Choice of Games announced today that both games in their bestselling “Heroes Rise” series of interactive novels are now available on Steam. These are the first text-only games ever to be released on Valve’s platform.
“Heroes Rise” is an epic interactive novel series by Zachary Sergi, where your choices control the story. The games are entirely text-based-without graphics or sound effects-and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.
“There are some gorgeous visual novels on Steam,” said Dan Fabulich, co-founder of Choice of Games, “but there has never been a game on Steam without graphics or sound effects. We’re proud to bring an entirely new genre of games to this platform.”
Today’s release includes both “Heroes Rise: The Prodigy” and “Heroes Rise: The Hero Project,” clocking in at 100,000 words and 177,000 words respectively. In a single playthrough of each game, players will typically read more than 50,000 words, the size of a 200-page manuscript.
** A Huge Discount at Launch
During the first week of launch, each “Heroes Rise” game can be purchased standalone for $1.99, a 33% discount off the full $2.99 price. In addition, Steam buyers can purchase one $0.99 upgrade for “Heroes Rise: The Prodigy” and two $0.99 upgrades for “Heroes Rise: The Hero Project,” or buy both games plus all of the in-app upgrades for just $3.99, 55% off the full price.
“During launch week, Steam buyers will be able to buy the Heroes Rise games at our lowest price ever,” said Adam Strong-Morse, co-founder of Choice of Games. “Picking up Heroes Rise during launch week should be a no-brainer for our customers and loyal fans.”
