Choice of Games: Fool!

Fool! is Choice of Games’ latest release: a 420,000-word interactive fantasy novel by Ben Rovik – author of the self-published Mechanized Wizardry series, a playwright (as Ben Kingsland) and professional actor.

Jest your way from obscurity to royal acclaim as the King’s pet, beloved by all! As a talented young court fool with dreams of fame, scrabble with other young jesters to secure prestigious positions in the courts of Brenton’s nobility. In a royal court humming with intrigue, keep them smiling as spies, assassins, blackmailers, ambitious nobles and a reluctant Heir wait in the wings.

Dive-roll into the tightrope world of Brenton’s courtly entertainers, where your jests can see you seated at the right hand of power, or set down to the gallows.

What manner of fool are you: the shrewd knave ever ready with a venomous quip? The renowned artiste at pains to stay above the political fray? The bawdy buffoon known as much for off-stage antics as on-stage mirth? Or the clever counsellor whose real audience is the noble ear they whisper into? Face unruly audiences onstage and skulduggerous schemers in the wings! Can you sling keen jests and still evade the whipping-post and assassin’s blade? The kingdom itself will be shaped by your choices!

  • Play as male, female, non-binary; gay, straight, bi or ace.
  • Evade tossed produce, whippings, assassins and the stocks with your wit and quick feet!
  • Battle a lifelong rival for artistic glory within a secret society of writers and gadflys!
  • Train your pet ape to master prodigious feats, or at least to stop biting you!
  • Mediate between nobles to forge compromise; or stir them up to your own advantage!
  • Partner with fellow thespians to win friends, or upstage them to win glory!
  • Balance your passion for the limelight with your passion for …passion!

When the Master calls, you’d do well to come running – with bells on!

Fool! is now available for Steam, Android, and on iOS in the Choice of Games Omnibus app. You can play the first three scenes of the game for FREE online, or purchase the full game at a 30% discount until May 30th. Visit the Choice of Games website for further details.
