Pick carefully, your choices impact what happens next! Discover thousands of possible endings while solving crimes, embarking on fantastical adventures, changing the course of history, and even falling in love. Current stories include:

THE GOLDEN THREAD. In the era of Julius Caesar, a young woman returns to ancient Rome after years of exile to clear her dead father's name and regain her place as a powerful aristocrat. Along the way, she'll change the fate of Rome itself, forging a powerful empire that history never experienced. Choose your friends, advisors, and alliances wisely! A story of love, rebirth, and familial bonds awaits.

HEREAFTER. When Celeste Crowe’s plans were cut short by her untimely death, she thought things couldn’t get any worse. But when her daughter Fiona’s spirit appeared in the afterlife, it left her with only one choice -- descend into the Labyrinth to get her out. The souls of the Labyrinth and ancient beings of the Library will hammer her resolve, but no one has seen a spirit as determined as Celeste’s. Can you redeem your karmic debt by helping tortured souls find inner peace so they can move onto paradise? You’ll find some truly difficult decisions along the way!

INSIDE: BACKWATER. An affluent New York City psychiatrist leaves her life behind to join a rural Christian cult undercover after her estranged sister's membership in the group puts both her life and the lives of others at risk. The FBI is concerned that the Church of Last Hope, which dominates the all-but-abandoned mining town of Backwater, Pennsylvania, has been stockpiling dynamite - all legally obtained through a small, insignificantly small mining corporation they own. Only thing is, the town of Backwater is built on top of a coal fire that's been burning since the 1960s. Smoke comes up through holes in the ground, fiery sinkholes have swallowed four different homes without warning. No one is mining in Backwater these days. So what are they doing with those explosives?

Are you guys updating?

I love this app it’s so fun it’s like episode, choices, and hooked all mixed in one. Are you guys gonna updated this app because I want more and i hope it’s not discontinued. Btw, every time i log back in the game i have to keep starting over instead of leaving where I left off for example, when I play truchange, I play the first two episodes but once I wait for the next keys I have to start over again at episode one ?! it’s really annoying can you please fix this? Where can we save the progress of the game?

Dear creator,

I LOVE this game. But how do you get keys?! Is the only way to get them buy paying REAL money?! Or do you get them some other way. I understand in-app-purchases. But not if it means you cannot play the game without playing. Thank you for the story’s. I have JUST started and I already love it! Please answer my question. Thank you for your time.

Dear person who may get game,

If you like episode and hooked, try this out!

Cool story games with choose your own adventure style decisions, but with more interesting visuals than what's out there. Looking forward to see the stories to come out on this app! Pretty fun so far.
