What if you could live your life over again?

In this text-based interactive fiction, you choose what happens next. It's in the style of pick-a-path gamebooks, but with over a thousand multiple-choice questions, it's much longer and deeper than traditional gamebooks. Alter Ego starts at birth and ends at death, including two substantially different versions, depending on whether you choose to be male or female.

Will you grow up to be confident and happy? Will you fight with bullies, or befriend them? Will you find a date to the senior prom? Will you marry and have kids, or start your own business and become a millionaire? The choice is yours.

This game will change your life.

(Alter Ego was originally published in 1986 for the Commodore 64, MS-DOS, Apple II, and Macintosh. The current edition of the Alter Ego game is a production of Choose Multiple LLC. This edition includes an updated interface and fixes bugs in the original version of the game, but the content of the game hasn't changed from the original 1986 version of the game.)

Kind of irritated

I’ve only had this game for about 2-3 days and have lived 2-3 alter ego lives. Ever single time I’m about to get married, my partner gets cold feet and leaves me at the altar despite being very trustworthy and even MENTIONING THAT THEY WANT TO GET MARRIED. I guess this is understandable at first, but it started to get really annoying when it happens every single time you want to get married. I don’t know if this is a bug/glitch or if it’s just how the game is, either way it’s making me not want to play the game anymore. But other than that, I have absolutely no other complaints.

Absolutely beautiful.

I really wish the lives lasted longer than this, but this was great. I love it so much. I’m gonna go play it again. Bye!
