The mean cruel cold blooded tyrant Ceville ruthlessly rules the beautiful kingdom of Faeryanis. Or rather, he used to rule the beautiful kingdom of Faeryanis, until the brave people revolted against his regime and drove him out of the palace.
The kindhearted queen Gwendolyn did step up to reign over the land with a council of noble and wise advisors.. It seems that this story could end just like any other fairy tale: "And they lived happily ever after..." But no, that's not quite right. Because another evil rises within the land. The treacherous Basilus — counsellor of Gwendolyn and of Ceville before her — plans to take the crown and torture the realm with the help of murderous beasts he has summoned from the planes of eternal darkness.
All seems lost! But hope resides with the one most unlikely person imaginable to save the kingdom and restore peace to the realm: Ceville, the realm's former despotic ruler...
The ancient ruler of Faeryanis and spare-time tyrant, is dreaming up evil plans to exact his revenge on his former counsellor and servant Basilus, who betrayed him.
The noble and somewhat self-important knight Ambrosius is Ceville's would-be-nemesis. He constantly attempts to capture Ceville — but usually with little success. Will they both team up to fight a greater evil?
The gentle and kind girl Lilly is rather an improbable choice to team up with Ceville. Never the less she helps him to escape for the good of the realm (at least that's what SHE thinks!)
This game will give you an impression of what happens, when you mix up the setting and humour of Shrek, Discworld and the Monkey Island series.

Ceville reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from French
And if the slightest evil, it was the smallest evil? Ah, Ceville, Ceville, CEVILLE... A small video game that has not, in my opinion, deserved success! However, the scenario is original, especially at the time: you are the great CEVILLE (1.20 m in heels and a moustache of a span of 60 cm), the undemocratically elected tyrant of Faeryanis, a realm of fairy tales and while you settle the grievances of your good people, this one has the outcuidance of revolting! And if there was only that... Of course not! You know that it is so difficult to find good staff these days, even in fairy tales... Not only your guards-of a vivacity and intelligence... Hem... remarkable-you are trapped but your second, Basilius, turns out to be the gray eminence that organized the revolt! Thrown in the Dungeon, do you still have your eyes to cry and to ruminate an impossible revenge? It's not counting without the support of lily, a nice little girl with the formidable Slingshot, and incidentally, of Ambrosius, proud (and slightly limited...) Paladin-may her enemies tremble in front of her impeccable hairstyle! With such a team, what could be wrong? So, Yes, playing big villains has become much more commonplace for a few years, but at the time, apart from Dungeon Keeper, there were hardly any games that proposed it! And then, frankly, huh, Ceville, with his 20 meter, he's got one of those charisms! Besides that, what can we say about CEVILLE? Already, the game is pretty not only the basic graphics but also the cinematics, it is filled with humor for all tastes (moult references, absurd humor, visual gags, complementarity of the "good COP" Lily and the "bad COP" Ceville, reversations of situations...), it is easily taken in hand and is not too difficult with regard to solving puzzles, we let yourself be carried by history thanks to the characters and we have an epic fight of the UH... Ok? against the big (for the blow) villain! With regard to the problems, one must confess that there are some graphical bugs, especially on the main screen and the loading times, which do not prevent to take advantage of the rest, good quality-I have not had a crash or return to the Office. The other concern is that it is on steam only in English. Fortunately, all the dialogues are not only pronounced but also written, which allows even the experienced non-Anglophones to find themselves there, I think. But frankly, these are small flaws that remove little to the appeal of the game. If so you want to make a point-and-click and have fun (many), wait for it to be on sale and try it. I think you will appreciate it to its proper extent (1 meter 20)!
