Creatures Such As We (Lynnea Glasser) is an interactive, philosophical romance novel set on the moon (with the romance being optional). It's an exploration of the concept of games as art, as well as the role of player choice and mutability in a story. The writing creates an engaging tone and vivid enough imagery, and it's free (with time delays), with an option to purchase an unlimited version.

Choice of Rebels: Uprising is an interactive fantasy novel focusing on a revolution against a bloodthirsty empire. There are several playable archetypes, each with distinct characteristics that weave their way into the story seamlessly. And, while this thread focuses on enthralling stories, the economic resource management - balancing the interests of conflicting factions without starving while preparing for inevitable war - is surprisingly fun.

Both of those were from Choice of Games (also the platform used by Choice of Robots from earlier in the thread).

Alter Ego is a life simulation game from 1986 where you begin as an infant and grow through childhood, adolescence, early and late adulthood, and senescence, all while making decisions about the meaningful events of your life. There are a few weak points (the romance and work aspects are underdeveloped), but it's a thoroughly touching game.

Yes. Yes!

Pathologic

I strongly recommend it, too. My all-time favourite story-driven game.

Moreover, recently it got a remake, Pathologic 2, and it’s downright gorgeous. Not a sequel, as the title may mislead, so you don’t have to play the original first – it’s all-sufficient on its own (though 2 of 3 separate storylines still are to be added).

The Painscreek Killings. A beautiful story of familial strife, class conflict, and murder, told through what was left behind in an abandoned town.
