Become the greatest telepathic villain Los Diablos has ever known! Once you were famous; soon you will be infamous. That is, unless your old friends in the Rangers stop you first. Juggle different identities and preserve your secrets as you build new alliances and try to forget the friendships you've left behind.

"Fallen Hero: Rebirth" is a 380,000 word interactive novel by Malin Rydén, where 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.

• Hone your telepathic talents, possess people and venture into their minds.
• Build your own personalized combat armor: be a terrifying super-strong behemoth, a mysterious speedster or anything inbetween.
• Make alliances or enemies in the Los Diablos underworld while you outfight and outthink the heroes set against you.
• Explore relationships as straight, gay, bisexual or aromantic. Romance a mad scientist, your former partner, or both.
• Juggle two bodies and three identities, play as male, female or genderqueer.
• Above all; make sure your past never catches up with you.

How far will you fall down the path of villainy?

Good writing but unsatisfying motivation


The good: You’re playing a character who is struggling emotionally. I would say that she had a mild personality disorder (inability to trust other people) which was exacerbated by PTSD. Your choices and the writing manage to force you to stay within the constraints of your mental illness, while still allowing you some leeway about how to react in particular situations. Because of the skillful writing, you can feel some of her emotions, like you would in a good novel. More generally, the author really does know how to write well. Setting the scene and dialogue/banter are novel-quality, which is not the case in many CoG/Hosted Games.

The bad: A lot of information crucial to your character is revealed piecemeal throughout the story. I think some of it still hasn’t been revealed. This includes her history (events that made her the way she is), her goals, and the practical plans to accomplish them. Since your character would know all of these things, it left me feeling unable to fully absorb myself in her. I could feel her emotions like she was a whole person, but when I tried to think like her, she was a cardboard cutout.

No real complaints


So, this is a good game. It’s also a good story. The author gives the player choices to make that, as far as I can tell, do have an impact on how everything plays out. However, they aren’t afraid to tell the story they want to tell. The characters are interesting and fun to interact with. The setting is cool but it’s not the focus. I don’t really care for romance options but all of the dialogue felt real.
If you’re looking for a solid story that focuses on a six-fi hero setting, I think you’ll enjoy this one.
If you care at all about time, it took me about 5-7 hours to get through it. Great way to spend a quiet afternoon.

The author is a master.


I’ve been playing Choice of Games for forever and there’s only been a handful I can say I loved. I went into this one happy for the “Aromantic” option, but this story blew me away completely. I was talking to my friend about it as I played and we were both so immersed in my character’s struggles and self-loathing and anxiety. The story is so well written and I’m glad it will have multiple parts because it really needs that space. The entire storyline was engaging and tragic, like watching a superpowered war vet try to gain some normalcy in life. Absolutely loved it. Can’t buy sequel fast enough. Take all my money.
