Reckless Space Pirates: Plunder an Alien Colony or Defend It from Space Pirates!

Choice of Games announced today that “Reckless Space Pirates,” 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.

You have a choice: join a crew of space pirates to steal priceless slime from a nest of mushroom-like aliens-or hoodwink the pirates and team up with the mushroom colony to prevent an interstellar war!

“Reckless Space Pirates” is a thrilling interactive science-fiction novel by Rachel Zakuta 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 diplomatic relations with the aliens start to break down, and lieutenant Krantic orders the pirates to kill them, what will you do?

A) Shoot at the aliens.
B) Shoot Krantic.
C) Shout, “Hold your fire!”
D) Point my gun at Krantic, but don’t shoot yet.
E) Grab Krantic’s gun.

Will you survive the infamous space-slime pits? Will you earn the respect of the crew, or even start a romance with a space pirate? Can you negotiate with the fungoid aliens, despite linguistic and cultural barriers? Or will you blast their rubbery guts, plunder the slime pits, and retire in luxury?
