Choice of the Deathless

GrinnypEver have one of those days at work where pouring your blood, sweat, and tears into the job is a literal thing, where cutthroat competition is not a metaphor, and your clients tend to be demons from another dimension? No? Would you like to have one of those days? If so, check out Choice of Games, who have teamed with fantasy author Max Gladstone to bring us Choice of the Deathless, an interactive text adventure set in an undead legal firm that makes Wolfram and Hart look like pikers.

Choice of the DeathlessYou begin as a junior associate, fresh out of school, dealing with magic, mayhem, and crippling student loans. If you've played any of the Choice of games you know the drill, read the evocative text and choose your response. Your choices contribute to your statistics like charm, craft, cunning, etc. which in turn drive how well you survive the in-game scenarios. Do you want to work like a dog and get your soul-sucking debt paid off or do you want to party all night? Do you want to make friends and maybe find romance or do you want to cut like a scythe through the competition, making partner atop a heap of your co-workers' cooling bodies? Any and all of these scenarios is possible and much, much more.

Choice of the Deathless combines the rich, imaginative gameplay of the classic all text adventures of yesteryear and fuses them with the evocative and fully-realized world of Max Gladstone's novels. Enter a world where magic exists right alongside office tedium, where you can be male, female, alive, dead, or undead in your pursuit of happiness or financial stability. Immerse yourself in this astonishing world and be all you can be. Or, you know, just be a skeleton wizard. It is your choice, so make it.

Any idea when CoG will be putting this up on the Amazon App Store? Not that I don't trust Google Play or anything, I just don't trust them with my card number.
