About this game

For generations, your family has kept China safe from chaos demons. Now you must uphold that duty while you're at university--just don't tell your roommates!

"First Year Demons" is an interactive fantasy novel by Rebecca Slitt, author of "Psy High." Your choices control the story. It's two games in one: a 30,000-word educational game, and a 43,000-word version of the same story that's just for fun. Both games are entirely text-based--without graphics or sound effects--and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

As the youngest member of a family with a secret and ancient duty to keep China safe from demons, you must balance your relatives' traditional values and expectations with the challenges of your first year at college and your secret study of potions, sword, and spells.

Between dorm­room parties and chemistry study sessions, you'll experience battle and betrayal. You'll learn just how important it is to stay close to your family--your life may depend on it! You'll see how China is changing: maybe it's better to offer your ancestors a smartphone than to slay a demon in their memory. And above all, you must not let your friends know why you really sneak out of your dorm so late at night! Demons are all around you, and you never know what might be hiding behind a friendly face.

• Battle chaos demons
• Play as male or female, gay, straight or bi
­• Hit the books, or go out and party!
­• Stay close to your family ­ or turn against them and be cast out
• Specialize in swords, magic, or potions

The adapted version has more description and interactions and the stats actually matter. Lets just say the original isnt as good as the adapted version. The stats definitely matter in this game, consistency is important. This game is very short and sometimes you make a choice and get forced down a different path anyways. So to some degree this game railroads you down a specific path. The plot is decent but the game itself suffers from being very linear. Not as good as other choice games.

I bought this hoping I could name my character, I can't. I wasted my money. Put it in the description that you can't
