About this game

Can a wanna-be hero like you rescue the city of Kendrickstone, held hostage by an evil wizard and his troop of black-clad soldiers? Face down fierce foes with spell, sword, or silver tongue. Outwit cunning rivals, cement your fledgling reputation, and maybe, just maybe, make enough money to pay your rent!

“The Hero of Kendrickstone” is an epic 240,000-word interactive fantasy 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.

Step into the shoes of a fledgling adventurer in a world full of magic and mystery! Master physical combat, magic, stealth, or diplomacy. Choose to befriend–or betray–sorcerers and knights, bandits and baronesses.

Will you spend the last of your silver on a bed for the night, or potions for your next adventure? Will you spend your evenings studying ancient secrets, or prize-fighting for extra coin? Will you seek a mentor to help hone your skills, or strike out on your own? Will you prove to be a paragon of compassion, or a callous mercenary? Will you die forgotten and un-mourned, or will you become the Hero of Kendrickstone?

I actually purchased this book. This is an excellent story with incredibly well done stats. You are able to play this game four different ways and the story lends itself well to replayability. This is one of the best choice games out there. I have played as a bard, warrior, and a mage. This also has a rogue archetype as well. Well written, good stats, excellent world building, relatable characters, awesome dialogue and imagery as well. This one I highly recommend.

Not worth the price. There is little to no pacing, the writing and characters are shallow, your choices have barely any affect on the actual story and the game is frankly way too short. All these things could be forgiven at a lower price point but as it stands it's just not worth it.

Pretty good. Others mentioned it is short, which I agree, BUT I feel the amount of options and replayability make up for it.
