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?

About Choice of Games

Choice of Games was founded by Dan Fabulich and Adam Strong-Morse in 2009. They produce text-based interactive novels for mobile platforms and the web, combining the delicious freedom of the 1980s' choose-a-path gamebooks with the depth and scope of a bestselling novel. Choice of Games adventures have been awarded First Place in IntroComp 2011 (Choice of Zombies), "Best Roleplaying Game of the Year" by JayIsGames (Choice of the Dragon), and Honorable Mention in the IGF Nuovo Awards (Choice of Broadsides).

In addition to developing their own games in-house, Choice of Games has created an easy-to-use programming language for writing text-based games, ChoiceScript, and publishes games written by other designers.
