I just finished the free first part of the game. Yes, if you want to play the rest you have to pay, it's just 2,99$ so it's not that much.
My first impression is, well, it is definitly ( sorry if I spelt that wrong..) not what I expected. It's more reading a novel but you actually play a part in the story. Which I do find really amusing. It's well written and the story so far is interesting.
I would not really call this a game, but I can defenitly see why one would 'play' this. I remember reading novels and never having the chance to actually be a part in the story, never being able to make it different. I really like that. Because now I actually CAN change. Of course, I can see why not everyone would be fond of a game like this. If you're more of an action type gamer, then yes, this is not for you.
So what did I like about Choice of the Deathless?:
- very well written
- interesting story so far
- nice given choices
- you can see your own statistics and achievements you earned in-game
But, yes there is always a But, I think this game would even be better with some illustrations and ambiance. I don't know why but I kind of miss it. Even though i played some fantasy music from Future World Music and such in the background, just for the ambiance.
But overall, I liked it. So yup, I recommend this sort-of game. :)
