Long Live the Queen

First, the trailer.

This game is a rogue-like, where you die, and die, and die again, teaching you how to live in the process. The goal of the game is to get Princess Elodie to her Coronation as Queen, but there are a lot of things blocking your path including foul magic, traitorous Royals, bandits, war, wild animals, and all that delicious delicious (poison) chocolate. All of the game is making choices, there is no action on the first/third-person, top-down, or side-scrolling front. That said, the game is really fun, and even being incompetent can get you pretty far in the game (though not far enough, obviously). My most recent playthrough got me to Week 23 out of 40, and I failed skill checks throughout like it was my job. And then I died in a fit of hilarious first aid; tried to pull an arrow through since it wouldn't come out in reverse, it punctured every internal organ it came across.

I once watched a stream where the person playing went to the Royal Ball by tripping down the stairs; when the question of her competence came up by another Royal, she single-handedly talked the Duke down from his position, got the others to support her, and threw him in the dungeon for talk of a coup. It was hilarious.

I myself have never beaten the game, but it is enjoyable to keep trying, and maybe one day I too, will make it to Coronation.
