SAN FRANCISCO--August 9, 2018: Choice of Games announced today that "Choice of Magics," the latest in their popular line of multiple-choice interactive-fiction games, is now available on Steam, iOS, and Android. It's 30% off until August 17th.
Your magic can change the world, but at what cost? Battle dragons, skyships, and evil Inquisitors, as you protect your homeland, conquer it, or destroy it forever.
"Choice of Magics" is a 550,000-word interactive, post-apocalyptic fantasy novel by Kevin Gold, author of our best-selling game, "Choice of Robots." It's entirely text-based, without graphics or sound effects, and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.
Thousands of years ago, the ancients destroyed civilization with five schools of magic. Each spell comes at a terrible price. Glamor charms your adversaries, rotting your body from the inside. Divination reveals faraway secrets, exposing your own secrets to others. Automation gives objects the spark of life, destabilizing the climate. Vivomancy can heal or change living things, with bizarre side effects. Blast your enemies with Negation energy, forming permanent clouds of deadly fallout.
As a young scrounger of antiquities, you hope to build your ruined world anew with these rediscovered spells. Now you must decide which of these magics can transform your post-apocalyptic society, and what you'll risk to bring hope and light to your kinsmen.
Can you bring the world back from ruin and shape a new society? Use your magics well, and you could become as a god; use your magics poorly and destroy the world all over again.
