No genre ever falls completely out of favor. Heroes Rise takes you to a world where heroes are celebrities and you have to work your way through tons of enemies to end up on the A-list.

I missed out on the text adventure heyday, I only ever played one or two, but the idea is captivating. In a world where the next big thing has to be graphically intense, it's nice to see that text adventures can still carve out their corner of the market.

I love the idea of a text adventure game being released in 2014. Then again, i'd argue Dwarf Fortress is in that camp too and it's WAY popular.

The game seems to be getting mixed reviews on Steam but for the people that love it it seems to be well loved and kind of the same for the haters.

That said, I have thought about making a text based game too and think there is a market for them too.
