History

Choice of Games was founded by Dan Fabulich and Adam Strong-Morse in 2009, publishing Choice of the Dragon in January of 2010. They were joined in creating their second title, Choice of Broadsides, by Heather Albano, released April, 2010. That year also saw the publication of Choice of Romance, by Strong-Morse and Albano, and Choice of the Vampire, by Jason Stevan Hill. In 2011, Hill joined Fabulich and Strong-Morse as a partner in the company.

Also in 2011, the company created a second imprint, Hosted Games, to better distinguish between community-developed titles and gamebooks authored by professional writers.
