About this game

Start practicing your evil laugh! As the world's greatest criminal mastermind, choose a lair, hire a minion, and steal the world's largest ball of aluminum foil! (Or, destroy the world. FINE.)

"Diabolical" is a 130,000-word interactive novel by Nick Aires, where 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.

Famous, feared, or filthy rich—why not all three? You've got the money and the motives to build an evil empire worthy of the most ruthless villain the world has ever seen. Crush the good guys and terrorize the populace! Stamp a big red "FAIL" on your enemies' foreheads! Plunder your way to world domination – or sit back and pet your kitty while your henchmen do it for you.

Will you be a high-tech daredevil, a ruthless military soldier, or an apparition terrifying to behold? What calling card will you leave at the scene of your crimes? Whatever your choices, the results will be diabolical.

• Play a villainous story of scheming, grandstanding, and laughing evilly.
• Interview and hire the best possible (or best available) minion.
• Decide when to use trickery, when to use force, and when to hide behind henchmen.
• Choose the ultimate, guaranteed-to-be-infamous nickname.
• Play as male or female, with straight, gay, and bisexual romance options.
• Destroy the world!

I love this! I love the sarcastic tone, the news anchors, all the characters and options. I love that you can be whatever kind of villain you want, you can even be a good guy. There are so many different choices and directions and interactions. Also thanks for not making the final battle skill related options confusing. This was so good! I'm gonna go play it again.

Love the game, it was great. However I wish I could've interact with the characters a bit more, because I found myself drawn to them alot. Disappointing, oh. And the ending was great, it really builds up to a sequel! Well, atleast the ending I got does. Perhaps you could work on a sequel... I would totally play it! If you were to do that, then please try to add more content, even if it costs more money to buy the novel. And I highly recommend Diabolical!

I loved Diabolical! Sure, there's a few spelling and grammatical errors here and there, and the plot could make a little more sense. But it more than makes up for that in the actual story itself! To say it was very immersive would be an understatement, and the character development was phenomenal. Even my character (Sir CrayZeePants) went from a ruthless killer to (almost) world savior! I just wish there was a sequel, because (SPOILER) the ending I got perfectly sets up one!
