* I am really enjoying "Choice of the Vampire", a text game by ChoiceOfGames.com
-I love that text-based games are still being made. This game not only harkens back to the Choose Your Own Adventure books, but it tells a really compelling story. I have downloaded the ChoiceScript software from their website and think I may craft my own games. 5 Stars all the way.
