About this game

Impersonate your identical twin as the Swashbuckler, masked champion of justice! You have two weeks to rescue the REAL Swashbuckler and marry the mayor before superpowered criminals take over the city.

The Hero Unmasked is a 300,000 word interactive novel by Christopher Huang. It's entirely text-based, without graphics or sound effects, and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

As our story begins, you have everything you've ever wanted. Your TV news show is the highest rated in the city, and you're engaged to the mayor, with two weeks until the wedding. But when superpowered criminals kidnap the Swashbuckler, you realize the awful truth: the person in the ransom video is your identical twin, and everyone thinks it's you!

Now, you must draw the Swashbuckler's laser sword and wear the Swashbuckler's mask to bring down three of the city's most wanted super criminals before time runs out.

How is this going to work? Can you keep up the charade? Do you want to? When you meet the Swashbuckler's sweetheart, will you remain faithful? To whom?!

Who is really behind the mask?

• Disarm a bomb and save the city's finest from destruction

The concept and story is really fun! It's pretty well written too. Unfortunately I agree with other reviewers that it was way too short. I felt like I skipped a huge chunk of story near the end until I realized it just sort of seemed to skip a significant amount of potential plot and story. The plot itself was also quite predictable, though I still found it enjoyable. I really don't think a story this short was worth $6 but oh well.

Very interesting setting for the story but it rushes quite fast forward. I would have liked to learn more of the lore and situations. Also the fights could have had more content or twists. Final fight was more such. Still pretty good and I think if there ever will be a sequel it would be very interesting to see how it would continue.

It was actually pretty good! I mean it felt a tad bit rushed but not by to much. It has a good plot and the characters are all well put together (as well as the story). It was also a bit short too, but not by to much. Overall it was a pretty good story! 9/10
