Hosted Games has a new game for you to play!
You are a magician living a fairly normal life in a small village outside of the Kingdom of Githrad. Deal with bullies, navigate your father’s temper and alcoholism, and work at your various jobs. As well as being a clerk at your parents’ general store, you can also choose between being a guard, a scribe, a farmer, or a thief. It’s 40% off until August 23rd!
You get to have fun, too, like playing in chess tournaments, sparring, reading at the library, exploring necromancer’s caves, exploring the woods, and finding romance with the other villagers.
The Magician’s Burden is a 225,000 word interactive fantasy novel by Samuel Harrison Young, 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 as male, female, or non-binary; romance men, women, both, or no one at all
• Three different kinds of magic for you to choose from: stealth, light, or dark
• Dozens of stats detailing your skills, knowledge, attributes, relationships, and inventory
Oh, yeah. You’re also hijacked by a demon named Zaleth.
Samuel Harrison Young developed this game using ChoiceScript, a simple programming language for writing multiple-choice interactive novels like these. Writing games with ChoiceScript is easy and fun, even for authors with no programming experience. Write your own game and Hosted Games will publish it for you, giving you a share of the revenue your game produces.
