Some material may be inappropriate for persons under age 13. If this were a movie, it would probably be PG-13.

You are Eve's child. Gender and name is customizable. Go through the growing years of the new Homo Perfectus, and learn from the older Imperfects to prepare for the time when you are forced to take charge of the new generation of mutants.

Both the power and the companion systems are very similar to Homo Perfectus 6. The main difference is that the companions have health bars, and can die if used poorly.

I intend to make this the final Homo Perfectus installment, although I have said that before, so I don't know whether that will last. This story is a lot longer than any of my past stories, as it goes through many years of the main character's life, and is really Homo Perfectus 8, Homo Perfectus 9 and Homo Perfectus 10 all in one (in order to have the decisions made through one of them to affect the others without having a tedious numerical system).

Whether you can get the super heroic ending or not depends on how many team members you have, so if you can't get the best ending, that's probably the reason.

EDIT: Added a page to the story. Just a single page, that's all, but it was a story Baryon tells that I just thought of and I had to include it somewhere. This of course meant I had to unpublish and republish the story so if your save just got deleted, that would be why.

This is and has always been an amazing series, and Homo Perfectus 8 was the perfect end to it.
I've played it a million times yet I never get tired of it.
One thing- I have no idea how to catch Black Locust! Is it impossible???

After a much needed hint from the author, I finally caught the black locust. Defeated photon, defeated black locust, got super heroic ending! Finally! Keep up the good work!

I've played this maybe 4 times and I still cannot figure out how to catch the bug thief. However, I FINALLY figured out how to beat photon. And since I myself was looking for a way to defeat him, I'll help the next person out.


Get as many friends as possible to help you. Read EVERYTHING. That's all I will say.

This was a great end to the series in my opinion. Still never figured out how to catch the Black Locust though

OK, finally figured out how to beat Photon, but... even with this Super-Heroic ending...
""Googles? What happened?"
"Good morning to you too" Googles replies and disconnects himself from the power source.
"Where is Photon?"
"Photon? You mean that failed science project Gharus tried to create?"
"Yeah, the chamber was empty when he opened it, don't you remember?"
I look out the window, at Gorgon city, and see that everything is normal. The church is gone, the houses look normal. Everything is back to normal. Photon, and everything he did, has been undone."

I get this eerie feeling that what if... Photon hacked into googles and altered the MC's brain without MC knowing so that ending was just an illusion MC is experiencing? @@

It is a very well thought of and good written game and it definitely deserves to receive an 8/8. But... am I missing something to beat Photon or was the game designed for it to be unbeatable ?

It was very interesting. Even if I skipped some parts of the story( other books or interactive books), I really liked the whole thing. You should ask someone to help you transform this beautiful story into something like a video game( third person action/adventure!), a movie or an animated series( a movie could look scary).
[Just ideas]
Problems: The character's power should evolve: we don't have the impression of becoming stronger. (Don't make things too complicated too ??)
