Story

Ever since the marriage of King Idris to a woman of low birth he met at the Annual Grand Ball, his hold over his kingdom has steadily slipped from his fingertips. Queen Ella's intelligence and cunning has caused the kingdom to flourish in ways it never has in generations passed. However, this rendered the king as an accessory to the throne, confidence in his authority gone, and that's not even the worst part.

Four years after their marriage, while the two are seen to be getting ready for the Annual Grand Ball that will happen on the Friday of November 13th, King Idris gets a prediction a week prior that a tragedy will occur on the same day.

Author's Notes:
- This was very loosely inspired by Cinderella but in the perspective of the prince after they've been married. I've seen many complain about the tale of Cinderella which was the story of a woman who waited for her prince charming to save her to get out of a bad situation. I have incorporated that here in my characterization of Ella.
- Now, having brought up Cinderella, I pose the question: "Is it really a smart idea to marry a girl you just met?" Then every way this decision Cinderella's made could possibly backfire came to mind and I thought this would be an interesting perspective to write from.

I don't play demos because I've had my heart broken too many times with abandoned projects LOL, but I am watching this intently for when it gets released.  It sounds amazing.

Oh boy I can RELATE so hard to that, abandoned projects and whatnot. Thank you for your support! I'm constantly working on it and I hope you end up liking the finished product! :D

I'm sure I will, good luck!

Nice twist on Ciderella story, for sure! Looking forward to playing the whole game once it's out :)

- Did you enjoy it overall?

The overall aesthetic of the game, the fairy tale vibe is  definitely there.

- Who was your favorite character?

Bazyl, I have a soft spot for the loyal knights. I wonder what kind of development would he get later in his route.

- Which was your favorite route?

Bazyl, because I enjoy his and Idris's interactions.

- Anything I could improve on for my next game?

Hard to say for now, but more music variety is always welcome.

- Anything else you want to tell me?

Good luck with this game and your future projects!

Thank you for answering the feedback questions! I'm so glad you love Bazyl! I put in much care when I write Idris and Bazyl's interactions as I really wanted them to have a believable and organic friendship apart from the loyal knight dynamic. I hope you enjoy the full release when it's finally out! :D

(1 edit)

I never thought on the perspective of the prince in the cinderella story and it's intriguing. So far I am curious to know the truth behind Ella's intentions on marrying the prince.

I'm looking foward for the full release.

Thank you! I'm constantly working on it, I'm glad to see you're interested! :D
