Folks, I have a confession to make: I’ve been slacking a little. Choice of Games has been releasing RPG / choose-your-own-adventure hybrids for months, and yet I’ve been continuously neglecting to post about them. Well, that streak of fail ends today with Yeti’s Parole Officer, written by KT Bryski!
The Yeti, Loch Ness Monster, Chupacabra, and Mothman are aliens, sentenced to prison on Earth by the Pan-Galactic Prisons Bureau. As the Yeti’s parole officer, you must defend the galaxy from these convicts, unravel their criminal conspiracy, and bring them to justice!
As an officer of pan-galactic law, you’ll travel around the world to wipe all memory of alien activity on Earth, battling extaterrestrial smugglers and rival PGPB agents alike to save the world from nefarious cryptids.
Will you play as male or female? Gay or straight? Will you throw the book at the alien scofflaws messing with your planet, or will you betray your allies for personal gain? The choice is yours!
So basically, it’s a reinterpretation of the plot of Men in Black in game form. You’ll have stats at your disposal such as cash, clearance level, resolve, persuasion, combat skill, stealth, and observation, with the game also tracking your reputation on justice-versus-mercy and rule-bender-versus-by-the-book continua.
