Sit on the throne as a benevolent (or malevolent) medieval monarch of the modern age and swipe your royal fingers either left or right to impose your will upon the kingdom. Survive the seemingly never-ending gauntlet of requests from your advisors, peasants, allies, and enemies while maintaining balance between the influential factions of your kingdom. But beware; each decision you make might have implications and unfortunate consequences down the road that could put your reign and family’s dynasty at risk!
Each year of your reign brings another important – seemingly random – request from your unpredictable kingdom as you strive for balance between the church, the people, the army, and the treasury. Prudent decisions and careful planning make for a long reign but unforeseen motivations, surprise events, and poor luck can take down even the most entrenched monarch. Extend your reign as long as possible, forge alliances, make enemies, and find new ways to die as your dynasty marches along through the ages. Some events will span on centuries, with an intrigue involving burning witches, scientific enlightenment, wicked politics and, maybe, the Devil himself.

Great and fun game for history lovers!
I've only had this game for one night and I'm already in love with it! What a neat concept, to effectively play as a dynasty of kings! One that could last for over 1,000 years, as mine did! I could hardly tear myself away. It seems random and a little repetitive, but life can be like that, even for kings. You start in the early 7th century, and I made it past the turn of the 21st century. Every choose you make affects your kingdom, and while there are several ways to lose your throne (and your life), is IS possible to get a good ending! Cool idea, that you can play as all these kings, even if it is a little anachronistic to have a medieval style court long past that era. Try it- you won't regret it!
A compelling experience reducible to decision trees
In a simplistic determined model of interactions. The game reign shines as it provides a curious insightful narrative woven in a game mechanic that is essentially commentary on how simple and discriminatory some of our most popular relational (speaking of Tinder) institutions are.
In this game the ability to control relationships is turn upside down. The volition and powers the NPC have end up controlling you. Your only chance of survival is routinely memorizing patterns for swiping and prompts to succeed at a certain narrative branch. Once a branch is complete, it only opens up more.
Pivotal concepts in this conversation are life, death, control, and legacy.
I have played this game for almost 2 years now! I love this game, you are a king and you must make choices, but there is more than what you may think. The choices you make will lead to other choices that are linked together. But this game is also a fight against the devil (I beat his by the way!) and you have to find a way to trick him and break the curse. This game is worth the money. I suggest everyone check it out.
P.S. the top review is wrong, the choices do have consequences and lead to other choices that are linked together!
