SAN FRANCISCO--November 30th, 2012: Choice of Games today announced that "The Fleet," 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.
Take back your home world from alien invaders! Forge an Intergalactic Alliance (with untrustworthy allies) to reclaim your planet; blast your way to victory with an ever-expanding arsenal. Will you sacrifice civilian lives to exact vengeance on your enemies?
The Fleet is a thrilling interactive science-fiction novel where your choices determine how the story proceeds. The game is entirely text-based--without graphics or sound effects--but powered by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.
For example, in deep space, you'll encounter an enemy base, where alien military scientists are building weaponized AI drone ships, in violation of intergalactic treaties. But the aliens are stationed there with workers and their families; if you attack civilians unilaterally, it will jeopardize your reputation with the nascent Intergalactic Alliance. What will you do?
A) Destroy the entire production facility, killing alien civilians in the process.
B) Destroy the shipyard full of drones, allowing the enemy to rebuild the facility.
C) Just defend your own civilians from incoming drones.
The choice is yours. Will you return home as a military dictator, a prisoner of war, or the president of a puppet state? Will you even recognize home when you get there?
