About this game

Fight monsters and free the ancient city with your enchanted talking sword!

You’re a common orphan scraping a living on the streets of Targas Adur—a city older than memory, full of dark corners and darker magics, ruled by a merciless Sorcerer King, Demorgon. While exploring one of those dark corners, you stumble upon...the sword, an ancient weapon of power. And it can talk, in a voice only you can hear.

"Sword of the Slayer" is 185,000-word interactive fantasy novel by S. Andrew Swann, 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.

Dark creatures do as Demorgon bids, and his royal guard keeps order with an iron fist. All gods and temples are suppressed except for his own Dark Tabernacle. But with the re-emergence of the sword, Demorgon’s power may be waning. Evil monsters invade the city, and sections of Targas Adur have fallen to their influence. It’s up to you to slay them.

You must train yourself in sword-fighting to protect the ones you love, as you battle the demons of Targas Adur, including the dread White Wyrm. Thrust into the role of monster-slayer, you find yourself the focus of decadent nobles who want to return to power, devoted monks who want to see the gods return to the city, and—most troubling—you now have the attention of the Sorcerer King himself.

Will you become a foe of the monsters, a threat to Sorcerer King’s regime, or a hope for the forces trying to bring down his rule? Or will you give yourself over to the sword, losing control of your mind and body?

• Play as male, female, or non-binary; gay, straight, bi, or asexual
• Rise from the gutter to the highest level of power
• Support the gods, the nobles, or a rival sorcerer for the rule of the ancient city
• Bring back the gods or fight the Great White Wyrm when you enter the Dark Tabernacle
• Make allies in your quest to free the city
• Protect your childhood friend, and your swordsman trainer from capture and death
• Face monsters of all sorts, up to the Sorcerer King himself
• Save your place before a chapter and you can return to that point after the story’s end and try a different set of choices

An enchanted sword. An ancient evil. A hero waits.

This game was fun in the first few chapters because it was hitting all the fantasy tropes but then it just never develops beyond that. You can guess whats going to happen next most of the time, making the right choice for your stats was never a challenge, and all the characters are some of the flattest Ive seen in one of these games with no development that isnt forced. 2 stars cause i did finish it having a decent time but theres no replay value and not worth full price in my opinion.

Wow! I am on a roll! 2 reviews back to back! This one is truly epic!! I love how you can save as you go! If you wish to replay any chapter you don't have to wait until the whole story is complete! The action, the plot, the storyline is all A+++! The only thing I would've liked to see more of, of course is romance. These kinds of stories don't seem to have to much of that in them. Other than that highly recommend this one!

I enjoyed the story very much, and there were quite a bit paths to take. Definitely worth the price! I have one thing that I kinda wished for by the end: in the Thrall Ending, I kinda wished they'd just share, or that there could've been a romance option- I actually liked them! I hope I just didn't end up missing it...
