Book 1 of the Midnight Legion

You are an android agent who has been activated after hundreds of years of stasis. Your scheduled mission is still centuries in the future, but your underground base has been invaded and you are needed to defend it.

Unfortunately, it will take time for your memories to return. As you fight, trick or sneak your way up from the lower levels to the surface and your memories begin filtering back, you realize that your mission is not what you thought it was—and you may not be who you think you are.

Choose your strategy wisely, because every choice you make now will lead to different options later. The world has changed since you were put to sleep, and you will need to decide whether you are still willing to follow your ancient orders or whether you are ready to set a new future in motion.

The What Did You Play Last Week Podcast Thing: “It’s just an incredible story, an incredible journey that’s going to be different every time. It’s just so much fun.”

Your Turn Go!: “You…awaken devoid of your memories in an unfamiliar, post-apocalyptic environment. The action begins immediately as you struggle to escape, fight off dangerous foes, search for helpful items, and solve puzzles to complete your mission.”

Lloyd of Gamebooks: “[M]emories are gradually given to you, allowing for the story and your background to unfold as you read. This is a great strength of the book, where every few sections gives you a new insight into the mystery around you.”

Gamebook News: “A colour, illustrated gamebook…, this series uses a highly advanced game system, offering a deeper level of character generation than a standard CYOA gamebook – featuring combat, puzzles, diplomacy, stealth and role-playing elements.”

Nerdy But Flirty: “First, you build your character, RPG style. Then, you wake up and start making decisions Choose Your Own Adventure style, with each choice leading you somewhere different in the book and affecting the story. There are puzzles, combat, diplomacy, and role playing elements in this game, and the cool part is you can choose how to solve your problems – either through solving puzzles or by recovering your memories for clues. Anyone who likes books or yearns for those old Choose Your Own Adventure stories will foam at the mouth over this game.”  Called one of “The Best Games for Solo Players from Gen Con 2016.”
