Hosted Games has a new game for you to play!

Island of Carnage

Survival, horror, and an interactive adventure await those who travel to the dangerous Island of Carnage. Will you escape the bloody carnage that plagues the island, or will you fall victim to it?

Island of Carnage is a 50,000 word interactive survival horror novel by Theodore Nolan, 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.

In this game, you start as a struggling journalist who has a tip for a big story that could launch your career. You travel to a remote island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, fraught with seismic activity, to begin your investigation of a company known as OWL.

Your goal on the island is to gather enough evidence to try and expose OWL for its exploitation of the island for its resources. But survival and escape quickly supersede your initial journalistic endeavors.

  • Play as male, female, or nonbinary, genderfluid; gay, straight, bi, or ace, and even poly.
  • Explore a mysterious island wracked by earthquakes and other perils.
  • Face hordes bloodthirsty mutated creatures that crave human flesh.
  • Gather evidence to expose corporate exploitation and corruption.
  • Team up with your new friends to survive!

Your journey will take you across an island filled with peril, adventure, and life-and-death choices. Survival won’t be easy, but with new friends and your trusty weapon for protection, escape from the island might be possible. Can you escape the Island Of Carnage, or will you end up as a meal for a hungry horde of red-eyed cannibals?

Content Warning: The story Island Of Carnage contains blood, violence, and gore. The flesh-eating creatures, you, and anything else alive on the island can die in this adventure/horror game of survival.

  1. I had low expectations for a 50,000 word novel but I was pleasantly surprised it’s quite good

  2. “Play as male, female, or nonbinary”

    This isn’t accurate. There’s no option to choose your gender. You’re forced to be male.

    Hello. I didn’t write that, but the main character is actually “gender-neutral.” Simply choose your name and play it as you like :slight_smile:

    Someone just pointed out to me that I flubbed and used the pronoun “he” in the village for the MC. Not sure if it’s too late to change it :frowning:

  4. It’s not too late to change it. Just get in touch with your contact(s) at Hosted Games and submit the correction. Authors fix stuff all the time that doesn’t get caught until after release.

  5. I was a beta reader for this game, and I had a great time playing it. Although it’s short, it’s a scary little adventure in survival horror. I wouldn’t recommend it to readers looking for something deep or character-driven, but for those who enjoy a more game-like experience that’s immersive and short, I recommend it highly.
