Aphrodite's Orphan

About the Story

A teenage girl living on a Venus out of 1930's Pulp Science Fiction must search the planet and other worlds with her robot tutor to find the killers of her parents.

This is done in the format of an Interactive Novel, so it's pretty far removed from the standard Dungeon Crawl format. This is more reminescent of the old CYOA books of the 80's and 90's, particulary T.S.R. Hobbies' Endless Quest Books. The characters have arcs which will be determined by the decisions you make.

Far and away one of the most literarily sophisticated IF games available, and it's available for free. It's done by an amateur writer (like everything on CYS), but it's still so engaging and its themes and characters are so rich and enjoyable that you don't really notice the odd comma splice.
