Choice of Robots
(User scores are recalculated daily)
Choice of Robots is a uniquely text orientated experience that is filled with over 300,000 words. It’s a science fiction themed adventure that blends novel with the interactive and delivers plenty of surprises.
Written by Kevin Gold the game is entirely text based with players given complete control over every single element of the game world. As the name suggests this world is inhabited heavily by robots with emphasis on players either instigating a robot uprising or preventing it completely by showing robots the meaning of love.
Of course due to the sheer depth of this interactive novel these are really just two small paths that are available in the wealth of choices. Choices such as building an artificial intelligence to enslave the government of the world, marry (human and robot options) or start the war in your own name.
Whatever your ultimate goal players will have thirty years as one of the worlds brilliant robot makers to pursue their end objective. With you as their creator and plenty of time how you shape your robots is completely under your control. In addition players can choose their gender, unlock over 70 achievements, romance 9 different characters and experience four very different climatic chapters.
While the lack of any presentation can be a little off putting to be begin with players will quickly find themselves deep in robot story and engulfed in their decisions. Without the distraction of graphics the game can break itself down and focus on the deliverance of a deep story with twice as many paths as similar games.
Choice of Robots delivers everything that it promises and is a great starting point in the Choice of Games franchise.
