About this game

By the power of your blood, you and your ghosts will take over your crime family!

"Blood Money" is a 290,000-word interactive novel by Hannah Powell-Smith. It's entirely text-based, without graphics or sound effects, and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

When your cousin murders the city's most notorious crime boss--your mother--a power struggle erupts across the criminal underworld. As your sisters Octavia and Fuschia vie for control, you alone in the family possess the blood magician's power to summon and command ghosts. They hunger for your blood; if it's blood they want, then blood they'll have.

Will you take over the family business? Remain loyal, go it alone, or defect to a rival gang?

• Play as male, female, or non-binary; gay, straight, bi, or ace.
• Embrace your unearthly gifts and build connections with the dead, or banish ghosts to the underworld to protect the living
• Look for love, or manipulate your friends and allies; Betray those who trust you, or maintain family loyalty no matter the cost
• Fight a gang war for your family, defect to your rivals, or reject a life of crime
• Negotiate volatile family relations: resolve squabbles, fall in line as a loyal lieutenant, or sharpen your knife for backstabbing
• Influence citywide politics: exploit the Mayor’s office for your own ends, or use your connections for a greater cause

What will you sacrifice for freedom, and who will you sacrifice for power?

I like the characters and the whole blood magic setup is really cool. I wish it would be explored a bit more, but the setting is very unique and fascinating. I'd like to explore the stigma behind blood magic a bit more as well. My biggest criticism is the ending, which feels very sudden. I didn't think it was properly foreshadowed, and it was over way too quickly.

So if I could give this a 4.5 star rating, that's what I would give it. Anyways, I thought this game was great. I loved the characters, setting, and plot. I liked the challenges brought up from taking out the rivals, electing someone for mayor, etc. The only problem, which I see many people didn't like either, is that the ending feels a little rushed. It's good at the end, don't get me wrong, but the 2nd to last chapter was very chaotic and came out of nowhere. Other than that, great game 8½/10.

Felt very railroaded, and the few important choices I got to make were ruined by seemingly random stat barriers, failing checks that should rely on one stat but apparently tie to another. The plot seems very loosely built, and changes at the whim of the author. They seem to expect you to betray the family, if you do not the story treats it as if you should be. The premise is great and there is a lot of potential in the plot, but it feels like I only enjoyed the worldbuilding, not the game.
