WARNING! CONTAINS “CHOICE OF ROBOTS” SPOILERS!
It’s been a while since I posted, but recently something has came to mind.I wanted to earl all 72 “Choice of Robots” achievements so I searched a video. In the comment section there was a comment that grabbed my attention. It read “I cried after I finished the game… I want a sequel…”. That got me thinking, how would a sequel of a game like “Choice of Robots” even happen? The story was never meant to even have a sequel! You couldn’t even save you story for a sequel! It seems almost impossible to create a sequel for such a good novel.
Note: I’m not insisting Kevin Gold or anybody should be out there writing a new novel. These are my thoughts about the subject and nothing more. I just want to answer the “What If?”.
I know this is all pointless, but if somehow you could make a sequel… what would the story be? Everyone who has ever read the novel knows that it can have such a bitter end that your character wouldn’t even be in a sequel. In one of your stories or your favorite playthrough you may have made your robot double, but since there is one game ending where you die, you can’t have a sequel where you play as said character. Same goes for your robot! There is a good chance that your robot may have died in one ending! So you would need to play as a whole new character. A new character in the world affected by the legacy of your old character.
So it would have to start by picking what was the old character’s legacy, from there it would decide the condition your character lives in? Who would your character be? Well my first thought was the character should be a robot. A victim to your choices. I mean, at the end of “Choice of Robots”, they don’t really say what happens after you die/create a robotic double. You simply die with no idea what happens next (which makes since your character is now dead and won’t see what happens next).
The whole thing would be a mess of you making choices that would describe what your old character did. I mean you have to say if your character made a double, did they die, what legacy did they have, what type of robot you are, etc.
I don’t have much time to write down every detail, but this is just what I would think it. I know that the person who posted that comment may be a little disappointed to hear that there may never be a sequel, I know I am. That doesn’t change the fact that “Choice of Robots” is an amazing novel and maybe its for the best that it doesn’t have a sequel.
This is just me immagining the “What If”. Anyone that likes or dislikes my idea can just drop what they think down below and I read 'em. Like I said before, this is what I thought and I don’t want to cause any trouble. “Choice of Robots” was never written to have a sequel.
Quick shoutout to Kevin Gold for writing two interractive novels I found amazing. Both were probally the only novels I tried to get every ending to. If you have Steam you can go here and get both of those novels in the “Kevin Gold Bundle” here http://store.steampowered.com/bundle/763/ 25% perecent off people!
