I can't stop playing this. I come back to it every night. Chills rush down my spine every time I reach an ending. This is more than a video game - this is a work of art. The transition animations, artwork, the way the pixels move. The story. The text. The dynamics. Art.

i'm pretty sure there is no good ending in this game, is there? wonderful and engaging story though!
what's the best ending you've gotten so far? i'd be curious to compare
i never wake up the next day. i think one dream was somewhat pleasant, but i forget the details of it now.
that was mine too!! itch says i have five hours of in-game time, and of all the endings, the best one was the -you survive and have many more days at court, struggles and hardships but good times too- death-dream. and then the second best was -you remember the childhood days before you took the throne. why cant it stay like this forever- death dream.
i can't help but feel like there just has to be some combination of variables, and if i get them just right i'll encounter the happy ending.
i still havent figured out how to get something good out of the mysterious noble in the hallway.
same! i'm pretty sure there's no way to get a real conversation of of the random guy... i'm pretty sure i've tried all the options. i think i got the dream about continuing on as queen also, but i am not even sure how i did it anymore. it almost seems random because i tried to redo the same options and could not get it again! i'm convinced there's no way to survive.
I have been coming back to this game consistently/daily because I'm so determined to see it through to a "good" ending. I've become so dedicated to actually succeeding. This game has had me awestruck more than once, the pacing is wonderful and I'm so happy that you get a different experience nearly every time!
Really interesting style/presentation. I'm curious if my choices actually had much or any impact on what happened in the end. Regardless, very interesting game! I liked it a lot.
Hi. I'm having trouble on the first screen. There seems to be a loading bar that won't progress. I'm on a mac, using Safari.
hey, sorry about that! afaik it's a compatibility issue in phaser, but seems like chrome/firefox on mac work fine
Yup! I was playing it in Chrome just now. So far I've gotten to 3 different endings, but I'm looking forward to finding more later. Great job with the writing! -- And I love how the music responds to certain things. I won't say more on that, to keep from spoiling anything.
