Description

Take a scientifically inaccurate romp in pirate-infested waters! Will you prove to the Royal German Marinological Society that mermaids really exist?

"The Daring Mermaid Expedition" is a 71,000-word interactive novel by Andrea Phillips, author of "The Daring Adventures of Lucy Smokeheart." Your choices control the story. It's entirely text-based--without graphics or sound effects--and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

You are an up-and-coming researcher, tasked with proving the existence of mermaids in order to be admitted to the exclusive Royal German Marinological Society. With a member of the Society as your patron, you’ll brave pirate attacks and dubious academics to fight your way to Broken Shell Island and scientize the mythical mermaid kingdom. Play as a vengeful mermaid-hater, dispassionate scientist, or soft-hearted daydreamer. Or just chuck it all and embrace piracy on the crew of the infamous Lucy Smokeheart herself!

Will you join the illustrious ranks of the Society, or wind up in prison for scientific fraud? Spend the rest of your life living underwater, or be devoured by carnivorous fish-people?

You’re on a mermaid expedition—it’s time to sink or swim.

• Ten distinct endings to discover!
• Develop statistics like academic rigor, credibility, and blood loss!
• 100% gender-neutral. Play whatever gender and sexuality you choose! We're not the boss of you!
• Dozens of achievements! Or maybe one dozen. Or more? Actually we're not sure how many, we lost count! But there are definitely achievements!
• Guaranteed to be at least 92% scientifically and historically inaccurate!
• Navigate tricky interpersonal situations with wit, charm, or awkwardness!
• Seduce your patron – or become bitter academic rivals!

Cheated me!

This game was great. Until it became a rip off.
I chose to try out the first 2 chapters for free, and then bought the remaining story because I wanted to continue. Once I bought it-- the game notified me that it could not download the latest version of the story. My money is gone and a few days later it still won't work.

The book missing that love I asked for

While it's pretty much perfect it's sad there is no behind the screen option to romance a mermaid

Letdown

The story was not bad but it was short and the choices really didn’t affect the game. I tried several different choices and the outcome was the same. The characters were really rushed and I didn’t feel anything for any of them.
