Choice of Games today announced that "Choice of Kung Fu," the
latest in their popular line of multiple-choice interactive-fiction
games, is now available for iOS, Android, and, via the Chrome Web
Store, Windows, OS X, and Linux.
Become the greatest fighter the world has ever known, harnessing
the power of chi to manipulate the energies of the universe. Defeat
rivals, find romance, and rise to become the Imperial Champion. Win
the right to question the immortal Dragon Sage, who speaks just
once every hundred years!
Choice of Kung Fu is a fast-paced interactive fantasy novel
where your choices determine how the story proceeds. The game is
entirely text-based--without graphics or sound effects--but powered
by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.
For example, when an outlaw with a spear charges to attack you,
what will you do?
A) Pounce toward him at the last moment, springing like a tiger,
and bring an elbow down on his head.
B) Dart off to the side, balancing on one leg like a crane
before delivering a swift kick to his knee.
C) Weave hypnotically in my stance, and when he strikes, I am no
longer there; I launch a series of quick, snakelike strikes to the
pressure points in his exposed rib cage.
D) Make a series of flashy moves that draw his target toward my
right side, then move to the left, delivering a reiken strike to
the right side of his head as he passes by.
E) Remain still, my hands low at the chi center of my body, and
at the moment he would hit me, circle his spear away and shift
myself away from the strike.
The fate of the Middle Kingdom depends on you! Will you play as
male or female? Gay or straight? Will you battle against foreign
invaders, or will you rise up against the Emperor? What question
will you ask the Dragon Sage, the wisest of all creatures?
