SAN FRANCISCO, July 18, 2011: Have you ever wished to be the heroine of a romance novel? Think you could have run Anne Boleyn’s life better than she did? Want to walk a mile in Princess Kate’s gorgeous shoes? Now you can. Choice of Games, a quirky independent games company, has released their newest interactive novel, “Choice of Intrigues“—giving you the chance to star in your very own royal romance.
“Choice of Intrigues” is a sequel to last year’s popular “Choice of Romance,” and is available as an In-App Purchase on iPhones, iPads, and Android devices. Choice of Games is also releasing “Choice of Romance” and “Choice of Intrigues” as an omnibus edition on Amazon Kindle, entitled “Affairs of the Court.”
Play as a young noble who comes to court looking for love… and catches the monarch’s eye. Plunge into court politics and change the course of history, or pursue a love affair that rocks the kingdom to its foundations. Match wits with the schemers of the court, or play your suitors off each other. Seek wealth and power, or seek true love.
“Choice of Romance” has been critically acclaimed, with AppSafari calling it “a wonderfully fascinating and addictive experience that will leave you playing it over and over again as you attempt to discover each new ending” and Jezebel approving the “sexually liberated update” to the choose-your-own-adventure style of storytelling. “Choice of Intrigues” and the combined Kindle game “Affairs of the Court” continue the story begun in “Choice of Romance” while exploring the political machinations within the royal court.
“In these games, you control the story,” said Dan Fabulich, co-founder of Choice of Games. “You can choose to play as male or female, gay or straight. You can choose to pursue the King or the Queen of Iberia. Or you can reject the monarch entirely and marry someone else. Or focus on political intrigue rather than intrigues of the heart. Every ending is a direct consequence of your choices, and every ending is meaningful.”
“Affairs of the Court” is Choice of Games’ fourth release for Kindle, following the successful launch of “Choice of the Dragon,” “Choice of Broadsides,” and “Choice of the Vampire” in 2010. “Choice of Intrigues” is Choice of Games’ first sequel available through In-App Purchases.
