ADVENTURE 1: And The Sun Went Out

Approximately 600,000 words and 2,400 choices in total!

What if the sun inexplicably vanished only to return hours later? Investigate with your AI companion, Moti. Uncover conspiracies. Discover ancient religions. Travel the globe.

Find out who is murdering scientists and what this has to do with the random disappearances of the sun. This is your journey, and only your choices can expose the truth.

ADVENTURE 2: And Their Souls Were Eaten

You have a gift. With your gift, the dead are never truly gone.

But what if there is a dark side to your gift? What if there are those who can pervert your talent, and alter the balance of life and death?

Travel across a steampunk 1830s Europe, where metal is magical, giving powers to those who wear it. Learn more about your ancient gift and what it means for you, your family, and humanity. Uncover the nefarious plot to destroy all life... and fight against time to stop your enemy from destroying everything you hold dear.

ADVENTURE 3: And Their Heroes Were Lost

You wake up in a dirty prison cell with no memory of who you are. And, you're not alone. Who are the other prisoners? What are they to you? Are they your allies... or enemies?

Will you escape? Try to find out who you are? Why did the people who captured you steal your memories—instead of just killing you? Travel the world as you uncover the details of a past that holds many secrets, and a future that is in peril.

This story is ongoing and updated weekly!

"What’s really innovative about Choices...unlike traditional gamebooks that have a definite end, Choices: And the Sun Went Out is a continuing gamebook that will be updated weekly, allowing you to progress through the story over time. As you make choices in your story, it will advance in ways completely differently than other readers when weekly content is added." -

Really amazing story, fair systems

I love the game, it’s a lot of fun and a great story. I’ve only gotten through most of « and the sun went out » but im hooked.
There is a fair system for making money. there are « choice tickets » you use one choice ticket every time you make a choice. To gain them you can either wait, watch ads, or purchase them. I will usually just watch a ton of ads when I am doing something else (like watching tv) until I have about 100 tickets, then play until im almost out.


Cyoa but the choices rock

I have so far completed arcs one and two of the sun went out, and I LOVE this game so far. The plot is riveting and the writing flows really well. The choices are my favorite. They are so balanced, and sometimes hard to make. I have always loved the concept behind cyoa but sometimes got bugged when the choices would have nothing to do with the results of said choices. But this game gets that right. And don’t be turned away at the thought of in app purchases! They feed you choice tickets in enough other ways for you to easily make it through without spending a dime. They do this through ads and by giving freebies as time passes.


I’ve completed all 13+ arcs (think episodes) of the sun went out, and the plot twists get SO JUICY!

In short, IT’S AMAZING PLAY IT ASAP! Think hooking tv show, but you read it, and it’s interactive.

That girl that likes anime

Amazing game

This app has great stories that keep you engaged as long as you have "choice tickets". They allow you to make a decision and progress the story. You can purchase them or get free ones every few hours. I'm totally fine with this system (gotta make a profit somehow). I like to hoard up a bunch of free tickets and then get to binge read. I was saving them up again and had 18 of them but after I updated the app they got reset. Oh well.
This is still one of the best text adventure stories that I have found though!
