To call this a choose-your-own-adventure story would be doing it an injustice. This is far more sophisticated. This is a beautifully constructed game that takes a fun format and brings it to the next level. The story is completely engrossing, I couldn't turn the game off, it was that engaging. The writting is immersive and a pleasure to read, the choices are well constructed and satisfying (with just the right amount of humor thrown in), and the world is unique and intriguing. I was sad when the game was over, I wanted to explore the world more.
I'd also like to note that I found no offensive content in this game during my play-through: nothing sexist, racist, homophobic--in fact it is very easy and satisfying to play as male or female, gay, straight or bi, and the race of your character is never mentioned or assumed. The cast is also racially diverse, which was a pleasant surprise. I never found the experience awkward or felt that it was only intended for a specific type of player. It's so uncommon to find a game that seems to be constructed for everyone to enjoy, but I think Choice of the Deathless has made it happen. I wholeheartedly recommend this game, and look forward to playing other titles by this developer.
