Well, technically it’s an interactive fiction gamebook. But either way it releases on Thursday the 25th on iOS, Google Play and the Amazon App marketplace. Or whatever they call it.

It is called Nuclear Powered Toaster, and is being put out by Hosted Games. Don’t know price for sure, but hopefully it will be about $2.99.

I was not aware of that, so thanks for letting me know! Only some of their releases get a Steam debut, so I am surprised and happy at the prospect.

Congrats! :) Looks interesting. How long would you say it'll take to go through?

Average playthrough is a little over 30,000 words, so maybe an hour or an hour and a half? Actual word count is 160,000 though; it’s built for replays. Especially with two different lead characters.

Yeah, of course. I'll give it a shot when possible. :)

Thanks, man! Hopefully it’s good, but honestly it was a big deal just to finish it. I’ve been trying to write this story one way to the other since back when the Netrunners still saw me as TVRealm scum.

Oh, and confirmed release price in America is $1.99 (goes up to $2.99 a week after it comes out). In foreign countries the specific amount may change but it will still be on sale for roughly 33% in the first week.

Wow, that's a long time...

Yep. Created it in 2005 with another TVRealmer who then moved on.

13 years later, it must really be a delight that your effort is paying off. :)

It is! However, if anyone buys it on Google though, I could use a few good reviews. I mentioned this had preset protagonists in the description, but some people are still torching it in the reviews because they can’t rename characters or anything.

What the hell, not getting to rename characters is a gripe now?

It’s a big thing in CYOA/IF stuff these days. If you can’t name and customize your main character they say you’re railroading things.

Looks like the dumbing down of gamers and gamer culture has influenced even this niche.

People just get stuck in a rut. A few of the authors were talking about it on the CoG forum and we just realized that anything different is automatically bad with a small group of readers. The guy doing a story where you play as a cow is definitely worried, as is the one adapting Oedipus Rex as a choice game.

Haha, I'll have to read people complaining about not being able to customise a cow.

Nice review from Steam user hustlertwo Humor and characters are pretty good. I especially like the achievements! It was a great price for the length and replayability, too.

Yes, that was certainly a wonderful and spontaneous review! I am grateful to the handsome stranger who left it for their kind words.

It was me. I got tired of seeing no reviews there and I also wanted to not have so many achievements which no one had gotten. So I bought my own game.

Oh, but I should point out that my review score has rebounded to 4.0 on Google with 49 reviews. I have a hunch my old friend Vlado may have helped that a bit, I saw one on there with a Russian username.

    Up at 3am to claim my early start money at work. And I’m staying in my truck for the first time ever tonight because I’ll run out of hours just before I get home. So wages, plus early start plus night out means I’m getting £200 for today.
