Two children raised together. One, a future King. The other, his whipping boy. 
Their relationship? It’s up to you to develop.

MATHIAS’S HEART HAS BEEN bleeding since his father, the former King, decided to punish you for his mistakes. As the youngest child of a lesser bourgeois, you were raised in the castle, between the King’s cruelty, the Queen’s friendship, and Mathias’s kindness (or supposed kindness?). 

Now, more than twenty Carnivals since your arrival, the King is dead and the Queen’s sickness worsens each day. As the azure taint spreads in the kingdom and the Opalean Wars come to an end, it’s Mathias’s time to sit on the throne.

Will the docile Prince become a kind King, a violent Monarch, or a ruthless Tyrant? Will you have any say in it? And how much will your relationship change?

Develop your personality, see how your choices build, and change your bond with Mathias.

It’s time to help him choose. Will your monarch Love the Guard or Be the King?

About the game:

This game is my first prototype. I’m trying to see if I can give you the freedom to build your relationship with a character while also deciding how you feel about your past and present. 

Our experiences (and the way we feel about them) help define who we are, so, in this game, I’d like you to decide yours–and to face whatever consequences come with that choice.

This story will have 4 chapters and I planned to update the game once every two months, but things might go faster as I finish the art assets! 🙂

Don’t know what to tell me? Well, here’s a few questions:

  • What’s your favorite character?
  • Did you try the different options, or did you follow only one path?
  • What do you think of the black and white aesthetic?
  • Would you like to see more colored CGs, like the one at the end of chapter one?
