About Us - Choice of Games Choice of Games LLC is a California limited-liability company dedicated to producing high-quality, text-based, multiple-choice games. We produce games in house, beginning with Choice of the Dragon and Choice of Broadsides. We have also developed a simple scripting language for writing text-based games, ChoiceScript, which we make available to others for use in their projects, and we host games produced by other designers using ChoiceScript on our website. Some of our games are available for free on the web. We also produce mobile versions of our games that can be played on iPhones, Android phones, and other mobile devices. We believe that text-based games are an underutilized format within modern computer games. If you are interested in developing games using ChoiceScript, we invite you to read our introductory guide to the ChoiceScript programming language. Please also feel free to contact us at email@example.com. Next: Why Multiple-Choice Games? Press Info
Hasbro Lazer Tag hands-on (video) The NERF has been dropped, but Hasbro's Lazer Tag system is still the same awesome toy we got a taste of in February. The difference is, now they're retail ready. Individual blasters, complete with iDevice dock, will hit shelves in just over a week, while packages of two are scheduled for October 1st. The companion iOS app is already available through iTunes, but a rep from Hasbro still describes it as being in beta form (an update is on its way that will remove that tag and simplify the initial set-up). The same rep was also nice enough to swing by the Engadget compound and deliver us a pile of blasters to test ourselves, which we immediately took out for a test run in Washington Square Park. Head on past the break for some impressions and a taste of our "Lazer" battle royale. Hasbro Lazer Tag Hands-On See all photos 27 Photos The hot glue and header pins are gone, but the basic design remains the same. There are three buttons that you'll need to master. Comments

Critical Distance Customer Reviews: Inheritance Pen and sword equally mighty for science fiction's Stephenson | Security & Privacy LAS VEGAS -- It's been a double-whammy of stardom for the attendees of the 15th annual Black Hat USA conference. Many people here suffered a line more commonly associated with Comic-Con or CES to get into an exclusive performance by electronica and trance legend Paul Oakenfeld at Club PURE last night. And then this morning, they rubbed the hangover from their eyes and the ringing from their ears to listen to an on-stage conversation with noted science fiction author Neal Stephenson in the Caesar's Palace convention center. Stephenson spoke for almost an hour with Brian Krebs, the investigative journalist who writes about security. While they ranged from his childhood influences to his books to his non-writing projects, Stephenson's face lit up as they discussed his recent Kickstarter project, "Clang." "The level of technical detail in [first-person] shooters is out of control," he said. Stephenson also discussed the darkening of science fiction, from its optimistic Golden Age roots.

While I understand this is a rant, and I'm totally okay with that because god knows I've ranted...but well. Okay, I agree on several points, SEVERAL points you're making, in fact over the last month we've had plenty of sexism/sexist articles on Kotaku which I don't mind for the most part (cept for the Bitch article...that was a non issue for me.) Here's the thing, Kotaku has to decide to pick WHICH article theme they want to go with each day, you can't have a blathering piece on whatever Felicia Day is doing and how cute she is and then in like the next three post "Feminist Whore achievement" the next. It's all about Page Hits and that's okay...however Kotaku knows EXACTLY whats going on when they post sexy articles or articles about some Jidol who plays games, J-idols wearing latex showing their boobs or a figurine or a game like Code of Princess, then on the EXACT SAME DAY post something along the lines of female mistreatment in gaming. Why?
Choice Of Games Releases Interactive Fiction Apps For Kindle Independent developer Choice of Games announced the release of two text adventure games, Choice of the Dragon and Choice of Broadsides, on Amazon's Kindle platform. Though the Kindle platform is mostly regarded as a service for purchasing digital books, both indie developers and major publishers have started releasing games there in recent months. Three of the top ten bestsellers in the Kindle Store are currently games ported by Electronic Arts: Scrabble, Monopoly, and EA Solitaire. Choice of Games is taking a different approach from EA, releasing interactive fiction titles instead of board/card game adaptations. Choice of the Dragon is a Choose Your Own Adventure-style release in which players take on the role of a dragon, looting and pillaging, dominating their local kingdom, finding a mate, and fighting wizards. Choice of Games says it has more games on the way for the Kindle Store. "Our games are perfectly suited for Kindle," says Choice of Games co-founder Dan Fabulich.
