A good story and a good game
You are the eldest child of a minor noble family and you’re being sent to court to make your fortune and in the process increase that of your family, in a land where the stability and prosperity of the realm depends on the delicate balance between the light and dark sides of magic (both capable of good or evil) nobles are heir to. From this classic premise you will play out a story of passionate romance, chilling intrigue and electrifying adventure. But of course AotC is more than just a good story.
What makes the game so good is that it knows how to make the CYOA genre enjoyable, by focusing on the INNER story of your character, for which you make every choice from your gender to your strengths and weaknesses to your motivations and goals and of course every meaningful decision you must make to navigate the many crucibles and crises you encounter.
Instead of trying to change the overarching story too much, which actually plays out quite linearly and predictably, a good CYOA means you will decide the HOW and the WHY of a story, which I think is what really immerses you in your character and the world around them. Loved it from start to finish, every step worth the full price.
The Best Choice Game
The first part of the story is completely free which is nice but I chose to buy the 2 other parts of the story and it is DEFINITELY worth it. The sheer amount of endings and choices and drama is just insane and it makes the game interesting enough to be played over and over again. I’ve already played multiple times and still haven’t gotten even close to finishing all the endings there are.
BUT the one thing I am a little disappointed in is that in order to reach the other 2 parts of the story and experience multiple endings you have to finish the first part of the story with the King. If you choose the other 2 suitors then the story ends with you marrying them and there’s not much else to it. Would be nice if there was a bit more variation to their endings as well. But overall this is THE most interesting choice game out of all the ones I’ve played!
Not For Everyone
If you are a person who loves reading, but you often found yourself wishing to change the ending, characters personality, gender, sexuality choices, or anything else then this is the game for you. It gives you a lot of options, while also keeping up with a easy to follow story that is compelling while also based on your options. I would recommend this game to avid readers, or those you find themselves playing games like Choices: Story You Choose, Episode, or Chapters. This game is just like those. It just doesn’t have art in it. That can often throw people off but trust me, this game is fun and interesting. I love it.
