What if you could live your life over again?<br><br>In this text-based interactive fiction, you choose what happens next. It's in the style of pick-a-path gamebooks, but with over a thousand multiple-choice questions, it's much longer and deeper than traditional gamebooks. Alter Ego starts at birth and ends at death, including two substantially different versions, depending on whether you choose to be male or female. <br><br>Will you grow up to be confident and happy? Will you fight with bullies, or befriend them? Will you find a date to the senior prom? Will you marry and have kids, or start your own business and become a millionaire? The choice is yours.<br><br>This game will change your life.<br><br>(Alter Ego was originally published in 1986 for the Commodore 64, MS-DOS, Apple II, and Macintosh. The current edition of the Alter Ego game is a production of Choose Multiple LLC. This edition includes an updated interface and fixes bugs in the original version of the game, but the content of the game hasn't changed from the original 1986 version of the game.)

I’ve had this game on my devices since around 2011 and find myself still coming back to it seven years later, so it feels criminal to not leave a review. Basically, it’s a fantastic life sim with a *lot* of replayability, thanks to its RPG-like stats system and its huge branching stories. It’s almost entirely text-based, which is no problem at all since it’s so well written. The comedy scenes are hilariously cheesy (this is a port of a 1986 game, after all!), and it successfully builds on stories of relatable growing pains to deliver compelling scenarios for your alter ego to navigate. The childhood sections of the game feels bittersweet and nostalgic every time I go through them, and the older adult/elder sections hit hard and make me feel more empathy for real-life folks in their twilight years. Your character will face emotional yet realistic tribulations, like mental health crises and affairs and near-death experiences (or maybe just a horrible, crushing premature death). I could gush for ages about the unexpected engagement and entertainment this text-based adventure has given me all these years. I seriously recommend Alter Ego to anyone who likes the idea of everything I’ve talked about and thinks it sounds even slightly fun. I guarantee you it’s even better than that once you dip below the surface. It is worth every penny you’ll spend on it.

Ok... I barely write reviews for apps because I feel like it is a waste of time. But this app is exceptional and though it is five dollars, it is worth the money. The gameplay is smooth and unlike much other apps, actually makes sense. Whatever you say or do will effect all your stats, changing everything about your “alter ego” you play as, including physical and emotional traits. Everything is factored in to make it a unique experience every time you play. This app, in my opinion actually is the best thing I have on my phone. And that means a lot because I have 13 whole pages of apps and games on my phone. Now I’m going to get to one piece of advice. Don’t get this for someone young, even if they are 12 unless they are mature and you think they can handle kinda... sexually explicit for someone normal that age.

I normally don’t write reviews but when I saw this only had 53 I knew had to write something. This game is soo much fun. You actually make choices that affect your character unlike in other games that claim to do the same. This game deserves so much more recognition. It would be awesome if it were updated a bit if you could be born into a single parent home or be born a gay character. But I realize that this is a script game and would require so much work. However, do know that many people would buy it if you were to do so. The alter ego forms where they suggest updates or changes have many people on them so I do believe you could make money if you did the new scripts for the changes you could make.

Love this game. It's hard to find a text based game and still get involved with it, but you managed to do it!! The only thing I want, and REALLY REALLY NEED is the choice of homosexually :) I understand that you want to keep it similar to the 1980 write of the game, and that LGBT+ wasn't a popular thing, but sometimes you need to change it up. I truly believe that this app will very quickly get forgotten and dated, even with how amazing it is. If people feel they don't have a true connection to the game, they will quickly loose it. Maybe add some same gender options to the datingenu. Add some interesting scenarios where you come out, deal with homophobic people, or simply adding an option to be gay/lesbian at the beginning of the title after your childhood. You don't even need any scenarios to reach an even wider LGBT+ audience :) I really hoped this helped, Pease consider!!

This game has so much potential and I love the messages the game gives throughout the game. It’s addicting, but also reminds you to leave your phone sometimes and enjoy life with your family. It’s probably the best game I’ve ever gotten. My only complaints are pretty minor. First of all, I think it’s really hard to have a child, harder than it is in real life. Also, the names of people can get mixed up kind of easily. My last complaint is that some of the experiences will say I need a wife or child and can’t do it even though I already have one. Again this game is fantabulous and I recommend everyone who enjoys life games to try it out.
