About the Story

In this Shakespearean comedy adventure, can forbidden love conquer adorable fairy outlaws?

"A Midsummer Night's Choice" is a 190,000-word interactive fantasy novel by Kreg Segall, where your choices control the story. It's entirely text-based--without graphics or sound effects--and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

"Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind, And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind"

When your father, the Duke, tries to force you to marry, you'll leave civilization behind as you flee in disguise, cross-dressed, into the enchanted forest. Mistaken identities, inexplicable bears, and tiny but fearsome fairies await! (Seriously, they wear little walnut shells for helmets, and ride armored baby bunnies into battle.)

Will you fall into the mysterious Faerie Queene's clutches? Will you (or your identical doppelganger) find true love? Or will your father's spies find you first?

Hold on to your heart! The course of true love never did run smooth.

Play as male or female, gay, straight, or bi.
Inspire the world with your noble deeds, or play everything for laughs.
Star in a play within a play. (Er, within a game...that you are playing.)
Become a jester, a diplomat, a knight, a poet, a shepherd--or leave the world behind and join the fairy court.
Why is there a bear?!

Quite well-written and amusing, February 22, 2017
It was quite well-written and amusing, with a fair bit of replayability. I was laughing through a good section of it. It is one of my favorite text games thus far.

Lovely story, fantastic work, December 8, 2016

Really enjoyable, Segall seems such a great writer. The story keeps you hooked from the very begining to the end. I wish I was a better reviewer but works like these deserve to be mentioned.
