Battle demons and undead attorneys, and win souls to pay back your student loans! At the elite demonic-law firm of Varkath Nebuchadnezzar Stone, you'll depose a fallen god, find romance, and maybe even make partner, if you don't lose your own soul first.
"Choice of the Deathless" is a necromantic legal thriller by Max Gladstone, Campbell Award-nominated author of Three Parts Dead and Two Serpents Rise. The game is entirely text-based--without graphics or sound effects--and powered by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.
• Explore a fantasy realm with a rich and evolving backstory, based on the novels published by Tor Books.
• Play as male or female, gay or straight, dead or alive (or both).
• Build your career on carefully reasoned contracts, or party all night with the skeletal partners at your firm.
• Navigate intrigue and mystery in a world of scheming magicians and devious monsters.
• Look for love in at least some of the right places.
• Balance student loans, sleep, daily commute, rent payments, and demonic litigation—hey, nobody said being a wizard was always fun.

Would be nice if...
There would be a direct sequel to this, Vega and main character *nudge* *nudge* I love the world and surroundings of this out of all the CoG games, I couldn't have asked for a better author and a better series setting, I adored the love scenes and even though they were not the main purpose of the story, it provokes wonderful feelings nonetheless! I'd love to see more MC and Vega action when it comes to those romantic scenes, so silky smooth and suave! A side Novella would be an interesting thing to write up, or an actual full-on romance CoG game, because lets face it, there's not much of romance in 'Choice of Romance'...sorry but it wasn't that great of a romance game :^) I love a love-interest character with details and well defined personality, instead of being just there for you to pick and choose to get with :) great game!!
The Senior Partners want to see you
This is an engaging, fun read, and a cool game. It's a choose-your-own-story, with a vein of supernaturalism. Your choices affect stats which track things like your affinity with different characters, your income and debt, and your available levels of power.
If you're a fan of BioWare games, especially one who enjoys those long moments staring at the screen trying to make a big decision, you'll love this. It's made of those kinds of decisions.
If you were a fan of the demonic law firm Wolfram & Hart in TV's Joss Whedon's "Angel," you'll love this. W&H could be a competitor firm to the one you work for.
If you've actually been through law school or know someone who has, you'll love this in a sort of painful way. And might recognize some of the demons.
Lovely Piece of Work!
I'll keep this review short and sweet.
It has all of the literary elements a good read could have, a great sense of development of the characters you interact with, and each choice that you make is a whole new perspective on who you are.
Brilliant work! I hope you do make more.
