App description: "Creatures Such As We" is a philosophical interactive romance novel by Lynnea Glasser, where your choices control the story. It's entirely text-basedwithout graphics or sound effectsand fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

Living on the moon is lonely, and stressful, and exhausting. Video games have always offered you an escape to a better life. The easy, happy life you wish you had. Which makes it so frustrating when the game you've been playing ends badly. But you have a chance to figure it out, because the next tourist group is the designers. You can debate with them about art, inspire them with the beauty of outer space, get closer to any one specific designer in particular, and finally find out how to get the ending you always wanted.

^+1 to that. I only have 3 of their sci-fi titles, but i love 2 of them which i have played.

Admittedly though i've only finished Mecha Ace and only got halfway through Reckless Space Pirates, and havent even launched Choice of the Star Captain since i bought it a while back when i was looking for Sci-Fi gamebooks to play.

I would like to get into their superhero titles and the rest of their sci-fi titles as well, but lately looking for time to read books is a bit difficult having a ton of high quality premium games to spend time on as well.

Im going to wishlist a few of their titles right now and see if i can include them with the christmas haul.
