I’ve begun work on my new game “A Ruler’s Life”. In it, you play a character who grows and matures through complicated moments until you become king/queen/majesty, a position from which you must stabilize the kingdom and, incidentally, your life. Only to discover later that an even worse evil is coming.
Currently it’s about (10~12%, 1 Chapters, 18k Words excluding command lines) done, and I plan on updating every 3 or 4 weeks.
Where the demo currently ends: In the part where you choose where to go with Zeld and your brother. The lake is the only complete option right now.

I know it sounds generic and simple at first glance, but that’s because I’m the kind of writer who develops the story as I write it. Also, I don’t want to give away too much of the plot.
I would love to receive your criticism and be active in this forum, but I warn that I will not tolerate disrespectful or directly aggressive and negative people. If you want to give advice go ahead, but always be careful with the way you do it, respecting that I am a person with a life and I may not have the same opinion as you or I may not be sensitive to the same topics as you.
To finish, I’m a Spanish guy and I don’t speak English natively, so I can make spelling mistakes and I would love that if you see any you tell me about it. I am a college student, bisexual and with a gender identity not very clear to be honest. I hope we get along well and I am looking forward to see your opinions regarding my work.
The descriptions below are obviously spoilers, so view them at your own risk. Even so, what is blurred is even more spoiler than usual and can ruin some important surprises of the story, so as the author of that story I recommend you not to look at it, but you are free to choose. After all, isn’t that what these games are all about?
A childhood friend
- Name: Zeld
- Gender: Female
- Description: Zeld has been helping her family with the harvest for over a year now, and her body shows it. Her skin has become much more tanned than it already is, and her muscles show even under her clothes. With short brown hair and emerald green eyes, she’s breathtaking. Her irreverent attitude frustrates adults and children alike […]
A mysterious man
- Name: Akihiro
- Gender: Male
- Description: A strange man sleeps on top of the corpse of the biggest bear you’ve ever seen. Red-haired and red-eyed (appears to sleep with eyes partially open), you can’t help but notice how his muscles stand out […]
Update June 12, 2021
It’s been 84 years…
Well, memes aside, sorry for the wait. I know I’ve gone a month and a half without updating due to college and final exams, but now that I’m done I hope to do this on a much more regular basis.
As for this update, the lake option is done, with more than 12600 words! What adventures and mysteries are hidden in that place? Find out for yourselves!
I must also say that I have no doubt that there will be mistakes and, above all, problems with pronouns and verbs. As I have said before, English is not my native language and I have already corrected many of these mistakes myself as I was making them and proofreading. If you find any of them don’t hesitate to let me know or complain in this forum or to me by direct message.
And that’s all for now, if this is too long I’m sorry, but I felt I owed an explanation to the fact of being missing for so many days. I promise that the next updates will be shorter.
Have a nice day!
