It's the eight hundred and twenty first year of the city of Rome, a year of bad omens and unrest under a bloodthirsty Emperor.
Marcus is concerned with two things: his poetry, and keeping his patron Artus happy. But when Artus sends him to ask a secret question of an oracle, Marcus is forced to get involved -- with conspiracies, politics, and a woman he is trying to forget.
-- Guide Marcus through conspiracies and prophecies. Determine whether he lives or dies, whom he loves, and what his motives are
-- Interact with AI-supported characters who remember past events and respond dynamically to the player, becoming friends, enemies, or romantic partners
-- Discover your own outcome in a highly replayable story with many available endings, in which a single reading encounters less than 20% of the possible text
-- Unlock different relationships with other characters and experiment with how they change the story experience
Innovative tech, great storytelling!
The original Versu release featured stories in the vein of Jane Austen with not a lot of plot. This time, Emily Short creates an original tale of intrigue and mysticism in Ancient Rome that is both highly interactive and taughtly paced. Sometimes the Versu simulation shows its seams, but overall, it's an amazing step forward in fusing AI with narrative that will hopefully be built on with future Versu releases.
