About This Game

You awake as a lich—an undead necromancer—after performing a powerful ritual. Now you must recruit and manage undead minions and cultists while facing threats from within your domain and from other planes of existence.

Life as a Lich is a 200,000-word interactive novel by Adrao, where your choices control the story. It's entirely text-based—without graphics or sound effects—and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination. It can be played as a sequel to one of the endings of Tokyo Wizard, also by Adrao, or as a standalone game with an entirely new character.

  • Choose from a fantasy setting or modern-day Japan.
  • Learn and research over 50 unique spells.
  • Play as male, female, or nonbinary, and romance other undead!
  • Explore and expand your underworld domain, or travel to different planes of existence.
  • Raise large undead armies of skeletons, zombies, ghouls, necrodragons, golems...or even form a rat army!
  • Battle—or befriend—an array of different creatures, including demons from other planes and demigods.
  • Play on several different difficulty settings. Start as a mighty lich on Very Easy...or struggle to overcome the challenges of Impossible Mode.
  • Explore a variety of different game paths and stories, with multiple side missions and endings.

Will you dedicate yourself to your research in order to become a demigod and abandon your skeletal form? Or will you decide that undeath is not for you and seek to reincarnate yourself into a mortal form? Will you be an evil lich, seeking to kill and enslave all in your path, or a benevolent necromancer trying to help those who worship you? Will you seek love and companionship in undeath, or will solitude and the search for power fill your soul?
