About the StoryWhen the kids at your high school start developing psychic powers, you and your friends must team up to stop the principal from taking over the world!
"Psy High" is an interactive teen supernatural mystery novel by Rebecca Slitt, where your choices control the story. It's entirely text-basedówithout graphics or sound effectsóand fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.
Play as male or female; gay, straight, or bi. Will you be a jock or a brain? Popular or ignored? Use your psychic powers to help others, or to take what you want. Win a coveted scholarship, star in the Drama Club play - or lose it all and spend your senior year in juvenile detention. How much are you willing to sacrifice to get ahead in the world?
Can you solve the case? Can you save the school? And most importantly, can you find a date to the prom?
- Solve mysteries in the classic teen-detective genre with a supernatural twist
- Find your place in the cutthroat high-school social scene: be an athlete, an actor, a brain, or a rebel
- Uncover the truth about your small town and its secrets
- Instead of stopping the principal, why not steal his powers for yourself, or even join him in his plan for world domination?
- Find your one true love, or more than one! (They never talked about love triangles in trigonometry!)

The writing was pretty decent, game choices and direction were diverse, and characters are for the most part believable. I used to read plenty of CYOA(Choose Your Own Adventure) books in my early childhood and this game helped me relive the fun that I used to have reading those so many years back. Lucky for me, this was written and created far better than some of those books I read so many years ago.
In the end, if you enjoy teen fiction, superheroes, or anything light hearted; you'll probably enjoy this game. It's not free, but if you find it on sale with Steam, it's a definite buy for any CYOA fan.
BUT--some things, like choices and direction seemed a bit forced in a couple moments.
Luckily for the game, there seems to be plenty of multiple endings and the story itself is pretty engrossing.
It's not the best IF on the market, but it's still fun. And that's what's matters. I'll probably play this again a few more times just to see what happens and mess with the stats and outcomes.
If you enjoyed Psy High...
