Steal alien powers and absorb their memories! Can you outlast your opponents to escape from planet Versus?

"VERSUS: The Lost Ones" is a thrilling 123,000-word interactive novel, the first in a new series, 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.

Become an interstellar warrior, gifted with the power to ransack the thoughts and abilities of others. Transported to an unfamiliar world beyond your wildest dreams, you must invade the minds of your fellow captives to survive.

Seduce Lady Venuma, a self-proclaimed goddess, or clash with Empress Vaccus, a tusked monster and the sworn enemy of your home world. Triumph in gladiatorial combat, or in the deadly politics of planet Versus. Absorb the right talents, and you just might save the galaxy!

• Fight for humans or androids in a morally ambiguous civil war
• Play as male, female, transgender, intersex, or a non-categorizable gender identity
• Subvert the corrupt Elite Courte, or join them to suppress rebellion
• Romance aliens, crossbreeds, and intergalactic royalty, or go it alone--the choice is yours
• Dive into a sci-fi hybrid of space operas, futuristic dystopias, fantasy epics, and political chess

Amazing Game. Worth every cent!

I don't review apps ever. This game though, is so satisfying good. I feel as if I don't review it it'll be a disservice to the author lol. The story is engaging and entertaining to the very end(the story's not over tho). Choices you make in this game DO matter! You feel the consequences of your decisions and its oh so gratifying. The characters are unique and each have their own personality. Your moral views are tested and pressured through the experience. Which might not be to somes taste. Though, I find it alluring.
Purchase this game! It is so so so so so worth it. Excellent experience! 10/10

One of the best

I love these text adventures and I've played most of them. This one stands right at the top, alongside The Lost Heir, Heroes Rise, Sabres of Infinity and Zombie Exodus. Versus might be my favorite - I wish the sequel were already out. The writing is excellent, the setting creative, and the choices one makes drastically impact the story. The diverse powers and motivations available to your character guarantee you will want to play through many times. Definitely worth your investment - you need to check this one out !

I like weird, but...

This was just too weird for me. But I guess if you like absolutely no character development, a sidekick who’s in a coma for basically the entire book, and frequent random teleportations that make you wonder if the protag is just hopped up on drugs the whole time, then read on. But be warned- the basic plot is you getting dropped off on some random bloody planet and being confused the whole. freaking. time.
No actual progress further than that, and the parts with some action have no real risks. There’s just more backstory than I would care to swallow, and I felt myself skipping paragraphs upon paragraphs of some random planet’s history or whatever.
Probably not going to buy the next book.
