Is Endgame a suspense thriller in "e-book" form? Negative, Captain. This techno thriller is much more than that. Endgame is an interactive fiction book you can talk to in full English sentences. That's because you are the main character in the story! For the very first time, you are truly in command.
Take Command of a US Navy Cruiser and Change the World...
Iran is hell-bent on their nuclear program and won't back down from warnings from the US and the UN to stop their nuclear activities as they continue to enrich uranium.
North Korea is in reach of deploying submarine-based nukes that threaten the shores of America itself.
Terrorists threaten the global economy as they attempt to plant bombs and sink ships in the Straits of Gibraltar.
World events are unfolding before your eyes and now, for the first time, you can take matters into your own hands and make a difference felt across the world. While in command of a state-of-the-art naval vessel you can stop al-qaeda dead in its tracks, wipe out Iran's nuclear program and plunge North Korea into total chaos.
If you enjoy reading a good novel, now's your chance to step into the shoes of the main character and take control of the story. With Endgame you'll get inside a techno thriller and take command of a Ticonderoga-class guided missile cruiser. You're in for a wild ride as you tackle four different missions across the globe. Only your command skills and mastery of tactics and strategy will determine the outcome of your mission.
"I work for the Navy and Endgame will be a treat." - Marc V.
Techno Thriller All About?
A Captain's life is a hard one. After nine months of deployment first in Operation Iraqi Freedom and then running drug interdiction along the coasts of South America, your ship and crew need a break. USS Las Vegas calls at the Navy base in Sigonella, Sicily for ship replenishment and crew R&R (that's rest and relaxation for all you landlubbers). before official attachment to the US Sixth Fleet.
Your one week of desperately needed shore leave at a private villa in Tuscany is canceled the night you arrive. Before you get the chance to unpack your suitcase you're speeding back to your Ticonderoga-class Cruiser, under orders to disembark for The Strait of Gibraltar immediately. Your top priority is to stop al qaeda from achieving their latest objective; the complete disruption of international trade through relentless terrorist attacks on maritime shipping and the total destruction of Iran's nuclear program. While you're at it, you're under orders to crush North Korea's nuclear program also.
Iran and North Korea are part of the axis of evil and they CANNOT possess nuclear weapons. As for al-qaeda, just one lost freighter can plunge the global economy into chaos as fear drives markets down and runs international trade into the ground. The fate of the modern world itself is at risk if this latest terrorist threat isn't stopped.

Is Endgame a Fiction Book? A Computer Game? No, Both!
It's Interactive Fiction!
Game Features at a Glance:
A compelling plot is wrapped around four different missions in three different regions of the world. Your mission profile runs the range from covert to overt. Your ship starts out in Sicily, cruises to the Strait of Gibraltar, then over to the Middle East to call on Iran and possibly another country, then off to North Korea.
Conduct a "virtual tour" of a modern Ticonderoga-class cruiser deck by deck and room by room. From the General Electric LM2500+ gas turbine engines in the engine room to the Vertical Launch System to the Learning Resource Center, the entire ship has been faithfully implemented in 148 rooms.
Confront a continuing stream of challenges head-on and see if your military strategy is up to the task. Sometimes the obvious answer is the wrong one. At other times, a covert action will solve an overt problem. As Captain, it's up to you to decide.
The game's Naval atmosphere permeates the entire title immersing you in the life of a command officer aboard a Navy vessel.
Fans of techno thrillers and suspense fiction will love the continual interplay of the mission profile and the choices made as a commander.
Every weapon system is accurately depicted and must be strategically deployed for maximum success. There are many ways to blow stuff up and varying degrees of success along the way!
The game is ultra-complex as all possible factors around your multi-mission assignment are effected by your command decisions. A bad decision made at Bushehr can get your ship destroyed on the open sea or on the shores of North Korea. Don't be too alarmed; the superior captain can rectify bad decisions made earlier and still win the game later.
"Endgame is a great story and very feasible." - Ibrahim G
Your crew represent the greater population of the world today. CPO Calhoun in the galley will be frustrated by her career prospects, Master Chief Williams in the engine room is looking forward to retirement. As for the Commander of SEAL Team 3 - he can get out of control aboard your ship and risk his career in the process. Another member of the crew altogether has his own ideas about the ship's mission and tries his hand at sabotage.
Endgame explores a new realm of Interactive Fiction. There is much more prose than a typical title and very different puzzles. The puzzles are the challenges of making the very best command decision possible. At every turn, the story evolves in kind with rich, vivid descriptions of events that unfold in response to the actions of your ship and crew.
