Uncover a web of evil as an elite superspy! You might break a few rules—or a few hearts—but you won’t break cover. As Agent 180, a star secret agent, you’ve never found a problem you couldn’t solve with guns, gadgets, or a devastating quip. But after a personal tragedy sends your life off course, your next mission will test you to your very limits.

180 Files: The Aegis Project is a 184,000 word interactive spy thriller by Karelia Hall, 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.

An ex-informant is dead—and you’re sent to find out why. As you go undercover at the sinister company he worked for, dangerous secrets begin to emerge, along with shadows from your own past. Can you infiltrate the company in time to stop a deadly plot? And with your career in the balance, will you follow orders to the bitter end—or be tempted into a deal with the devil?

Can we have a more painful death for Faust? Jkjk but on a more serious note, is it possible to kill Faust AND not be fired from the Agency?

Besides Angel who is gender selectable and who’s romance will barely progress or start this book. Or is the reporter the only female one and the other are two dudes?

Actually in my playthrough one of the ROs which I remember was male when I played the demo was NB so who knows maybe it’s randomized and you have bad luck.

Doubt it’s randomized, I played the old demo as well so I assumed they were still male probably were changed to nb.

Vicki is always female but 313 changes gender based on the MC’s gender (they are always the same as the MC or random is the MC is NB) and you pick Angel’s gender.

Gareth is male, Hex is NB, agent 100 is male, Vicky is female, agent 313 is the same gender as your MC and you can select Angel’s gender.

By the way, is there a way to develop romantic relationship with agent 100? I thought I picked the right one when my MC went to bar at the end of the story but then it was very casual.
