New Hosted Game! "Hero or Villain: Battle Royale" By Adrao

Hosted Games has a new game for you to play!

Battle other heroes and villains in a gladiatorial contest to become the galaxy’s champion. Hero or Villain: Battle Royale is the second book of this epic saga, picking up from the epilogue of Hero or Villain: Genesis.

It’s 40% off until Sept 23rd!

Kidnapped from planet Earth by the mysterious Lanista and forced to fight in the Battle of Champions, you will have to balance your training with fighting injustice in an alien world…or becoming a criminal yourself!

Hero or Villain: Battle Royale is a 253,000 word interactive novel by Adrao, where your choices control the story. The game is text-based, but includes some artwork. Your choices control the outcome of the game entirely.

Will you follow the tournament to its conclusion, and claim victory over colleagues and foes? Or will you start your own criminal empire, and accomplish the biggest heist in the history of the planet? Are you a loyal subject, or will you join the ranks of the rebels attempting to overthrow the rule of the Elders over the galaxy?

• Import your character from Book 1, Hero or Villain: Genesis , or create a new one.
• Choose from dozens of powers. You can pounce on your enemies with the power of your fists, strike them down with hellfire, take control of their minds, dodge their attacks with your super-speed, or teleport behind their backs to strike them.
• Build your own gadgets, improving the quality of your armor or the weapons mounted on it.
• You can also learn new alien technology and design even more complex projects that will decide your fate in battles.
• Manage your relationships with your colleagues to help them succeed, or strike them down.
• Play as male, female, or nonbinary, and romance many of the other characters!
• Includes several illustrations to enhance your experience.
• Enjoy a variety of different game paths, with multiple side missions and endings.
• Try several different difficulty settings. Play as a mighty invincible hero, or just somebody only slightly more powerful than an average human.

Adrao developed this game using ChoiceScript, a simple programming language for writing multiple-choice interactive novels like these. Writing games with ChoiceScript is easy and fun, even for authors with no programming experience. Write your own game and Hosted Games will publish it for you, giving you a share of the revenue your game produces.

Congrats @adrao!

I know you worked very hard to make the breadth of this game as wide as you did, and I believe it will become one of your fans’ most desired.

It is amazing you are immediately involved in another project and doing another very wide styled game.

The options in Battle Royale are amazing.

Unfortunately it looks like we’ve run into an issue with publishing on iOS, and we don’t have an immediate update as to when the game will be available in the iOS Hosted Games app. We’re very sorry about this. If you’d like to purchase on our website instead, you’ll be able to restore your purchase when the game does become available in the Hosted Games app.

An issue with this particular title, or a systemic issue with iOS as a whole?

Congrats @adrao! :partying_face: I had a lot of fun testing this thanks to the intriguing main storyline with the Elders and the Lanista, and the way the MC’s colleagues interacted with one another. The setting really felt like a living, alien world.

There’s a bug in the iOS app blocking purchases. In the meantime, buy it on our website https://www.choiceofgames.com/user-contributed/hero-or-villain-battle-royale/ and then you can restore purchases in the app.

I feel the need to point out that the first preview image on the Google Play store retains the typographical error ‘Villian’, even though that’s apparently fixed here.

While I really like this game, I think an option should be provided where we would be able to save our progress…I just spent close to an hour, fighting and winning all fights only to lose all my progress at once…it really is unfair

I (just) fixed an error where some iPhones and iPads would be forced into the app when clicking the “Buy” button instead of buying on the website.

If you have this issue, try refreshing the page and buying again, or, in the worst case, buy the game on a computer instead of your phone. (For some reason I found that the bug was very sticky, so I had to force Safari to close before it worked properly on my phone.)
