About this game

Everyone thinks you saved the world three years ago. It was all a lie. The truth is, the "dark lord" you and your friends supposedly slew never existed; you used magical illusions to fake a prophecy. But now, as you relax into a life of fame and luxury, the omens from your false prophecy are happening again, and this time, you had nothing to do with it.

"Heroes of Myth" is a 560,000-word interactive novel by Abigail C. Trevor, 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.

Naturally, everyone expects you to save the world again, but you're just an illusionist, and your friends have scattered to the winds. Will you become the hero all the songs say you are, or find new ways to fool them all again? How far will you go to protect your friends' secrets--or are there stronger alliances to be made by betraying their trust?

This is the trouble with pretending you're a hero: occasionally you have to become one. Craft clever illusions, charm suspicious royals, and face shadowy demons from beyond your realm. In the end, is the story you told worth more to you, or to the legions of people who believed it?

• Play as male, female, or non-binary; gay, straight or bisexual; monogamous or poly; asexual, and/or aromantic
• Intercept messages, stage scandals, and guide your preferred ruler to the throne
• Romance a prince, a bard, a long-lost friend, a false prophet, or a visitor from realms beyond
• Defend castles, villages, and your own mind from demonic assault
• Help your friends protect their positions, or sacrifice them in the name of the truth
• Triumph in a tournament of the greatest mages from across the land
• Slay a centuries-old monster—or swear yourself to his cause

Are you a hero, a liar, or both?

I've played almost all the cog games, and this is one of the best yet. Great writing, lots of choice, and quite long. My only critique is that I wish there was more opportunities to interact with the other characters. The interactions that are there are very good and unique, but you can only interact with one character during each story lull so you wind up full committing to one companion per playthrough and ignoring all the other companions, which is a shame because all of them are fantastic.

I thoroughly enjoyed my first playthrough, and I can't wait to play it again and again. It's a high-stakes story with gut-wrenching choices, but also a surprisingly optimistic tone and a well-balanced level of difficulty in terms of its character trait system. The consequences of choices make sense. This is undoubtedly my new favorite from this publisher. It reminds me of Choice of Magics and Choice of Robots, if you're looking for other excellent interactive novels to read.

great story and choices I'd definitely suggest giving it a read however I had multiple problems with the interactions on my device. when scrolling some choices would automatically be chosen even without selecting next. same for just tapping a choice. only other thing I would really suggest is perhaps a way to save or reload checkpoint. wanted/ had to restart multiple times to get the first blind playground of what I wanted. could just be my device but definitely an improvement to look into.
