In video games tagged as "Choose Your Own Adventure," players are presented with narrative-driven gameplay where they have agency over the story's progression. The choices made by players can alter the events, impact character relationships, and ultimately lead to different outcomes. This allows for multiple branching paths and varied experiences within a single game.

Key features of Choose Your Own Adventure games include:

  • Interactive Storytelling These games prioritize narrative and player choice, often featuring extensive dialogue options or decision points that significantly influence the course of events.
  • Multiple Endings Unlike linear narratives with fixed conclusions, Choose Your Own Adventure games offer various possible outcomes based on players' decisions. Different choices may result in unique endings, encouraging replayability.
  • Persistent Consequences Choices made early in the game can have lasting effects on subsequent events, characters' attitudes towards you, or even alter entire plotlines. This adds depth and complexity to each playthrough.

Examples of popular Choose Your Own Adventure-style games include:

  • Life is Strange series Developed by Dontnod Entertainment, these episodic adventure games put players in the shoes of characters with time-manipulation abilities. Decisions made by players during pivotal moments affect relationships, character dynamics, and ripple effects that alter the narrative's trajectory.
  • Telltale Games' The Walking Dead This episodic series adapted from the popular comic book franchise showcases an emotionally driven story where player options affect relationships and survival. Each decision can lead to drastic consequences for both the main character and other fellow survivors within a world infested by zombies.
  • The Witcher series Developed by CD Projekt Red, these RPGs allow players to make decisions that significantly impact how events unfold throughout Geralt's journeys. Players shape their personal storyline through moral choices regarding alliances, romance options, and political involvement.
