About this game

Command a royal warship and destroy your enemies at sea! As a veteran navy captain in the world of Choice of Broadsides, you’ll fend off (smugglers, slavers, and) foes of the crown to seize your place in history.

"HMS Foraker" is an 85,000 word interactive novel by Paul Wang, 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.

It’s 1813, and you’re a key sailor in the naval war between Columbia and Albion, where aggression is rewarded and cowardice can get you killed. If you seize enough treasure, you could be set for life – but hesitate against the enemy and you could end up facing the firing squad.

Board enemy ships and force them to surrender, or use your connections to stay out of the fray. Will you steer your crew to glory, or go down in infamous defeat? What mercy will you show your prisoners? Can you control your composure while fighting a war? Revenge yourself on old rivals and reward your allies for their devotion. And whatever you do...

Don’t give up the ship!

• Serve the queen or the king, with an all-male or all-female crew.
• Captain the powerful warship HMS Foraker.
• Train your crew for combat, with kindness or cruelty.
• Parley with smugglers, slavers, and other unsavoury characters for tactical advantage or personal gain.
• Inspire devotion from your crew, or sway your superiors back home.
• Confront storms, accidents, and other maritime disasters.
• Master the balance between bravery and cowardice, cunning and folly.
• Win glory, treasure, promotion, a knighthood, or even a noble title.

The original "Choice of Broadsides" was one of my favorite text-based adventures for Android years ago, and this one didn't disappoint either. I definitely got the sense that my choices mattered, and that they really impacted the storyline. My character died in a very unglorious fashion the first time though, so I'll be needing to play again.

Not as good as the first one, mainly because its so much shorter and only focuses on one key event, but still really enjoyable! The length does not really justify a 3.99+ price tag just to remove ads and replay it without a wait though. If anything, it feels like the prices should be switched for broadsides and foraker.

I was absolutely blown away yet again! I loved the first Choice of Broadsides and played it a million times, and this game is right up there with the original on my favorites out of your games. It was a really nicely done touch that it still somewhat followed the story of the original. Keep doing what you're doing! I'm loving the Choice of Broadsides series!
