Soul Gambler, an interactive way to risk your inner being

Soul Gambler is a rather interesting role playing game for your Windows Phone. Not only in the game play itself but also in that game's future hinges on a Kickstarter project's success.

Soul Gambler is a interactive story game where you control the direction of the story and the fate of the main character. You play the role of Faust who is given a chance to sell his soul for the life of his dreams. The interactive comic is an interesting game and in a way a tease of things to come if the developer gets enough support from his Kickstarter campaign (opens in new tab). Soul Gambler may not appeal to everyone but it does make for a unique Windows Phone game experience.

Game play for Soul Gambler is straight forward. You follow the story by tapping on the screen to advance through the story boards. At various junctures of the story, you will have a series of options to choose from and the story proceeds based on which option you choose. You do have character attributes that you establish early on in the story and are displayed at the bottom of the screen along with your soul capacity.  These attributes will influence the outcome of the path you choose.

The game can be very short if you don't accept the proposal to risk your soul. Tempt fate and accept the proposal, you can then lead your character through the first two chapters of the story.

Additional chapters to the story are dependent on how successful the developer's Kickstart campaign is. Based on the Kickstarter page for Soul Gambler's current status, it looks like the developer has met his initial goal and additional chapters will be headed our way.  Hopefully sooner than later because it doesn't take you long to tackle the first few chapters.

Graphics are nice, the storyline isn't too bad but the interactive comic novel may not appeal to everyone's gaming preferences. Soul Gambler is a free game for your Windows Phone and you can find it here (opens in new tab) in the Windows Phone Store.
