Description:

Reigns: Her Majesty is the revolutionary follow-up to the smash swipe ‘em up hit Reigns. A cultural renaissance has bestowed the world with a new era of knowledge and enlightenment but greed and jealousy still conspire against the benevolent queen. Outwit and outlast those that would seek to depose you and your husband by swiping left or right, making just (or unjust) decisions on all manner of royal matters. Maintain the balance between the kingdom’s most powerful factions, use mystical items from your inventory, and navigate the increasingly complex politics and personal relationships of your dynasty.

New Kingdom, New Drama: Your royal decrees and unpredictable requests of the people will shape both your time on the throne and the future of your dynasty. Carefully navigate the foolish politics and emotional pleas of the kingdom’s eccentric subjects to find balance between the most powerful factions of the land.

Mystical Inventory: Find and upgrade five special items in a new inventory system. Use your powerful items on character cards and unlock special paths in the ever more complex narrative of your kingdom.

Royal Challenges: Reach specific goals set before each new monarch’s reign to unlock new sets of cards and new directions to take the story of your dynasty.

Nerial and Friends: Reigns: Her Majesty is a collaboration between François Alliot (design/programming), Arnaud de Bock (art), Jim Guthrie (music), and Leigh Alexander (narrative director).

Reigns: Her Majesty

Put simply, if you loved the original Reigns you’re going to love this one even more. The writing is sharper, the ideas are more interesting, and there’s a fizz and a bubble to proceedings that makes you want to push deeper into the experience.

You’re still swiping cards left and right to make decisions, but this time around you’re a queen. Well, you’re THE queen. Not that one, the one in the game. You need to balance the esteem that four factions hold you in. Go to far either way and you’ll die. Die, and you’ll be reincarnated as the next queen and start a new era of rule.

Price Drop: Reigns (Games)


Reigns 1.05

Device: iOS Universal
Category: Games
Price: $ 2.99 -> $ .99, Version: 1.05 (iTunes)

Description:

Sit on the throne as a benevolent (or malevolent) medieval monarch of the modern age and swipe your royal fingers either left or right to impose your will upon the kingdom. Survive the seemingly never-ending gauntlet of requests from your advisors, peasants, allies, and enemies while maintaining balance between the influential factions of your kingdom. But beware; each decision you make might have implications and unfortunate consequences down the road that could put your reign and family’s dynasty at risk!

Each year of your reign brings another important – seemingly random – request from your unpredictable kingdom as you strive for balance between the church, the people, the army, and the treasury. Prudent decisions and careful planning make for a long reign but unforeseen motivations, surprise events, and poor luck can take down even the most entrenched monarch. Extend your reign as long as possible, forge alliances, make enemies, and find new ways to die as your dynasty marches along through the ages. Some events will span on centuries, with an intrigue involving burning witches, scientific enlightenment, wicked politics and, maybe, the Devil himself.

*iPhone 5 / iPod Touch 6 / iPad mini 2 / iPad Air or later recommended.

Tinder, Disasterpeace, and epic binary choices – Why Reigns should be your next iOS game

What do infamous hook-up app Tinder, indie gaming great Fez, and classic choose-your-own-adventure games have in common? They’re all reference points that have been named in conjunction with an intriguing new iOS game called Reigns.

Developer Nerial has produced something special in Reigns – a genuinely fresh mobile adventure game that wouldn’t feel as good on any other format. Here’s why we think you should be playing it.

Tindering your assignation

At the heart of Reigns (download here) is a simple binary decisions system. As the young ruler of a medieval fantasy kingdom, you’re fed a succession of decisions, each one generally corresponding to a year of your reign, with two possible choices.

These can range between a simple yes/no on whether to deciding whether to adopt an offensive or defensive stance in a duel. This swipe-based card system has led to comparisons with hook-up app Tinder. As improbable as that might sound, it’s a sensible UI choice that gives Reigns an easy-going flow, placing all emphasis on the decision-making process it itself.

Regardless of the choice you make, it will have an effect on four core areas of your kingdom – the church, the people, the army, and your wealth. If any one element becomes too strong or too weak, it will mean the end of you…
