About this game

Choose your career in a post-Climate Change future. Will you follow in your parents’ footsteps and run the city’s shark farm, or will you break the mold?

The Floating City is a 130,000 word climate fiction novel by Felicity Banks, where your choices control the story. It’s entirely text-based—without graphics or sound effects—and powered by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

You can explore the drowned city of Old Sydney, the secrets of the underground New Sydney, and travel around your own floating city. The pressure is on to hone your skills and choose your future job, but there is hidden danger far below the surface of the sea. Your friend Kassandra is risking her own life to figure out why the sharks are afraid, and you are the only person she listens to. Will you risk her life to try to save others, or will you beg her to give up her dreams?

•Play as male, female, or non-binary; gay, straight, or asexual and/or aromantic.
•Develop a romance with a male or female friend, or neither.
•Trade with other cities, and make useful connections.
•Build your reputation in order to enhance your career prospects.
•Learn more about how sharks behave, and solve the mystery of their unusual behavior.
•Save thousands of lives—or abandon them to increase your own profits.

The future is in your hands.

I actually purchased this book.The worldbuilding in this was really good. Giant floating cities are an interesting premise. The stats at times were difficult: it was hard to know which stat related to what choice. I just wish I could have talked my friend out of using Tek that is dangerous. The Alive terrorist group plotline was not explored as much as I would have liked. I was not a huge fan of the ending. It's a decent read but I would have preferred more variation in the endings.

One of the very few Choice games where I haven't felt the need to min/max my character. The choices, even when they didn't lead to the outcome I wanted them to, all felt fulfilling and interesting enough so that I didn't restart a hundred times trying to get the perfect run. I hope the author explores the setting more in a future game because it was an interesting and fresh premise.

Started strong, felt rushed at the end. Decent story, interesting PC, wish it had more depth.
