Choice of Games announced today that “VERSUS: The Lost Ones,” the latest in their popular line of multiple-choice interactive-fiction games, is now available on Steam, iOS, and Android.
Steal alien powers and absorb their memories! Can you outlast your opponents to escape from planet Versus?
“VERSUS: The Lost Ones” is a thrilling 123,000-word interactive novel by Zachary Sergi, author of our best-selling “Heroes Rise” trilogy. Your choices control the story. It’s entirely text-based-without graphics or sound effects-and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.
Become an interstellar warrior, gifted with the power to ransack the thoughts and abilities of others. Transported to an unfamiliar world beyond your wildest dreams, you must invade the minds of your fellow captives to survive.
Seduce Lady Venoma, a self-proclaimed goddess, or clash with Empress Vaccus, a tusked monster and the sworn enemy of your home world. Triumph in gladiatorial combat, or in the deadly politics of planet Versus.
For example, when you find yourself teleported to Versus, thrust into battle with the monstrous Empress Vaccus and half a dozen alien strangers, what will you do?
A) Flash-absorb the abilities of one of the alien strangers.
B) Fight Empress Vaccus directly, using my custom suit of armor.
C) Stun the monster with a mindbolt.
D) Reconnoiter, searching the monster for weak spots.
E) Assume the mouth is a weak spot, and focus my attack there.
Absorb the right talents, and you just might save the galaxy!
