Your boss, The Bull, the most dangerous gangster in New Orleans, has a job for you. Rescue your kidnapped lover--officially The Bull’s lover, but unofficially yours--before dawn. Slaughter everyone who stands in your way, including other gangsters, cops, and the Triad, as you slink across the underbelly of New Orleans.

"NOLA Is Burning" is a blood-soaked interactive noir thriller where your choices control the story. The game is entirely text-based--without graphics or sound effects--and powered by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

Will you outwit your enemies or take it to the mattresses with your trusty sawtooth? Will you earn respect as NOLA’s most infamous headcrusher, or will you retire to Mexico on a huge pile of cash? To be honest, you'll probably die. But in NOLA, death is just the beginning.

• Make deals with the cops, a Voodoo priestess, the leader of the local Triad, or a fallen priest.
• Mix old world magic and advanced technology in a fight to the death, and beyond.
• More than 70,000 words of interactive fiction, 15,000 words on every run through the game.

Okay but not as enjoyable when it goes to second half

This is the second COG game I have played. I think this is not a must-play game. The story is kinds of strange at the second half and defiantly not as catchy as the beginning.

It is okay to play with but there are other better options out there.

I don’t know man…

I don’t really write a lot of reviews of anything, but I feel like it is necessary for me to write this review.

First off, I think the game is just decent. It was a good time killer for me, obviously a great amount of effort put in and I enjoy the freedom it gives me, including choices that matter. But if I talk about restrictions, I will also include payments.

I respect the developer or team that was behind this game and I also respect them earning money from it. But this was probably one of the games I consider not spending anything on. For one thing, the first chapters that are free are pretty short, with only around 5-10 choices in each one. If you choose to have it free, you need to wait 2 hours for 5 minutes of reading and choosing a decision.
Furthermore the story sounds like self-insert fantasy and typical clichés that make the characters seem basic. Most of the time while playing, I cringed just by reading the options and the scene. It honestly sounds like this game was made by a 12-year old that wanted to make what they thought sounded cool. And I hope I’m not insulting the dev because this game is a good COG
Lastly I just wanted to give my thought on how I felt about this game. I like the game, believe me. It’s alright. But it’s actually sub-par and mediocre I can’t see myself just truly enjoying it, at least for me.

Amazing and replayable

I've played this "game" over and over to try and get the best ending. I love these types of games and I love the replayability aspect you get from these types of games that you don't get from books or video games. There's something about the hybrid between the two that strikes a perfect balance.
