    King of Dragon Pass > Alter Ego > Choice of the Dragon

    Beyond the Wall of Stars comes to mind as well, though its reception was awful. Still, the world needs more choose-your-own-adventure games instead of the usual interactive fiction.

    Choice was a fun little game. Ended up getting killed by some deity I had angered. Well, at least I aimed for divinity. It was a good way to die.

    Don't give me that fucking bullshit son. Ten minutes into the "game" and I'm still choosing whether I have leathery or scaly wings. And what color am I. And how many limbs do you have, o mighty dragon? What the fuck this has to do with anything? And how this is not a DraQ's wet dream?

    You don't have to answer any of these questions BTW, don't worry your little head.

    If it took you 10 fucking minutes to get to that part you're a really really slow reader.

    It's true that the colour, number of limbs and type of wings is a bit stupid. Except at the very start, right after you answer those questions, I do not remember them being used in descriptions, and they do not change anything to the story. I would have been ok if they had an impact on personality, reaction from people, or intrinsinc abilities.

    I'm probably going to do an interview with the devs. You can submit your questions to me via pm, if they are not purely for the lulz I'll likely include them.

    yeah I always skipped the "what color/gender" are you parts. If you choose the option to skip the scales color you're never asked for number of limbs or how smoothe/rigid you are - game just goes along with how big of a faggot you are.

    Also, it's actually interesting and fun and doesn't involve turning 30 pages every minute.

    I couldn't get a mate in the two times I went through. I wanted the green sea monster with the tons of treasure.

    that was really good.
    the game works remarkably well at putting player in dragon´s shoes, provides some good laughs along the way and even a bit of adrenalin here and there.
    replay´s due.
