Hosted Games has a new game for you to play!
It’s a regular Tuesday evening when you are pulled from the Earth and sent to a place where magic still exists. You are given a wizard’s tower filled with arcane knowledge that you are expected to learn. Thrust into a war between two nations, it’s up to you to save the kingdom where you now live. It’s 40% off until August 10th!
The Last Wizard is a 185,000 word interactive fantasy novel by Mike Walter, 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.
Your choices will influence who rules the land and what happens to the civilians living there. Will you find love or will you strive to return to the life you were forced to leave behind? Will you save the kingdom, or will you betray the people for your own personal gain? The choice is yours!
• Play as male, female, genderfluid, or non-binary; gay, straight, or asexual
• Find romance with a variety of interesting characters.
• Learn and master multiple powerful spells.
• Build a powerful golem, ride a dragon, raise the dead, heal the sick, rain fire upon your enemies, fly, become invisible, summon lightning, enchant magical weapons…
• Acquire powerful magical artifacts.
• Save the kingdom or join the enemy.
• Return home to Earth or live your life in a fantasy world.
• Change the fates of two nations!
Mike Walter 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.
Steam hasn’t released the game. Do you guys know what’s up over on that end?
Is anyone else having trouble with the hosted games app? When I click the link the app crashes. I checked my app updates and I don’t see any update for the app. I only see the old version.
Do you get emails about his games? If you do then use the link and it will be there
Yeah I’m having the same problem after clicking the link above. It crashes as soon as I open it now even after closing and reopening it.
Crashed for me too. Hopefully it gets fixed soon.
The game freeze at this page
all you need to do is exit completely out of the game the go back in and you will be at the next part then you need to do it again after you choose a choice because it also freezes there but after that it starts working as normal again.
All my Omnibus bugs have cleared. I’m able to fully play the game on my iPad now.
Is anyone still having troubles with any of the platforms?
Thanks CoG for all your hard work. Release day is always so frantic! @jasonstevanhill @RETowers
I’m still experiencing crashes, even after multiple attempts at troubleshooting. The AppStore still shows no pending updates.
It’s a shame, because in addition to being unable to access any of my previous hosted game purchases I was really looking forward to this game.
Yup same here after closing the app and restarting my phone.
The same problem happened to me yesterday after being able to almost complete a run of the story, I quickly sent an email to support, but so far no improvements or fixes have been implemented. Same thing with the hosted omnibus app now not wanting to load any previously purchased stories, and crashing every now and then before the menu even loads.
There’s a hard patch coming apparently, meaning it has to be approved by apple first
Today! The Last Wizard is out today?! [Fetches glasses]
The Acheievements Menu option appears to be missing for Last Wizard. I see that the button exists in other games, so just this one. Is this included in the patch or a separate issue?
I got the pop up, so they’re there, just no way to see the list.
@RETowers @jasonstevanhill @dwarva
So I got the game and played a good but last night, but today it wouldn’t show up on the app? Eventually I reinstalled the app and it came up but my playthrough was gone! Now I’m back to square one. And with no guarantee that it won’t be lost again.
