About this game

Outfly, outshoot, and outwit your enemies as an outlaw cyborg on the run! You're a cyborg copy of Ypsilanti Rowe, the interstellar outlaw, whose enemies (and exes) are gunning for you. Can you upgrade your brain and pull one last heist?

"I, Cyborg" is a 300,000-word interactive science-fiction novel by Tracy Canfield. It's entirely text-based, without graphics or sound effects, and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

Being a cyborg copy of the famous outlaw Ypsilanti Rowe comes with plenty of advantages. But when your cybernetic brain begins to fail only a rare and obsolete part can make your systems function again. Journey across the galaxy as you hunt down the missing piece. Along the way you'll shoot down enemy ships, or jam their sensors so they never know you're there; seduce Ypsilanti's old flames—or just stay out of their gunsights; dogfight beneath high-gravity stormclouds and race pirates through a mined-out asteroid's rocky tunnels.

When Ypsilanti turns up in the original flesh, will the two of you make the perfect team? Or is there only room in this galaxy for one of you?

• Play as male or female; gay, straight, bisexual, or asexual.
• Boost your skills with cybernetic upgrades: you're a cyborg!
• Ambush a weapons shipment above a gas giant's rings.
• Smuggle alien pets, penetrate the walls of a comet prison, and befriend an intelligent starship.
• Work for the local crime lords, set them at each others' throats, or rat them out to the Intersolar Police.
• Infiltrate the halls of power and steal top-secret data with a touch of your augmented fingertips.
• Choose to favor your human instincts, your custom software, or a balance between the two.

Incredibly well written, quirky, funny, and exciting. Surprisingly diverse choice trees, and algorithms that change certain events to require a different strategy depending on your character's personality or skillset. Deeply impressed with the planning ability of the writer. Found myself replaying over and over just to try the different romantic options because they were so interesting.

Christian Vedsø, you shouldn't review a game you have not actually played. Because this game is ABSOLUTELY one of the BEST! Anyone remotely interested in choose your own adventure games should play this one. Great storytelling, entertaining, and versatile. Really lets you feel in control of your own story. It does seem difficult, especially at the beginning, but it's worth the payoff & that just ups its replay value in my opinion. I honestly have zero complaints, which is rare. I need a sequel!

It's ok but some pages felt a little off and I lost track of what was happening not sure if this was continuity errors or if it was the sentence structure/paragraphing. Overall I felt like nothing was really happening it felt like I was just doing a stat check and if I was successful I'd get more money all the while my mc would be panicking over the part that it needs. I didn't love the game but I didn't hate it either.
