About this game

Seize the throne in the age of King Arthur! Lead an army of Britons against the darkest of enemies in this epic interactive medieval fantasy novel.

"Pendragon Rising" is a thrilling 112,000-word interactive novel by Ian Thomas, 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.

As the bastard offspring of the aging ruler Pendragon, you’ll fight to save Britain from a demon-tainted enemy and claim the crown you deserve. Command an army as Arthur, brave son of Uther, or Arta, fearless daughter of Utta.

Charge heroically to the front of battle, or use tricks to defeat your foes. Dally with your childhood companion, or seek romance elsewhere. Hold the line with your closest friends against foreign invaders and their sinister magics. Find friendship, forge alliances, uncover plots, and triumph over creatures of nightmare to win a future for your people and your kingdom.

Will you be mercenary or merciful? Seductive or solitary? Most importantly, can you lead your allies to drive back the darkness, and seize your place as Pendragon of Britain?

Loved it! Very well written, I got chills at the end. This isn't a romance centered game, so if that's your favorite style this might not be the story for you. The beginning lines where phenomenal and the action and intensity never lulled throughout the whole of the book. Your choices mattered, and the skills you chose changed the outcomes. 10 outta 10 bout to play it again

Easily one of the best. The stat dynamic is more complex and ever evolving, and dialogue options arent based purely upon a stat check. You have to use actual logic at times instead if just playing to your stats. Story is fantastic, and the setting is great. Also, there are multiple endings based upon your choices. You arent pigeon-holed early.

First of all, for its length, the game is supremely expensive - I've completed 3 playthroughs in the span of 2 HOURS. For 5+ dollars, I expect a pretty sizeable story, especially from this publisher! The story feels extremely narrow - your options railroading you. Despite playing 3 different characters, I encountered the same general outcomes. The romance is nearly nonexistent - in one case seemingly requiring sex.
