Assassinate the shogun, then vanish without a trace in this interactive fantasy novel!

In the high-stakes game of politics between two feudal lords, you are a ninja village's chosen warrior. Earn glory for your clan as you battle your enemies, becoming a master of magic, combat, and stealth.

Choice of the Ninja is an epic interactive fantasy novel by Katherine Buffington, where your choices determine how the story proceeds.  The game is entirely text-based--without graphics or sound effects--but driven by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

Will you bring peace to your village, or return home in shame? Will you serve your daimyo obediently, or defy his orders for the greater good? Or will you use your powers of invisibility for personal gain? The choice is yours.

It's a good story with all the CoG literary talent, but there's not a lot to it. No romance, some plots weren't finished and it ends on a cliffhanger so steep, I didn't realize 'The End' button was actually the end. I recommend getting the other CoG games until this is 1.99 or there's a content update. To the author: you obviously have talent and I'd like to read more about this story

Great improvement!

I enjoyed the first version of Ninja, but the updated version greatly expands the original story and makes it a more in-depth game. I was disappointed that there were no new missions following the ending, just more detailed versions of the old ones, though the expansions for those missions are fun and intriguing. Honestly, it feels like this version should have been the original, but now that the foundation has been properly laid, I, along with all the other Ninja fans, eagerly await new missions and adventures! Especially can't wait to see what happens with the main character's love interest!

Huge improvement

I played this game when it was first released and was frankly unimpressed. Thankfully, after the update the content in this game has improved to the point that it is worthy of the CoG title. All new (and vastly improved) endings, revamped missions, and an excellent romance plot have been added. It is a little sad most people wont even stop back to see how much better this game has become.
