About the Game

Battle demons and undead attorneys, and win souls to pay back your student loans! At the elite demonic-law firm of Varkath Nebuchadnezzar Stone, you'll depose a fallen god, find romance, and maybe even make partner, if you don't lose your own soul first.

"Choice of the Deathless" is a necromantic legal thriller by Max Gladstone, Campbell Award-nominated author of Three Parts Dead and Two Serpents Rise. The game is entirely text-based--without graphics or sound effects--and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

  • Explore a fantasy realm with a rich and evolving backstory, based on the novels published by Tor Books.
  • Play as male or female, gay or straight, dead or alive (or both).
  • Build your career on carefully reasoned contracts, or party all night with the skeletal partners at your firm.
  • Navigate intrigue and mystery in a world of scheming magicians and devious monsters.
  • Look for love in at least some of the right places.
  • Balance student loans, sleep, daily commute, rent payments, and demonic litigation—hey, nobody said being a wizard was always fun.

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. :)

~Kind wishes

I enjoyed this demo very much and intend to purchase the full version.

Very well written, rather like an R.L. Stein choose your own scare book.

As far as I text based game goes, I like it because its details are clear and simple. I enjoy text based games only when the creators really dive into the games world and develope a real sense for te day to day in game.
