Bought it yesterday, played 10+ playthroughs in a day.
Choice of Robots is the interactive story of a twenty-four year old graduate in the Ph.D. program for Computer Science at Stanford in Palo Alto, California, who wakes up after a vivid dream about a robot they created on the day that they plan to create said robot. The year is 2019, and new technology abounds, from flying cars, to the almost-common use of 3D printers, and robots becoming more and more commonplace. The Player Character hopes to put together a robot with a fully functional AI in the hopes of earning their degree.
The main idea of the game is the struggle between you, you robot, humanity, love, fame, wealth and war (or no war at all if you managed to pull it off). The story unfold itself pretty well so just try the demo below if you are into text games.
