Echoes of Kingdom: The Last Stand (WIP) Updated 13-4-24

Hi @YHGS ! Nice concept. A question: is it possible to know what is approaching Bulatria when you wake up? I mean the choice that is greyed out that shows that my MC remembers the reason they were transported back to the past. Is it possible to get it? I keep getting the choice “I have a funny feeling”.

Hi! I’m not the author, but I’ve done some code diving, and as of right now, there doesn’t seem to be a way for that to be done.
If you’re interested, the condition for it is if sex = 6, but sex can only be 1, 2 or 3

#My Lord."
*set sex 1
#My Lady."
*set sex 2
#Your Grace."
*set sex 3

*selectable_if (sex = 6) #The fall of Bulatria

Also, on a more general note, read through the demo a few times, really like the concept, looking forward to any updates :slight_smile:

No, I made it so that it wouldn’t be possible. do you think it’s too confusing?

It is a little, but when no combination of playable actions enabled it, I took it to be something along the lines of a kind of whisper from PC’s subconscious. Like you’re aware in part, but not yet really aware that you’re aware.

Really glad to hear! That’s pretty much exactly what I was going for.

I like how straight to the point trying to coup the Queen. Most would over complicate this part

Great concept, liked what you did with mysterious creature. But since it is a thing, wouldn’t it be more proper to say What are you? rather than Who are you?

Fair enough!

Now up to 63K words.

The next chapter takes your character on an official tour to prepare for the coming invasion. So far, two of the places you can visit are finished, as well as one of the stops you make on the way.

As always, I would love to hear any thoughts, bugs, etc. you have!

Ah, nothing like finding a good game in Choice of Games to enjoy an afternoon.

I like the premise and the variability with the 3 PCs. I’ll be following for more.

Oh, and I think I found a bug. If during the tour you help the Priestess being attacked, in your departure the game runs the goodbye to the Seeker Bila, even though I didn’t stay with her.

Was just coming to say that. Also, her name wasn’t Bila the night before the morning after that I shouldn’t have had. Are two versions of the game conflicting here?

Good catch! Unfortunately, I need to be up in time for work in a few hours, so I’ll only be able to take care of it later.

At what point does this happen? After having a conversation with the priest/priestess (Leath)? After sleeping with them?

I didn’t choose to sleep with her, wished her a good night or good journey or something like that, and the next page was me waking up and sneaking out of the tent of someone named Bila and getting caught because she was up to greet the sun. This was after setting my preferences to men, also. So double the whiplash for me, who is not interested with women and hadn’t chosen to sleep with anyone.
