About This Game
Jest your way from obscurity to royal acclaim as the King’s pet, beloved by all! As a talented young court fool with dreams of fame, scrabble with other young jesters to secure prestigious positions in the courts of Brenton's nobility. In a royal court humming with intrigue, keep them smiling as spies, assassins, blackmailers, ambitious nobles and a reluctant Heir wait in the wings.Fool!
is a 420,000-word interactive fantasy novel by Ben Rovik. It's entirely text-based, without graphics or sound effects, and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.
Dive-roll into the tightrope world of Brenton's courtly entertainers, where your jests can see you seated at the right hand of power, or set down to the gallows.
What manner of fool are you: the shrewd knave ever ready with a venomous quip? The renowned artiste at pains to stay above the political fray? The bawdy buffoon known as much for off-stage antics as on-stage mirth? Or the clever counselor whose real audience is the noble ear they whisper into? Face unruly audiences onstage and skulduggerous schemers in the wings! Can you sling keen jests and still evade the whipping-post and assassin's blade? The kingdom itself will be shaped by your choices!
- Play as male, female, non-binary; gay, straight, bi or ace.
- Evade tossed produce, whippings, assassins and the stocks with your wit and quick feet!
- Battle a lifelong rival for artistic glory within a secret society of writers and gadflys!
- Train your pet ape to master prodigious feats, or at least to stop biting you!
- Mediate between nobles to forge compromise; or stir them up to your own advantage!
- Partner with fellow thespians to win friends, or upstage them to win glory!
- Balance your passion for the limelight with your passion for ...passion!
When the Master calls, you'd do well to come running—with bells on!

Fool! user review
This was a lot of fun, and definitely worth the price for all the hours of fun and content you can get out of it. Most of the characters are interesting enough to make you care about them, and the variety of choices leaves you a lot of options, so you rarely feel like a complete failure. Hail didn't want to romance me and I died a virgin, which is a damn tragedy, but I did get the companionship of a monkey and the respect of the people and royalty alike, so I'll take it.
It's particularly well-written with a colorful vocabulary fitting for the time period it portrays. Two things that irked me: personality stats and the ending.
Glad I picked this up!! Good pacing, diverse set of characters, choices and consequences felt real, a unique story, and the writing was well-fit for the story and insightful.
Really a well written story, voted a well deserved 9/10 : The Origin of a Bipolar (trust me you will understand what I mean by playing the game ;) young Fool and his ascension to court Jester of the King (in few years, from his work on the family farm to the court of a Duke with fellows performers to his encounter with his chimp/simian companion (either he will love you or hate you) to being sent to Royal Court in service to the crown and "duel" other jesters) Feel like the words used catch very well the Medieval setting also Love the dialog with really funny quips and entertaining antics by the main PC. Highly suggest to try this game.
My thumb is up, with a bit of an asterisk. Fool is an extremely well written game. While the Shakespearean English was a bit of a turn-off, I got used to it quickly, and it provided a bit of charm.
Fool! is easily one of the more interesting concepts I've come across in all my experiences in Choice of Games. The language is well attuned and helps me to settle in nicely with the medieval setting. I found the characters to be quite interesting, but most surprisingly I found myself liking the protagonist a lot more than expected (which is odd, considering that it's meant to be me). The only parts that made the experience a bit more dull was the lack of connection between the player and the other characters,
You would be a fool not to like this.
Only one playthrough but the writing was phenomenal. I could do without the humor (two bars with a spectrum of Phlegm-Bile and Blood-Melancholy) system and sometimes it was a bit vague which skill was necessary, but overall one of my favorite CoG games.
Super fun game. Takes a bit to get used to the writing style, but it's well written. I felt really satisfied with my ending even though I failed to seduce anyone. Even my failures felt like a part of my character's story and growth.
Some scenes are brilliantlly written, but that's all.
I've never been more delighted and addicted by a Choice of Games game! If this is your first one, I advise you to go check out Choice of Romance or another earlier one -- they're a little easier to track and balance (though Choice of Romance in particular is really compelling and by no means short or simple). Otherwise, I am on my knees begging you to get this game, especially if you're a fan of the mythos of the fool and various fools of legend. Tip for your first run:
Loved the writing and style of this, definitely a top tier choice of game.
