StoryFix Media Hopes To Modernize Choose Your Own Adventures With Their First Game The Pulse

It’s a fantastic time to be a gamer. Now, more than ever, gamers of all types can find exactly the type of experience you’re looking for. And if you can’t find it? Well, maybe you can go ahead and create that very experience you were hoping to find. Such is the case for the folks over at StoryFix Media.

Their first game, The Pulse, is set to hit Google Play later this month, and from the looks of the trailer, it looks to be an interesting text-based adventure. Of course, my mind goes to old-school text-based classics like Zork, but given the more narrative structure, I also get a hint of Telltale Games, who really pioneered the story-driven format with games like The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us.

I asked StoryFix Media co-founder Christopher Webster what their inspiration was for the game, and here’s what he had to say:

“We were inspired to modernize the choose your own adventure medium using technology available today. We wanted to implicate people in the story rather than just letting them be passive. Playing The Pulse is so much more than making binary choices like in the old days. While you play, the game tracks all kinds of things like how trustworthy you are, how impatient, and how much time you want to invest getting to know the characters. It really feels like the future of storytelling in that way.”

As a fan of online novel services like Wattpad, this certainly seems right up my alley, but can it live up to the promise of “next level of interactivity”? Only time will tell, but based on the trailer (above) and the playlist of music they’ve released online (below), it’s clear they’re working hard to create a very specific experience.

Christopher Webster will be on this Friday’s Los Fanboys with us to talk film and TV and also get a bit more in-depth about his upcoming interactive sci-fi story.

What do you think of this new game? Is this the kind of interactivity you’re hoping to get with mobile experiences these days? Let us know down below!
