Battle demons and undead attorneys, and win souls to pay back your student loans! At the elite demonic-law firm of Varkath Nebuchadnezzar Stone, you'll depose a fallen god, find romance, and maybe even make partner, if you don't lose your own soul first.

"Choice of the Deathless" is a necromantic legal thriller by Max Gladstone, Campbell Award-nominated author of Three Parts Dead and Two Serpents Rise. The game is entirely text-based--without graphics or sound effects--and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

  • Explore a fantasy realm with a rich and evolving backstory, based on the novels published by Tor Books.
  • Play as male or female, gay or straight, dead or alive (or both).
  • Build your career on carefully reasoned contracts, or party all night with the skeletal partners at your firm.
  • Navigate intrigue and mystery in a world of scheming magicians and devious monsters.
  • Look for love in at least some of the right places.
  • Balance student loans, sleep, daily commute, rent payments, and demonic litigation—hey, nobody said being a wizard was always fun.

Choice of the Deathless reviews and comments

A very nice narrative experience with cool choices that really make a difference, add to that a layer of humor, and we get a very interesting game! However, requires a good knowledge of English, it would be nice if translators look at the games of choice of games:)

If you like to read, this game is perfect. Remember those "Choose Your adventure" books: they propose a story, but you choose how to move forward. You Can do pretty much anything. It Took me almost four hours in total to complete a story, and I still want to start another and see what would have happened if I chose this or that one at that time or that other. Definitely, yes, I recommend this game.

Honestly, a good big surprise. I bought the game a little bit lucky luck, because it was on sale. No graphics, no music. But the story is great. Really great. Great enough for me to do it again a dozen times, without seeing everything. And I play again to pass the time. I made it play a friend once: direct purchase as soon as he left my PC. Very good game:)

A simple game of choosing your own story, but with many variants and choices that affect how you play. The story is very good and the universe is great, it is a shame that it is so short because I would love to live more adventures and have more words with the characters that are presented. For What it is worth is 100% recommended, although it has a slightly heavy English as it describes everyone in which it is developed in detail.

It's my first "Choice of" game, so I can't compare it. It was so much Fun for me though that I'm going to buy more Of the Publisher's games and it's absolutely worth its Price. The Idea of a text-based Attorney-death charmer game is pretty unique. And with that, the Core of the Game is already described: Attorney's Work combined with Death Incantations. Certainly a Niche Idea, but if you are interested in such a thing, you can buy this Game without hesitation.

NOTICE, THIS ANALYSIS IS A SPOILER OF THE GAME, THERE YOU ARE IF YOU READ IT! After I split the eggs with different contracts with demons to pay my debts (or at least half of them) and to flirt with my friend (with intimate scene and all Oh yeahh), my client kills me in front of hundreds of demons (why Coj... I listened to him?), I am saved thanks to my friends (to see if you find friends like these)... But I still die and I just become a skeleton. However, to my amig... Girlfriend (that I have linked! xD) does not care that I am a skeleton (some rare fetishes have, right?) and continues to my side while I am free of the mier... of contracts with demons. The end. 11/10 totally worth it.
