Choice of Games announced today that “The ORPHEUS Ruse,” 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.
Infiltrate the enemy as a psychic spy, leaping from body to body by touch! But when your own body is stolen, you’ll race against time to find it before your mind disintegrates.
“The ORPHEUS Ruse” is the thrilling interactive spy novel by Paul Gresty, where your choices determine how the story proceeds. The game is entirely text-based-without graphics or sound effects-but driven by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

B) Absolutely not. The idea is abhorrent.
C) Lie about my abilities.
D) Threaten to posses the contact, and pull any information I need from his mind instead.
