About this game

Chosen by the gods, you must battle savage monsters, corrupt priests, and mad philosophers to save reality from the dark god of destruction!

"Pon Para and the Great Southern Labyrinth" is an interactive Bronze Age fantasy novel by Kyle Marquis, the first game in the Pon Para trilogy, where your choices control the story. It’s entirely text-based--430,000 words, without graphics or sound effects--and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

Years ago, in the Behemoth War, the forces of evil tried to destroy the world with Raun, the dark axe of destruction. Your parents united with King Hyras to win the Behemoth War and save the kingdom, becoming legendary heroes.

You have been raised far from the intrigues and corruption of the great cities–and from the plots of the gods. But after twenty years of peace, the pirate king Lord Vankred has found Raun. Under the threat of war, the gods grant you their powers. You must find the mad King Hyras and defeat Vankred before he can assassinate the King and shatter the Three Nations.

But the gods have their own plans for you, and so does the secret master of the Great Southern Labyrinth.

• Play as male, female, or non-binary; gay, straight, bi, or ace.
• Defeat enemies with sword and spell, or make allies with diplomacy, deception, and the miracles of your god.
• Train your companions in alchemy, infiltration, diplomacy, or the arts of war
• Explore haunted forests, corrupt cities, and jungles littered with the remains of a fallen civilization.
• Find friendship, romance, or rivalry with an immortal nymph, a desert thief, or an ambitious monarch.
• Unlock secret magic techniques forgotten for centuries.
• Survive the wrath of the Emissary Beasts to open the labyrinth’s final door.

The labyrinth holds the key to untold mysteries. Once you know the truth, whose side will you take?

Honestly this is to me one of the better choice of games out there, the world building for a choice game is phenomenal, and I really enjoy the codex as a reference to go always go back to as the story grows. It really allows you to immerse yourself in the world. The quests and battles are very engaging and add to the story greatly, and the diverse cast of characters all with their own motivations and complex morals make for a great interactive read. Definitely recommend this one.

While more expensive than some other choice games: the length, the quality of writing, and the immersive world-building makes this one of the most valuable games I have ever had the pleasure of reading. The characters are all unique and the dialogue is just perfect. The stats work exceptionally well and this game has the best replayability I have ever seen in a choice game. I can't recommend this story enough: it truly is a work of art and this story now has a sequel too. Highly recommend!

Interesting. Lot of info thrown at you very early on. In a longer novel youd have time to see that explained and see questions answered, but you dont really see that here. otherwise, a very interesting idea with some good aspects. A little too easy to game the stats. Within a few chapters my character was a great warrior, archer, hunter, scholar, etc. I literally could not fail.
