Choice of Games Presents The ORPHEUS Ruse

Leap from mind to mind to find your missing body


Written by on


The ORPHEUS Ruse is an interactive spy novel for iOS, Android, Kindle Fire, Windows, OS X and Linux.

The game is entirely text-based, without graphics or sound effects. It’s driven by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

You infiltrate the enemy as a psychic spy, leaping from body to body until your own body is stolen. You must race against time to find it before your mind disintegrates.

You’re not sure who you can trust, and your choices determine the direction of the story.

The first part of the game is free; the rest is available for purchase.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal. "I put my heart and soul into my work, and have lost my mind in the process." - Vincent Van Gogh "I need solitude for my writing; not like a hermit - that wouldn't be enough - but like a dead man." - Franz Kafka "I've been to hell and back, my boy." - Susan Ashworth, The Cat Lady
