Can a wanna-be hero like you rescue the city of Kendrickstone, held hostage by an evil wizard and his troop of black-clad soldiers? Face down fierce foes with spell, sword, or silver tongue. Outwit cunning rivals, cement your fledgling reputation, and maybe, just maybe, make enough money to pay your rent!

“The Hero of Kendrickstone” is an epic 240,000-word interactive fantasy novel by Paul Wang, 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.

Step into the shoes of a fledgling adventurer in a world full of magic and mystery! Master physical combat, magic, stealth, or diplomacy. Choose to befriend–or betray–sorcerers and knights, bandits and baronesses.

Will you spend the last of your silver on a bed for the night, or potions for your next adventure? Will you spend your evenings studying ancient secrets, or prize-fighting for extra coin? Will you seek a mentor to help hone your skills, or strike out on your own? Will you prove to be a paragon of compassion, or a callous mercenary? Will you die forgotten and un-mourned, or will you become the Hero of Kendrickstone?

Next Part!?!?

This isn’t really a review I just need to know when the next part is coming out



Ok not really like Skyrim obviously but the world, the story is set in, has that feel to it. Unlike every other choice game this one actually HAS a more well thought out, detailed endings. Readers of my reviews know that I read all choice games and that short crappy endings are a peeve of mine.
Play as a Mage, thief, knight, bard or some combination of that.
Join up with others in the story or be a line wolf player.
Some choice add layers on to the story but don't make any difference to the main story line. Sadly the story's main out line is the same no matter what role you choose.
It would have been better to have even more separate stories for greater replay value.
But that would have meant more work.
That being said its a challenging game. Almost too challenging. I played 6 times trying to achieve a certain goal as a Mage. Only to find out that unless I was willing to fight like a knight I was always going to fail.
So that kind of game mechanic doesn't make me happy.

Still absolutely 5 stars.

If you make it to the end their seems to be an intent to continue the adventure in a new story app.
I'm looking forward to it as this now makes my top 5 choice games of all time!



Was in the mood for a generic medieval fantasy setting so I picked this one up. It's okay compared to other choice games but didn't capture me. The writing was fine but the game elements felt very tacked on as if it didn't matter what my actual stats were in most cases.

That said the ending is amateur hour and unforgivable. After playing for several hours the final boss fight amounts to "a pick the right choice because I'm the author and this is what I say needs to happen," event. I didn't pick the right choice and was given a prompt "you died" screen. No epilogue, no interesting details about what my characters death and failure meant for the rest of the generic fantasy world, nothing. There are many better choice games out there and this one is not worth your time unless you've played all those other ones.
