Heroes Rise: The Prodigy reviews and comments

Heroes Rise: Magnum Opus? The Prodigy is a fascinating start into one of the greatest interactive novel trilogies to date, utilizing its mechanics not quite to their fullest, but well enough to rob you of your sleep nonetheless. By giving you a capticating story, lovable characters and glorious dialogues including snappy banter, witty puns and hilarious jokes, this game will slowly turn you into a real slugger! (Please forgive me. You'll get this sad excuse of a wordplay once you read the novel.) TL;DR: Heroes Rise: The Prodigy is the♥♥♥♥♥♥ But Heroes Rise's true narrative finesse lies in its overarching story, told throughout the whole trilogy. The Prodigy, The Hero Project and HeroFall gave me about 50 hours worth of brilliant literature. And while The Prodigy felt like the most sophisticated out of those three and marks a splendid beginning of a tale too great to ever forget, its successors are just as much worth your time and money. Buy, read and fall in love with all of them! TL;DR: Also, Prodigal is bae.

Even as a Child, I loved "Choose-Your-Own-Adventure" books like "Goosebumps." About a Year Ago I came across this Company. Since then, I've bought every one of their Games on my Tablet. The Game principle is quite simple. You read a Passage and then decide what the created Character should do. In addition, there are Attributes that you collect depending on the Way you play. So it's naturally harder for a Muscle-packed Character to sneak. In this Game you start as a young Hero who grew up with his Grandmother. Right at the Beginning you get your License and then you start. I don't want to tell You too Much then either. As far as the Creation of the Protagonist is concerned, there is a lot to Choose from. Name, superhero alias, Powers, Outfit, Gender and Sexuality (Here's anything possible. For everyone, there is at least one Romance. However, no one is Forced) to name but a few. And everything is dealt with in History. Those who are powerful in the English Language should definitely watch the Game. "Interactive fiction" is considered one of the UR genre of Video Games. Zork is a well-known representative here. This may seem too complex to some these days. But the "Choice-of-Games" guys have managed to develop a simple yet highly fun variant. In the Forum one also suggested that the Success of these two Games is important. At Least if we want to see more. And there's a lot there. Mecha Pilots, Rock Stars, Advocate of the Underworld, Sheriff of a Western City, Vampires in the South of the USA, Wrestling Superstar, Or Captain of the Navy are just some Roles that these Games have to offer. I am at least absolutely thrilled and can only hope that my Review will make one or the other look in.
