Five of Swords is a high-fantasy game set in a medieval-ish world where you can play the second child of a king who rules over the most northern kingdom of the known continent, called Undine.

You’re the second child of a king and since recently you’re suffering from a mysterious illness which does not only grant you magical abilities but will also most likely kill you. Regardless of the latter, magic is bad news – even worse considering who you are and where you live. In order to find a cure for you and all the other infected, you run away from the only home you’ve ever known in a hush-hush-operation to find yourself again in a bustling southern city, where you meet all kinds of people. Some of them are willing to help you, others not so much. Considering all the odds you’re fighting against, everything could actually go according to plan - if only your father hadn’t decided to send your older brother after you in order to retrieve you.
- King Hector, your father and current ruler of Undine.
- Prince Dorian, your older brother and the favourite of your father.
- Queen Cynthia, your mother who’s died seven years ago.
The love interests:
- Lyssa/Lysander, a soldier who is very, very tough on the outside and
also very tough on the insidesoft on the inside
- Aran/Amara, a noble who is hiding their true self behind arrogance and charm.
- Emrys/Elise, a doctor who has seen and lived through far too much for their tender heart.
- Maram, a selfish outlaw who seems to be quite fond of their magic abilities
maybe too fond.
Let’s see what we’ve got so far:
- Play as female, male or non-binary
- Customize your character in appearance and personality
- Build relationships with not only the romance options but with a cast of side characters
- Find love with one of three romance options
All of that being said, I’d love to hear what you guys think! Constructive criticism is welcome. Feel free to ask questions about the MC, the lore or anything else – I’ll do my best to answer them spoiler-free.
Also: Nothing is set in stone so far. Things will most likely change – how much will be dependent on your feedback.
