NOLA Is Burning: A blood-soaked New Orleans noir thriller
Choice of Games announced today that “NOLA Is Burning,” 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.
Your boss, The Bull, the most dangerous gangster in New Orleans, has a job for you. Rescue your kidnapped lover-officially The Bull’s lover, but unofficially yours-before dawn. Slaughter everyone who stands in your way, including other gangsters, cops, and the Triad, as you slink across the underbelly of New Orleans.
“NOLA Is Burning” is a blood-soaked interactive noir thriller where your choices control the story. The game is entirely text-based-without graphics or sound effects-and powered by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.
For example, when a bunch of gutterpunks who work for a rival mob boss have you surrounded, what will you do?
A) Fight. One thing The Bull taught me is to die with honor, unless I kill them first….
B) Maybe I can talk them into letting me go. Hell, they might even help. Everyone hates the guy I’m supposed to kill.
C) Give up and tell them to take you to their boss.
Will you outwit your enemies or take it to the mattresses with your trusty sawtooth? Will you earn respect as NOLA’s most infamous headcrusher, or will you retire to Mexico on a huge pile of cash? To be honest, you’ll probably die. But in NOLA, death is just the beginning.
