We’re proud to announce that Choice of the Star Captain, the latest in our popular line of multiple-choice interactive-fiction games, is now available for Kindle, iOS, Android, and, via the Chrome Web Store, Windows, OS X, and Linux.
Fight on the front lines of the war between humanity and the hideous Blobs. (Not that anyone has actually seen a Blob up close, but everyone knows they have tentacles. Surely they’re hideous!) Go on stealth missions, run alien blockades, and investigate mysterious planets, “aided” by Lloyd, your insufferably obnoxious shipboard computer.
Choice of the Star Captain is a hilarious interactive science-fiction novel where your choices determine how the story proceeds. The game is entirely text-based–without graphics or sound effects–but powered by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.
“I set out to write a rollicking and ridiculous space adventure,” said Dorian Hart, author of Choice of the Star Captain. “My hope is that my readers will laugh out loud several times per minute–because the story is funny, of course, and not due to some unfortunate medical condition.” Dorian’s design credits include BioShock, Freedom Force and System Shock 2, among others.
Humanity needs you, Star Captain! Will you defeat the Blobs and come home as a war hero? Will you uncover the secret that sparked the Blob invasion? Will you serve as ambassador and convince the Blobs to spare the human race? The choice is yours.
We hope you enjoy playing Choice of the Star Captain. We encourage you to tell your friends about it, and recommend the game 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 we’ll rank.
