Description

America's #1 reality show for heroes is back for another season! Harness your superpowers to steal the spotlight, win votes, and save your sister!

"The Hero Project: Redemption Season" is the first installment in a new series of interactive novels by Zachary Sergi set in the "Heroes Rise" universe. Your choices control the story. It's entirely text-based--129,000 words, without graphics or sound effects--and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

In a contest where everyone has superpowers, your opponents can cause earthquakes and explosions, but you're an average Ani-Powered who wakes up with different animal attributes every day. Will your hawk eyes or canine claws take you far enough in the competition to satisfy the only person who can help your sister? And what happens if winning isn't enough?

As you advance, the decisions you make will transform viewers' ideas of what it means to be a hero. Will you fight for your own goals, or make sacrifices for the good of society? Strive for what you believe is right by following the rules, or take down the whole system with more radical methods? Would you take wealth and fame over changing the world?

Choose wisely. It's Redemption Season.

• Play as male, female, trans, or nonbinary; gay, straight, or bi.
• Begin a new story in Millennia City, influenced by your actions in the "Heroes Rise" trilogy.
• Play as a new hero, in a new season of The Hero Project!

The story is great- except for the sermonizing

Yermog

The writing of this game is fantastic, and the world you play in seamlessly flows from the world of Heroes Rise- sometime shifting focus of story/characters can make you feel like it’s a different setting, even if it all takes place in the same city. I especially enjoyed all the different powers and characters shown in the story. I also very much like the story itself, with the reality TV show, the PC’s strange powers, and the shocking twist in the story revealing the Big Bad.

However, the entire story is utterly riddled with social commentary and seemingly non-stop condemnation of racism, sexism, and bigotry. These things are important issues, but it feels like we’re beaten over the head with them at times. One of the characters, a straight white male (from the South no less! Horror of horrors!) is called out by a trans character for being, surprise surprise, a bigoted, privileged, white male. The man was already written as sort of a jerk character, at that point you’re just trying to write him as a villain. That’s just ONE example

If you overlook those issues- and they’re hard to ignore because it feels like they’re literally everywhere in the story- it’s a very fun game to play through, and I love my character and her relationship with her sister, JK. I hope the next game isn’t so heavy-handed with the Social Justice though.

Couldn’t connect with the MC

This game takes a lot of liberties with the way your character thinks and how they look at the world. It is completely out of your control, you can have a bad relationship with other characters, try to be cutthroat and manipulative, yet can’t help but to be ‘inspired’ or ‘uplifted’ by them. I wanted to play the game as a bitter underrepresented separatist, who sympathized with the games antagonists... and they are options that suggest you can do that, but no matter what, through the narrative you are not that person. I wanted to play as someone who doesn’t like the idea of being idolized or deified, but again no matter what your character will feel like it is their duty to speak for other people. I didn’t feel like this when I played the first trilogy.

Falls far short of previous efforts...pass

The reality show was probably the high water mark of this author's other series, but this one just appears to be long on wind and short on action.

Question: what sort of RPG has you describe your character's powers long before basic facts like your character's gender or orientation? Presumably this is some sort of message from the author, but I came here for a fun adventure, not to read the pretentious opinions of some windbag.

Give this one a pass. If you want to see a Choice of Games app that handles political messages well, try Choice of Robots or the Hosted Game Choice by Gaslight, which have amazing writing and interesting choices.
