Choice of Games announced today that “Neighbourhood Necromancer,” 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.
Command the undead to take revenge on the suburbs! Oh, everyone at school laughed at you, but no one will laugh when your minions seize control of critical local infrastructure. Perhaps you’ll start by taking over a convenience store.
“Neighbourhood Necromancer” is a hilarious interactive horror novel where your choices control the story. The game is entirely text-based-without graphics or sound effects-and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.
For example, when you and your horde return to exact vengeance on the local hairdressers, what will you do?
A) Full-on undead assault.
B) Send a zombie in for a trim.
C) Attempt to lure the inhabitants out into the open.
D) Get a haircut and improvise while in the chair.
Will you rule suburbia openly or skulk in the shadows? Will your necromancing impress the cool kids at school? Will you use your dark powers to destroy your home town, or save it from the secret industrial/military operatives who have come to destroy you? The choice is yours.
• Become a teenage small-town necromancer.
• Play as male or female, gay or straight.
• Manage an unruly squad of walking corpses.
• Exact brutal vengeance, or struggle to maintain your humanity.
• Entertain unexpected house guests from beyond the grave.
