The two Fighting Fantasy games are both good (and they are committed to doing 3 more! )

Can recommend these ones:
1. Tin Star - Wild West setting, a lot of text, a lot of non-linearity. Also top reviews (I guess the average score is a crazy 4.9 stars!)
2. The Choice of Robots - A game about robots written by an actual robotics scientist. Loads of meaningful choices and philosophical questions.
3. Study in Steampunk - Steampunk setting, good writing.
4. Heavy Metal Thunder - Decent but very lightweight writing, kind of a sci-fi pulp fiction with much fighting. But! A rare case when it actually feels like an action game, even a first-person shooter I'd say. Great resource management mechanics (super limited inventory, super limited skill slots), UI, music and illustrations are great, too.
5. Crusader Kings: Chronicles by Paradox Interactive (companion game to their PC strategy with the same name) - Medieval setting. Quite short, but very good writing and enriching. Nice visuals and fight mechanics, too.
