... I forgot to update this page. Sorry!

Long Live The Queen is now available for sale on Steam and Good Old Games!

As promised, once we had secured a larger release we went through and jammed as much new content as we could manage into the game. This includes a host of new options and subplots in the story, some new faces:

Palace Maid

There's an updated checklist with new achievement graphics - we kept all the old checklist items and added several new ones (many referencing things from the new plots, to give experienced players some tips on what to look for). The achievement list now spans four pages to cover all these things:

Achievements

And something else we'd been wanting to do for a long time, the epilogues at the end of the game (if you lived that long) now have illustrations depicting the various effects and outcomes you've managed to unlock for Nova. These are also collectible and browsable from the checklist option on the title screen:

Epilogue Windows

But you'll need to go play it yourself if you want to see what the other windows look like!

Thanks to everyone for supporting us this far, it's really been great.

At the moment I don't actually think a direct sequel - or even another game too similar to this one - is in the plans. Elodie's experience works because she is young and clueless and under a massive amount of pressure in a short period of time. The stars are aligned against her, and it's a massive fight to get her out of that. Duplicating that scenario would dilute it.

That doesn't mean there won't be more games with lots of stats and characters to shape! Just that they'll probably be quite different.

This game was really fun. I really got attached to Elodie and tried all I could to make sure she was alive. It's really tough when you figure out very early on it is very hard to please everyone.

The demo was most enjoyable; short, but enjoyable. I especially love the music! This is a game that I would not mind purchasing, in order to experience the saga through to the end; whichever end that might be... :-)

I'd give the demo a try but... they usually end right when it gets interesting then I just delete the demo and ignore the full game.
The 'cut off' ruins the whole thing for me.

I'd get the full game but I don't buy before playing... maybe if I have spare money I'll take a gamble and pay for this.

I'm a full-time indie, almost anything I make is pay in some way. :)

There *is* a discounted alpha going on at the moment for my forum members. The game code was mostly finished quite a while ago, but we've been held up waiting for the art, and considering which bits of art are missing I haven't been able to make a proper webpage for the game yet. So if you want to get in on the testing and the discount, register at Hanakoforum.nfshost.com and look for the hidden game forum.

Didn't really like The Paying Guests that much. It was readable but not very satisfying in the end. Ah well.
