About this game

Something is rotten in City Hall—can you uncover it a Pulitzer? When the mayor unexpectedly resigns, it's up to you, the rookie reporter on the City Desk to find out the real story and get it into print. Right away you smell a rat. As you track down sources and information, your reporter's instincts, brains, heart, or impeccable writing will lead you to the truth.

"The Daily Blackmail" is a 33,000 word interactive fantasy novella by Mary Duffy, 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.

In The Daily Blackmail, you'll get all the news that is (and isn't!) fit to print.

• Play as male, female, or non-binary.
• Cross paths with an evil editor, a mobster, and even scarier: the publisher.
• Lie, cheat, and steal to get your front page story.
• Press your colleagues, political cronies, and underworld sources for information.
• Reach for every reporter's dream—a Pulitzer Prize.

This story had so much unmet potential. I could see it being a really interesting story, but it was too short for it to have any substance. You know very little of the corruption that you are desperately investigating. You don't even know the characters well enough to feel anything for them. I wanted to like this, but it's just disappointing. It puts shame in free content, that's for sure.

This game is possibly the worst out of all the other choice of games I've played. I can endure numerous bugs and mistakes, but the story ends in the most abrupt way imaginable and half of the achievement page comes is made up of a single choice selection where you choose from 20 or so choices which food do you want to eat during a certain meeting. This is quite literally half a scam. I would advise strongly future buyer to NOT buy this game.
