The Path of Light was initially supposed to be out a couple of days ago but, as you know, release dates are never quite certain. This gives me some time to say a few words about what to expect.
It is a story about a fantasy priest of the Light who accompanies his beloved priestess into the abyss on a mission to save a little angel imprisoned there. Well, she is a very special priestess that can turn into a bloodthirsty devil.
One big apology to @poison_mara and all of the other fans of Hosted Games who would like to play with a female MC. In the current version, you can only play with a male protagonist. When I did the coding, I was afraid that I would make a total mess (especially as I would need to make the gender of the MC’s partner a choice as well). So maybe that would be left for an update.
As I mentioned, there is romance. Only one, but it is quite deep as you spend most of the adventure with that priestess.
Another thing I want to say is that the app is already available on Google Play and Amazon under another label. So, one big thank you to Hosted Games for… hosting the game on the other markets. There probably one precedent - Sam Landstrom’s Wizard’s Choice.
Talking about Sam Landstrom, I must say that I am a big fan of his works. My big dream was to be published by his Delight Games and I really like the fact that we are (ok, technically I am not yet) Hosted Games authors. You will see that some of the mechanics I used are similar to his.
Finally, a short quote from Andrew Drage (Brewin’) who is more familiar among the fan of another gamebook app developer - Tin Man Games (as an editor, game designer and author)
“An engrossing tale of love, magic, demons and other worlds. Carefully manage your relationships, make choices in wisdom and not haste, and try to stay on the ever-narrow Path of Light!”
P.S.: In terms of numbers, it is 50 k words and will come at the price of a single dollar. I am currently half way through its sequel and do hope to be able to finish the rough draft by the end of the month.
