A big part of growing up for me was reading the numerous Choose-Your-Own-Adventure books. These were paperbacks that allowed you to basically play a reading game by making choices which then told you to go to a different page to continue the story. This resulted in often incredibly short adventures and lots of flipping back to undo your last decision. Choice of Games has created a software platform that allows for the creation of the digital version of these books.
We have also developed a simple scripting language for writing text-based games, ChoiceScript, which we make available to others for use in their projects, and we host games produced by other designers using ChoiceScript on our website.
There is a wide variety of topics/titles to choose from and they are available to experience online via your browser or on your mobile and tablet devices. Recently Steam added one of Choice of Games most intriguing products, Choice of Robots.
Choice of Robots is an epic 300,000-word interactive sci-fi novel by Kevin Gold, where your choices control the story. It’s entirely text-based—without graphics or sound effects—and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.
It also mentioned conquering Alaska with your robot army so you know that we were in.
