Today, Choice of Games is proud to announce two new games. First, Eerie Estate Agent, the latest in our popular “Choice of Games” line of multiple-choice interactive-fiction games, is now available for iOS, Android, and, via the Chrome Web Store, Windows, OS X, and Linux.
Manage a Haunted House in “Eerie Estate Agent”
In Eerie Estate Agent, it’s your job to rent out a haunted house before your tyrannical boss has you fired.
In this interactive novel, your choices determine how the story proceeds. For example, when your tenants, who haven’t slept in days due to bone-chilling whispers emanating from the walls, ask to break their lease, do you:
A) Let them transfer their lease to another property?
B) Allow them to break the lease, but keep their security deposit?
C) Insist on sticking to the terms of the lease?
D) Boldly investigate, like all the victims in bad horror films?
How will you screw over your tenants? Will you ignore inconvenient supernatural phenomena, or use them to drum up publicity? How will you deal with ghost hunters, squatters, and celebrity tenants? Will you emerge as the top agent? Stage an office coup? Or will you become a permanent resident of 57 Crowther Terrace?
Embark on a Spiritual Adventure in “Way Walkers: University”
Which Way will you walk?
In a land were science and magic are the same, you are one of the few born with Extrasensory Abilities–and you dream of attending the most prestigious metaphysical university on the Continent. There, you can discover not only your potential and place amid the Twelve Ways of Spirit, but perhaps your ultimate destiny. Fight drakes, make friends or enemies, chase ghosts and argue with angels, be an upstanding student or a devious rebel–it’s all up to you.
Way Walkers: University is a truly interactive novel, set in a world where freewill is paramount. Every choice you make decides your fate, and defines your very soul. ‘For freewill shall choose between the paths fate has lain.’
Will you follow the Way of the Healer, or carve your reputation as a Warrior? Shall gossip and relationships fill your days, or shall you choose the Way of Truth and study? Will you seek fame along the Way of Creativity, or hone your Abilities under the Way of magic?
Will you choose a righteous path, or fall to the Way of Evil?
Our Two-Label Publishing Platform
Choice of Games makes games available under two labels: our official “Choice of Games” label, available only to select authors, and our “Hosted Games” label, which is open to everyone.
“Eerie Estate Agent” is the second game under the “Choice of Games” label written by a professional author outside the “Choice of Games” partnership. Our previous experiment with this was Heroes Rise: The Prodigy; it was a huge hit.
Like “Heroes Rise,” we’re not offering the entirety of these new games for free on our website. We’re offering the first part (about 20%) of each game for free; to play the rest, you’ll have to purchase the game.
We hope you enjoy playing Eerie Estate Agent and Way Walkers: University. We encourage you to tell your friends about them, and recommend our games on StumbleUpon, Facebook, Twitter, and other sites. Don’t forget: our initial download rate determines our ranking on the App Store. Basically, the more times you download in the first week, the better our games will rank.
