SAN FRANCISCO, June 1, 2011: Choice of Games, a quirky independent games company, has released their newest interactive novel, “Choice of the Vampire,” for Amazon Kindle.
At more than 160,000 words, “Choice of the Vampire” is one of the longest works ever written in the “choose a path” style, allowing players to choose their gender, sexual orientation, ethnic background, and feeding habits.
Play as a young vampire, from the Battle of New Orleans in 1815 through the end of the Civil War in 1866. You’ll meet (and possibly feed from) Andrew Jackson, Marie Laveau and Jefferson Davis along the way. Struggling to increase your standing among elder vampires, you must balance an insatiable thirst for blood against your dwindling vestiges of humanity. Will you choose the winning side of the Civil War? Will you rule the German coast with an iron fist? Will you find a love that can transcend death itself?
This is Choice of Games’ third release for Kindle, following the successful launch of “Choice of the Dragon” and “Choice of Broadsides” during the winter of 2010. “We’re thrilled with the reception of our games,” said Dan Fabulich, co-founder of Choice of Games. “People are really responding to our products. Interactive fiction has a long and storied history, one that we’re proud to draw upon; our active content for Kindle makes the category accessible to even more readers.”
The first episode of “Choice of the Vampire” is available now in the Amazon Kindle Store.
