Chivalry is Not Dead is a game by Deirdra Kiai. It is also a story. Not the kind that unfolds passively, but more like the bedtime stories you may have heard when you were younger, where you got to periodically interrupt and change the outcome.

Chivalry is Not Dead is a cartoon fairytale. It is also a social commentary of sorts. To be honest, it doesn't seem to very sure what it is. It does, however, try its best to be entertaining.

Chivalry is Not Dead is not an epic. Like a bedtime story, it'll be over in an evening, but also like a bedtime story, it won't always be the same every time you play it.

Chivalry is Not Dead stars a horribly disfigured creature named Phlegmwad (whose head is conveniently covered by a paper bag), employed as an assassin for the evil Lord Horrible. His first task is to kill the good Queen of Everything. Or is it the evil Queen of Everything, and the good Lord Horrible? What do good and evil mean, anyway? This, in the end, will be up to you to decide.

Adventure Gamers has published an “Adventure Architect” series by Deirdra Kiai, detailing the making of her one-woman game Chivalry is Not Dead.

Lord Horrible's Lair

It's a fantastic insight not only into managing a fairly ambitious project with a team consisting of yourself, but of the process of creating a semi-linear, story-driven independent game in a mere six months!
