About the StoryIf you see a bright light, duck and cover!
I should point out that this story can be very long assuming you're not dying. Years pass and your surroundings will most likely change. You may very well live a life time in the story if you're lucky. You will also experience a completely different adventure depending on how you escaped the initial nuclear strike. (Assuming you do survive it.)
As with any of my writings, the "story" comes before the "game".

Different branches lead to different adventures varying from survivor-on-survivor squabbles to city-sized sieges, and although the routes to get to these different scenarios aren't exactly obvious at first glance, the tired cliché (among others) of a one-man-army in the apocalypse aren't entertained too much; most heroic (and suicidal) antics get you killed fairly quickly, and the ones that do keep you alive are best left to more ambiguous fantasies for you to live out off-screen. To that extent, even sudden losses and dead-end branches give you a sort of grounding to reality while the conventionally less-explored ideas (like becoming a mutant) get much more air time.
If surviving in a whacky, sand-filled world without dealing with the clutter of video games sounds like something that would pique your interest, this CYOA is it.
Then the story opens with very different and immersive branches filled with that acid humour that characterizes Endmaster, which goes so well with a capitalist dystopian environment. The options are great, each death game is an experience, that makes those endings more satisfying that the few scattered good endings. I recommend it to anyone and more to Fallout fans.
The focus on gameplay coupled with the length and competence of the player character makes this a very interesting game well worth playing through. There are images that also enhance the atmosphere.
