Other CYOA/IF games?

Bite your tongue! Mobile gaming is thriving, and Dream Quest is one of the best video games ever releases in any medium. Brings out the masochist in me I didn’t even know existed.

This looks and “feels” like a scam site to me - a place I would be afraid that is harvesting personal info for non-legal purposes.

I believe I would be if I allowed myself to use them. Which is why I don’t use them.

I don’t understand this comment.

These are the ultimate microtransaction streams that many legit and established game publishers look to for inspiration – my hope is the world will legislate this business model out of existence.

The slot machine apps are quite addictive as well for that type of “mindless fun” that sometimes is needed…

O.K. Good because I took the post wrong then … you might want to edit it to reflect this, for those not comprehending your meaning correctly.

The app I had ( Its been a few years now) was put out by the Casino group that runs the Mirage casino and it “replicated” their slots… I don’t know if it still exists … but it was a good little app. lol

I meant that I hoped she was alone, in that those other app sites are both competition to this place and, honestly, just seem to be kinda meh.

Isn’t there one with lots of Universal properties like Saved by the Bell, The Breakfast Club and Xena Warrior Princess? That one sounded pretty crazy. :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

OMG that one is the WORST (says the girl who’s played every single story on the app.)

That one doesn’t save your premium choices. So not only do you say…have to pay $2.00 to kiss your girlfriend at the end but it doesn’t save your purchase history so that if you want to replay a story they expect you to pay AGAIN for any “premium choices.”

Damnnnnnn. Glad they never did one of those with Marvel or Star Wars ladies, I would have been screwed. :sweat_smile:

@derekmetaltron
Shhhhh! Don’t give them any ideas.

It’s a shame, because if they had a different business model I think they could actually be fun, but paying for the obviously better choice takes all the fun out of making that choice.

I played Choices. I used the romance ones to earn diamonds for the stories I like. There are some good stories in that app in fairness to them like the Most Wanted and It lives series.

Shame that the Most Wanted don’t have a sequel. I’ve been hoarding diamonds in hopes that when sequel comes out I have enough for those premium choices. :joy:

Do any of the Choices games actually have the option of playing a male character? I realise the core audience is probably female but I always figured there should always be something for male players in the romance genre, even if we aren’t predominant! :sweat_smile: :wink:

The only recent ones have a male counterpart but not all unfortunately.

Edit: Here’s the complete list if you’re interested:

We believe that our platform is a revolutionary way to read fiction. We are quite different from COG, but LOVE COG & Hosted Games as well. They inspire us to create.

You’ve inspired us to communicate with this forum to clarify our position. Our beta test starts soon, and you’re invited. (Sorry COG for doing this on your site. o_O)

I welcome all and any questions via live chat on our website www.decisionfiction.com/cog or via email sir@decisionfiction.com.

I appreciate that you came here to clarify, but admittedly you didn’t do a lot of actual clarification.

I LOVE inkles’s 80 days. I haven’t tried Sorcery. Is it good? Is there humor in it? One of the reasons I love 80 days is becuase of the humor it it. It makes the playing experience much more interesting.

I also played choices; I don’t like their blatant romance stories as I’m not a fan of pure romance in general, but some of their adventure stories are interesting. It is very expensive to get the full experience so I tend to play the ones I don’t like to collect diamonds only.

@lynossa I love 80 days. I’ve had Sorcery for a while but to be honest had trouble really getting into it and haven’t gotten far into the game. (I pick it up from time to time but it doesn’t have the same appeal for me that 80 days did and it has quite different in mechanics.) In saying that some people love Sorcery more than 80 days, so I guess it depends on what you like to play :slight_smile:

I liked most of the ways they updated Sorcery! from the old 80s books. Though I think it got a bit convoluted when they got to some of the revisions on the 4th book.

Still a cool series overall.
