OverviewOverview

Choice of Robots is a text adventure game where you make choices to affect the story. Unlike other choose-your-own-adventure games here you are designing robots. How you put them together and treat them will change the world. Will you show them the true meaning of love or conquer Alaska with your robot army?

It's also an epic story spanning over 300,000 words. With just text, you are drawn into a vast, unstoppable world. Along the way you build a unique robot character, defining how it looks and what it calls you. From here you make choices that might instigate or prevent a robotic uprising, teach your robots to love humanity or disdain it. Or maybe you will build a machine with artificial intelligence suitable to take control of the world's governments, start a war against the United States, and win, or just marry a human (or another robot) and start a family.

Play spans thirty years of robot-maker life as you journey from graduate school to the present day. You have to build robots but who you are and how you do it is up to you. Play as male or female, gay or straight. With nine characters to romance, four alternate climax chapters, and over seventy achievements to discover.

You can make the text larger and opt for a dark mode where the background is black. You can also enable/disable animated page turns.

On iOS you have the option to drag across to select each narrative option rather than tapping once to select and then again on Next to proceed. .

VoiceOver on iOS works very well with the text and choices.
