About

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 reviews and comments

I find this game intriguing, creative, very interesting, it's something that I jump into from time to time to see what outcomes I can achieve. I feel like it's a little bit hard to understand how to do things and I end up always in the same places, but I guess it's a matter of dedicating to the game and understanding how to play it. 
This game is pretty unassuming, but I think the simplicity of the gameplay works in favor for the overall game. With smart humour and surprisingly meta writing, Reigns: Her Majesty exceeded all expectations I had of this game I bought on a whim. I expected something cute and short, but I got a satirical game with a surprisingly deep political system.

The game operates much like a typical Tinder app (swipe left or right for positive or negative reactions). It expands upon this by adding a political edge to it, such that your answers have consequences on the four pillars of your kingdom (Church, People, Military, and Wealth). Surprisingly, this simple system was able to weave politics into its scenarios well, especially since as a ruler and leader, your decisions will have consequences. Eventually, if those consequences rack up, then you go out just like if you were in Game of Thrones - usually, that means death. It's actually pretty hard to stay alive in this game until much later, and my first few runs as queen ended quite unfortunately under the boots of my citizens due to their love for me, or because I drowned in a lake since my carriage of pure gold broke. Fun times in queendom!

The routes you can take with the stories are quite fun and varied, and there is a large cast of characters and advisers that it's entertaining to read their responses. The humorous dialogue helps, as the writing for the scenarios are witty and take narrative turns that are unexpected as you make your decisions. But as I said earlier, it's pretty hard to make the right decisions in a balanced way. The game is indeed a strategy game, where you must consider each decision you make; furthermore, the items you get must be used in a specific way to unlock the endings, but to figure out how, and the order, must be figured out from the small clues left to you by certain character dialogues.

The only con I can describe about this game is that after a while of playing, you do eventually see the same scenarios and cards, and this can get very repetitive and boring. This is hampered by the fact that to achieve other endings, you have to reset the game and redo all the steps, which I find is incredibly tedious, though once you know how specific dialogue branches work you can navigate those without much problem as you figure out the order of events to get the next ending.

---Originally, the paragraph here contained spoilers. For the sake of not spoilering things (as in my original Steam review) I will say this in place of the originally spoilered paragraph: This game is extremely meta. You're expected to fail to advance. There's a lot more beneath the surface of what this game, as a package, is presenting, and I find that utterly fascinating.---

Art and music are quite nice, and have a distinct style for the game, however there is nothing else to really describe as they are both so minimalist. This game relies heavily on its writing to carry the game, as well as its political system, so the minimalism serves to highlight these.

Overall, I recommend this game, especially since it's already cheap to begin with. I think it offers a rather interesting story in more ways than one, and may take you by surprise in the same way it did to me.

I love Reigns part 1 and I'm looking forward to part 2. This is also good, but unfortunately not terrific. Reasons: The mood is annoyed in many places by strange comments (Feministenquote, things outside the app, etc.), the end is extremely bad and inconsistent, besides, your decisions are sometimes extremely blatant and you die even faster than in Part 1, which also this is not all the consequences are logically comprehensible.

After I've been wanting the whole time a 2nd part of REIGNS ... this was now in fulfillment ... if I defeat the teulel this time? And not only that - the whole thing comes with aTV4 (K) support ... VERY good ... now I can choose from where I rule CRITICS: But please do that with aTV but also for the part 1 ... I'm really a KNIG ... and not a KNIGIN Oh yes, a RESET would be good ... wants to finally outsmart the devil and despite long reign I'll never go there ... and if I'm already in a reigning government (at the end of a cycle) I would like to have the game back can put ... Habs only briefly played but forgive with a bit of trust directly 5 CROWNS *** edit *** ATV control too sensitive - prevents unwanted actions ... Suggestion for improvement (optionally selectable control): after the left / right swiping do not confirm with release - but with pressure on the button of the s-remote remote control ...

The game the successor of the best seller Reigns, based on the same engine as the previous chapter, makes some changes to the general gameplay, replacing the momentary effects of the first chapter with objects that can be improved throughout history. This is precisely the story, a complex plot and difficult to decipher, finding a mix between present in the game and the future, everything is structured on a fairly strange narrative skeleton, I personally did not understand much even though I reached all three endings , I could see similarities with the Matrix movie. Unlike the first chapter, the choices and the timing with which they are taken greatly influence the ending and the possible background, in fact, remaining too neutral you end up continuing the endless gameplay and then get tired and opt for the easiest ending. In summary, excellent characters and good dialogue structure, but the history of the program to beat did not convince me to the end, I preferred the linearity of the first chapter, otherwise excellent on every aspect. I hope that in the next saga there can be a better story; not easier, but simply more logically articulated.
