Product Description

Choice of the Star Captain is the hilarious interactive science-fiction novel where you control the main character. In each chapter, your choices determine how the story proceeds.

Fight on the front lines of the war between humanity and the Blobs, an alien race that must be hideous, but no one's ever gotten a good look at one. (Come on, they're Blobs. They have tentacles. Of course they're hideous!) Go on bombing runs, blockades, and stealth missions, "aided" by Lloyd, your insufferably obnoxious shipboard computer.

If you like gamebooks, you'll love Choice of the Star Captain. Its unique approach to interactive fiction allows larger, deeper, and richer stories than traditional gamebooks. There are many different endings; good luck finding them all.

Humanity needs you, star captain! Will you defeat the Blobs and come home as a war hero? Will you uncover the secret that sparked the Blob invasion? Will you act as ambassador, surrendering humanity to the Blobs? The choice is yours.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Step Up In 'Choose Your Own Adventure' Games October 31, 2012
Verified Purchase
E-Readers are a natural environment for 'Choose Your Own Adventure' games. Paperback books were clunky & cumbersome, but e-readers allow effortless branching; and so this type of format is continuing to evolve & improve - and everyone is a winner. Choice of the Star Captain is an example of this evolution. Earlier types of these games offered choices that primarily affected the 'flavor' and the 'direction' of the story, and your choices usually moved you towards one or more goals.

With 'Choice of the Star Captain' you will find yourself making some hard choices about the morality of your captain. Not only will your choices affect the success of your missions, but they will also effect the lives of other people in the story. This is a multi-layered story where things (and people) are not always what they seem. I also liked the fact that there were multiple missions for the star captain to go on. Not enough by a longshot for my liking, but that in itself demonstrates how successful this story is. It leaves you wanting more.

One of the non-mission elements of the story is the relationship between your captain and the ship's computer. I would have liked to see more flexibility in the relationship that would have allowed more growth between both entities - not just the captain. Most of the information that we get about the officers in the fleet organization are first-person perspectives and, thus, are rather short & shallow. It would have been nice to see these characters 'fleshed-out' a little more, especially if there is going to be a sequel to this story.

The company that published this game, Choice of Games, has published many of the best games in this format, including 'Choice of Broadsides' and 'Affairs of the Court.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun choose your own adventure November 3, 2012
Verified Purchase
Choice of Games has done a great job again. Your a starship pilot working for the military in a war against an alien race. You and the ships computer, Lloyd, who I swear is HAL 9000's cousin, have many adventures. Or should I say misadventures. Heroes Rise is better, but this one is fun.

Used to love Choose Your Own Adventure books as a kid and it's great that something like this is available on Kindle. What impressed me was that the writing was good and the humor was smart and spot on. Hugely enjoyable and have read through multiple times to see how things change. Definitely recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Stars... Easy. April 19, 2013
This interactive fiction may be the best I have ever played. Lloyd is epic, and I ended with 117/100 Lloyd mpoints. An amazing story with many different endings. I loved how you could choose to beat Lloyd with a blunt tool for the last 93 seconds of your life, I got a kick out of that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Do you foment war or struggle for peace? December 19, 2012
Verified Purchase
You're the pilot of a tiny cargo ship with a computer with an attitude when you find yourself drafted into fighting a war that previously was none of your business. Immediately, you have to start calling the shots - is this a war you're willing to fight in until the death, or a war you'd rather have no part of? Once you figure out who your enemy is, you, and you alone, have the capability to save the Earth once and for all, or start helping the enemy in a potentially vain attempt to bring peace to the galaxy.
