post a lot of games here. (This is our tenth game of 2013.)

But this one is really special. The feedback from our beta testers has been particularly enthusiastic. Even our professional copyeditor felt the need to tell us – in shouty caps – how much she enjoyed reading it.

Please do give it a try. And if you’re considering buying it, please do so today. The App Store rankings freeze during the week of Christmas, so locking in a high rank means a great deal to us.
