When demon-summoning usurpers assassinate the king and queen, the right of rulership falls to you, their only child. Develop your own unique prince or princess, discovering a world of fantasy, magic, mystery, and adventure.

The Lost Heir: The Fall of Daria is an epic 145,000-word interactive fantasy novel—the first of a trilogy—by Mike Walter, author of Life of a Mobster, Life of a Wizard, and Paradox Factor, where your choices control the story. The game is entirely text-based–without graphics or sound effects–and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

Develop your own unique prince or princess, for good or evil! Become a noble knight, a greedy thief, an evil priest, a nature-loving druid, a charming bard, a deadly assassin, a wise monk, a well-traveled ranger, a martial cleric, a kind priest, a brutal thug, a steadfast guard, a powerful wizard or any combination you choose.

Your highness, the kingdom of Daria awaits you!

  • Play as male or female, gay or straight.

The Lost Heir was (predictably) amazing, and Seven Bullets is really good, too. I purchased my copy on Android, and I’m only part of the way through it, but its mix of science fiction and fantasy is awesome. The stats and choices are a bit simple, but they really do matter, and the writing is tight and witty. 5/5 on both of these titles!

My only complaint on Seven Bullets are that there seem to be quite a few grammar errors. For The Fall of Daria, I’d have to say that I was a little bit disappointed that you have to specialize in order to have a “useful” character, but the overall quality makes up for it.

Oh my god. X_X I just got down reading over Seven Bullets again, and it’s so incredible. It’s definitely one of my new favorites. It lacks a few customizing perks (like choosing your name), the choices are sometimes simple and we aren’t given much to go off of, and there are regular typos, but they aren’t anything glaring. But, again, the rest easily makes up for it; the replay ability is better than any of I’ve ever seen, (and I’ve read every single CoG and HG), the writing is amazing and witty, (I find myself chuckling at almost every page and I laughed out loud several times) and some of the characters have great development, like Ayporos and Jazelle.

I bought Lost Heir from the CWS and it wouldn’t download due to a vague “Server Problem”. The issue doesn’t seem to be at my end, and the option of refunding the purchase has long since elapsed. I bought it four days ago and thought no more of it (maybe its a temporary thing, que sera, sera). I tried again today and the same problem. Just a heads up.

You can always email receipts to me, and I will comp you on the webstore.
