"Skystrike: Wings of Justice"—Take to the skies and save your city!


We’re proud to announce that Skystrike: Wings of Justice, 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” app.

It’s 25% off until November 17th!

Take to the skies! With the swift wings and keen senses of a falcon, can you save your city from the RatKing’s army of minions?

Skystrike: Wings of Justice is a 350,000 word interactive novel by E. Chris Ambrose. It’s entirely text-based, without graphics or sound effects, and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

As the hero Skystrike, you use your falcon powers to keep your city safe while maintaining your secret identity and evading government forces desperate to harness your powers for war.

Now, there’s a new threat in town: a charismatic villain known as the RatKing, who has been recruiting a massive army of merciless minions. He must be more than an ordinary crime boss - why else would the animals in town be acting so strangely? And why else would the Bureau of Unlikely Occurrences be on the case?

You’ll need to fly fast and think faster - or just hit harder - if you’re going to have a chance of defeating this villain! Dance at glamorous galas, thwart attacks on the city’s infrastructure, infiltrate top-secret labs, and try to keep your secret identity secret.

You’ll even come face to face with the RatKing himself! When you do, you just might learn the secret truth behind his rise to power–or, you might succumb to his charisma and become a minion yourself…

All you know for sure is, if you can’t convince the government to help, you must escape them in time to stop the RatKing from carrying out his secret plan. Or will Skystrike be grounded forever?

• Play as male, female, or non-binary; gay, straight, bi, or asexual/aromantic.

There are things you might learn about the Rat King at some point that I’d say set him a little beyond the pale of “lovable enemy” territory. But I’m glad you’re enjoying the game! It’s a fun one.

This is a fun romp and the only disappointing thing is that you can’t romance RatKing. The tension during the gala!! And like, every other appearance, but the gala!! Yes, he killed his parents, and tried to blow up the city, but we have a shared origin story and did the same prank!! “The first time our eyes met […] An unforgettable moment for me”!!! Be still my heart!!!

Still an absolute delight.

Generally enjoyed this and felt like I was doing my best, but I must’ve missed a lot somehow because I wound up with a pretty awful ending that definitely took me by surprise. Thought I’d set myself up pretty well, really, but then it just sort of felt like it turned out the things I did actually didn’t matter or help at all and I’m pretty unclear as to why. Admittedly a bit frustrating but also technically “my fault.” I’ll give it another go sometime.
