Asteroid Run: No Questions Asked -- Deliver the cargo, get rich, or die trying!

We’re proud to announce that Asteroid Run: No Questions Asked, the latest in our popular “Choice of Games” line of multiple-choice interactive-fiction games, is now available for Steam, Android, and on iOS in the Choice of Games Omnibus app. It’s 33% off until June 27th!

Captain! You have limited resources, a desperate crew, strange cargo and a company man is aboard to spy on you. Will you deliver your secret cargo to the Asteroid Belt on time? You and your crew will get rich or die trying!

Asteroid Run: No Questions Asked is a 325,000-word interactive science-fiction novel by Fay Ikin, 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.

Cargo runs between Earth, Mars and the Asteroid Belt are commonplace, but deadly. You’re the captain of a merchant vessel, but this time, your contract has a twist: don’t open the cargo, don’t get in the way of its handler, and don’t ask questions. Deliver to Vesta Station.

What kind of captain will you be? Will you get your hands dirty in the engine, be an aspiring scientist, or a master negotiator? Will you focus on the health of your crew or the state of your ship? Will you put your crew in danger to protect the mysterious cargo, or will you join forces with vicious anarchists to fight against corporate wealth and corruption?

• Play as non-binary, female, or male, and find romance—asexual or otherwise—with people of all genders.
• Discover your crew’s secrets, or secure their well-being: their lives are in your hands.
• Abandon your position to join forces with the anarchists and their charismatic leader, and even turn double agent.
• Balance your ship’s resources, delivering the cargo on time, and your influence with groups in the solar system.
• Get rich being a bootlicker for the law-bringers or the megacorporations, or use their own corruption against them.

Whatever alliances you make, the Big Black is vast and unforgiving, and your corporate guest is watching for any mistakes. You’ve got six months to Vesta Station: make them count.

All the crew members, Victor, and Katja the blonde lady you meet on Vesta.

Thanks, tho I was more like kidding here. There is always someone who shows up only to ask who the ROs are.

Edit: I like what I’ve seen of the game so far tho I’m still at the early chapters so will get back later to giving feedback.

My only complaint(s) about this game are

  1. I only got to make one trip (albeit an epic one)
  2. I didn’t get to choose starting supplies/fuel/etc

Mara was totally on board romance Normandy themself and Seth green… Sadly Bioware don’t let us romance both in a poli relationship. Pilot capitain and ship is a hell of perfect relationship

That was enjoyable. Onyl played once so far, but I will play it again, even if I won’t go too far off what I have done (I prefer a certain type of character, after all).

Wonder if we will see a sequel? :wink:
