Choice of Robots

We’re proud to announce that Choice of Robots, the latest in our popular “Choice of Games” line of multiple-choice interactive-fiction games, is now available for Steam, iOS, Android, and Kindle Fire. It’s 40% off until January 2.

The robots you design will change the world! Will you show them the true meaning of love, or conquer Alaska with your robot army?

“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.

Play out thirty years of your life as a brilliant robot maker, from graduate school near the present day to a future in which your robots have changed everything. Depending on your choices, your robots may be independent or obedient, clumsy or graceful, empathic or cold … and you yourself may live to an old age happily married or alone with only robots to comfort you.

Play as male or female, gay or straight, with nine characters to romance, four alternate climax chapters, and over seventy achievements to unlock.

  • Build a unique robot character–you choose everything from its shape to what it calls you
  • Instigate or prevent a robotic uprising
  • Teach your robots to love humanity, or disdain it
  • Build an artificial intelligence suitable to take control of the world’s governments
  • Start a war against the United States, and win
  • Marry a human or an advanced robot, and start a family

We need your support to continue delivering our games on Steam. Our goal is to release our entire catalog of interactive novels on Steam. Based on the performance of Choice of the Deathless, Thieves’ Gambit: Curse of the Black Cat, and Mecha Ace, Valve has allowed us to ship Choice of Robots plus one additional game TBD. We’ll need to continue to deliver outstanding results to prove that interactive fiction can be successful on Steam.

We’re asking all of our fans to follow us on Steam. Even if you don’t use Steam that much, it will be a big help if you sign up to follow us there, because the more followers we get, the better visibility we get on Steam’s curator list. (Our goal is to hit 3,000 followers for our Steam curation page; we’re about 12% of the way there as I write this!)

When you follow us, you’ll see our games and our recommended games right on your Steam home page. It’s free, and it’s a big help to us, so follow us today!

We hope you enjoy playing Choice of Robots. We encourage you to tell your friends about it, and recommend the game on StumbleUpon, Facebook, Twitter, and other sites.

    The story is beyond amazing! I just recently bought it and have been replaying it over and over. You can really tell all the hard work placed into the game. Thank you for all your hard work!! 🙂

    This bug is really annoying. I bought the game using App Store and if I type a name I’m still “Unnamed Protagonist”!

    Love this one, played it around 6 times now n every time feels like a completely different game. Still finding paths and story lines that feel completely new.

  6. Dmitry says:

    Just finished it, took me 4 hours. I believe those were the happiest 4 hours I’ve had lately.

    Thank you! So much.

    This game made me cry at the end because it was so good and happy. Please make a Choice of Robots two or something with just as much emotion give game is able to give. Kevin Gold is a truly wonderful writer for this story. None of the choice games have given me as much feels as this one has. The characters really pull you in and your own player character truly feels real and like its really you in the game. I seriously love this game and I really do hope to play more writings from Kevin Gold.

  8. […] First: regular PR-IF attendee Kevin Gold has released his sci-fi epic Choice of Robots. […]

    one of the best game ever made about robots. and the best part of the game is will you change the future or will you destroy humanity with your creations. including military robots or terminators.

    Wow, just wow. Kevin Gold, you created something incredible here. The first time around I was like Doctor Doom, conquering the world with my vicious robot army. The second time around I was like Prof. Noonian Soong from Star Trek TNG, looking proudly on as my robot daughter tried to better herself and become more human. The parent/child and transcendence themes and the hard choices between morality and money, war and peace, nationalism and egalitarianism are some of the best I’ve ever seen in these games. Thank you!
