No one ever said ruling a nation would be easy.
Especially not if there is a conspiracy brewing that threatens not just your people, but possibly the peace across the entire known world.

You are the ruling Sovereign of the nation of Kadalogia, the most powerful empire in the known world of Sildrys. And sinister forces are conspiring against you.

Can you uncover the dark deeds?
Prevent war?
Bring peace and mend torn bonds?
Or will you let it go to the known Hells?

What are the pros and cons of either choice?

Also, following the link gives me the message that the game is set to private, and I need the direct link.

ah, dang. hold up

EDIT: does it work now?

As for the pros and cons:

The only difference would be in on of the antagonist’s motives and in how an NPC reacts, truth be told.

It works now. :ok_hand:

Well, if the genderlocking is not super important, I’d keep it open.
But I’m biased, as I wouldn’t play it, if it was locked to female…

It isn’t super important AND can the motives/etc be made to vary anyway. Hell, I could even have the motives be random per play through

I’ll keep the poll open however

When hosted games are finished, they can be submitted to Choice of Games; if approved, yes, they will appear on Google Play.

Then please make it free for all, as those seem like fairly minor plot points. Particularly if it only changes the antagonist’s motives and not their actions.

I am not comfortable with games locked to one gender. Especially story driven games. Unless it is super important that is.

I know you said you planned to have more in the demo, but I really like what I’ve seen so far. The worldbuilding is already interesting, I enjoy the fact we’re empress and actually ruling right from the start, and the banter between the ministers flowed well. I liked the “interfere and set them straight” option – it reminded me of Ned Stark.

If I had any criticisms, it’s that I think the relationship names on the stat bars are too long and make the font too small.

Also, this line:
You nod curtly. And hit your flat hand unto the table, calling for silence. “Lord Fournier, Lord Turnbull, sit down. Lord Phillips, I’d like you to share your train of thoughts.”
This works if the MC is bold or blunt, but it feels too direct for a timid or polite character.

Otherwise, I’m looking forward to hearing what else the council has to say. :relaxed:

As the poll was pretty definite about not making the game genderlocked, I went ahead and uploaded a new, open for all version.

It’s at 2k words per playthrough now, with about 3k words with code.
No saves yet, nor achievements.

Enjoy nonetheless

I liked the new update. I mentioned before the banter between the ministers flowed well, and I think the options for us siding with Phillips or Fournier adds to that. It helped give a sense that the empress isn’t just being an audience for the ministers’ squabbles but actually participating in it. I also liked how there’s the possible repetition and habit of the MC looking out the window as they think.

One question – Cadwallader talks about “the Papal” – is that the title of the religious leader? I’m just thinking that papal is normally an adjective concerning the Pope so it made me wonder if a word was missing. :thinking:

Looking forward to what Phillips has to say about Lord Thornburn. :relaxed:
