Will you infiltrate the gods' Elite Courte, stealing their superpowers, or turn double agent and join them, taking your place among the divine?
"Versus: The Elite Trials" is a thrilling 140,000-word interactive novel by Zachary Sergi, author of our best-selling "Heroes Rise" trilogy. 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.
In this sequel to "Versus: The Lost Ones," as one of the prisoners trapped on planet Versus, you must vote for who will fight in deadly gladiatorial battles. Thirteen prisoners have formed a voting bloc, the Elite Courte, to ensure that they choose who lives and who dies.
But one of their so-called "gods" has a plan for revolution. Your power to steal superpowers and memories makes you the perfect spy--or the perfect double agent.

not bad but not amazing
I usually love ZS's games so I'm having a hard time figuring out why this game in particular just doesn't work for me.
I guess it feels like we're still doing a lot of literary (and literal) world building and not really following the main plot as much. If anyone asked me what the plot of this game was, I would have to shrug; a lot happened but none of it contributed to a coherent overall story, unlike the first game where I could tell you the plot. If the goal was to feel like a detective story, it missed the mark by a lot, which is really disappointing and very unlike the usual quality I see from these games.
I'm still going to keep hoping the next game makes sense of this one, but it will be with less enthusiasm for sure.
Heroes in space
Like heroes this is a great read. The effort put into it is nothing less than magnificent. Sadly, at times the writing could be more detailed. At other times it seems confused. Perhaps due to the enormity of the work, the author tried to put in. Also the gender bending and abbreviated writings tend to get old and make following the story difficult at times as it tends to pull the reader out of the story until you get used to it. All the little things that need tweaking resulted in this being rated at a 4 out of five.
You can certainly replay this.
I enjoyed all of the Heroes stories that's been written by this author and I've come to enjoy Versus as well. There's so much depth to the character you create and how it represents your own desires. I love delving into the lore and learning about all of your fellow Versians and their motivations. I was really touched by Grog's decision to save his people if he managed to become Reborn. Apart from this, I honestly would just replay this story over and over to go through the Wone chapters over and over again. Great work!
