Choices is by the team that first created story games for mobile over a decade ago. Later we created Surviving High School and Cause of Death, the first games with episodes, for EA.
Both games hit the Top 25 and were inspirations for other companies. After leaving EA, our team regrouped in a small office and with the quacking of nearby ducklings we set out to create story-driven games with heart. As Pixelberry, we launched two hit games, High School Story and Hollywood U.
Our team has now grown to over a dozen of the most experienced game writers in the industry. In our 10 years of creating story games together, we’ve seen heartbreak, marriages, great adventures, and even Pixelbabies.
But even through diaper changes and late nights, we think we’ve created our best work to date. We hope you’ll fall in love with our newest characters, Chris, James, Kaitlyn, Dave, and Sam just as we have.

Fun Game, Terrible keys and diamonds
First off, I’m rating this a one star because you need diamonds to make choices but only get ONE diamond per chapter and almost all decisions that are worth making cost TWENTY diamonds, you can buy diamonds in the store but they are outrageously priced for the amount you get, 2.99 for 50 but keep in mind that will literally only get you two decisions. They need to be more realistic, maybe 5 diamonds per decision and then the 2.99 for 50 would be worth it. Also Keys...to open and read a new chapter you need a key, these are time based so every 2+ hours you get a key, this draws out the game a bit which isn’t bad but keys don’t keep adding up, once you get two it stops. That’s BS since I generally like to play in the evening and 2 chapters is not nearly satisfying, maybe 5 would be better?!?! Also the cost to buy keys is ridiculous too. I’m not against paying for in app features but I’m not paying for something that doesn’t add up to being worth my time.
Now for the game, THIS GAME IS FANTASTIC, very dramatic, catchy to read and keeps me on my toes. Adds drama to my fictional life that I definitely don’t want in my real life! Haha. I would give this a 5 Star if they made the app more realistic. Sick of being stuck on the same question and unable to earn enough diamonds to make the game worth my time.
So I must admit the stories are compelling and the graphics are cool. But that’s about it. If you’re not careful, you’ll spend hundreds of dollars just to advance properly in the story. No reason it should cost me 25 diamonds to access a dress that will give me an extra scene to make my character happy, but at the end of the chapter I get only 1 diamond. I literally have spent over $100 on this game and you would think for $100 they’d just give you access to all the “diamond” choices. But nope! Want more diamonds you have to pay. Also, I’ve played “episodes” which is is similar game, and they allow you to refill 4+ more keys at a time. I believe you can buy an unlock to have more keys refill, not just buy keys and when they’re gone your back to only 2 keys. It takes over 2 hours to get a key in this game. Maybe think of ways ppl can buy the story in full, or make mini games ppl can play and win 20+ diamonds. Or hell, even the most simple games have a daily reward or a wheel you spin to win ‘diamonds and keys’. Like c’mon. This is a rip-off, and it doesn’t have to be.
Glitchy at best, pay to play at worst
I’ve played this app since it started out, and I enjoyed it and occasionally bought diamonds for it. Now, you can’t do anything in the stories without diamonds. Want to wear something besides the lbd? Diamonds. Want to talk to a love interest? Diamonds. And if you don’t use diamonds, you’re constantly shamed in game for not doing so, with characters outright insulting you or your fashion. Some of the chapters are playable in two minutes unless you spend diamonds, because they’ve cut out so much content and blocked it behind the paywall. This, and the fact that there’s no way to earn diamonds without paying for them, or a measly single diamond for completing (some) chapters, makes it a very unfun experience if you don’t spend money.
And even besides that, there was a game breaking bug that rendered the app completely unplayable. It affected something like 25-30% of players, for weeks. And what does this update do to compensate for the time lost? Nothing.
Assuming you even can play the app behind the game breaking bugs, don’t. You can’t do anything anymore without money. Your wallet will thank you,
