Romancing the Kingdom .40 Free Public Download

Postby jilliangates77 » Sun, 17Oct01 23:56

What's Romancing the Kingdom about and how far along is it?

Romancing the Kingdom, a game I’ve been working on for about a year. The latest public release can be found below.

A brief description of the game: Polly, heir to the throne, is anxious about her duties in ascending to such a responsibility. Among them, producing an heir, ruling and being with a man. Does she pursue her destiny, or does she carve her own path?

Gameplay in the current free release has unique content through day 14, future updates will always have more. December's release was the biggest (the current public version .40) and the subscriber only version .45 has an even bigger sequential update in terms of text, story and image quantity.

I've been issuing monthly updates for the last eight months or so and since losing my day job I have been steadily improving and increasing my production capacity. I expect the early Febuary .50 release will have at least two-times the amount of new content as the current non-public version.

Change-log below in case you haven't played before:
What’s the new stuff in .40?

First, clearly, there’s the new name. Then you’ll notice the new game & title screens, the credits (if you get to the end of the current release) and of course 60+ renders, new animation and more.

This is the biggest update I’ve ever done over a month (or in this case, 5 weeks). I think you’ll love the many bug fixes, improvements and new scenes. The latest version will also automatically, “end,” and then post-credits ask if you’d like to continue. That is setup to ensure that if you don’t want to play scenes that repeat, you can easily go back and play through to see different scenes in the existing ~14 days or so of game play.


Where do I get the current free version?
My blog, here, version .40:

Links in the post about how to download via my website or Mega; my website may end up slower, YMMV.

Thanks for letting me share with the the Lagoon audience; everyone here was super helpful with making Superspy Steve come to life.

Thanks, Shark

The game steers clear of the banned criteria as far as I can tell, although there is a lesbian scene between identical twin sisters.

Funny that Tao Dude posted this here before me (when ya'll were AMAZING helping me with SuperSpy Steve). He did tell me that he'd share it here, which I appreciated.

You know what happens when real life interferes with what you would *prefer* to be doing? Anyway, that's been a real issue the past month with my ### needing to ### (sorry, too many IRL details => spoils things).

So what's Princess of Persia about and how far along is it?

PoP as I've been referring to it for a while, is a visual novel / dating RPG that takes place in a fantasy Amazon dominated culture. There are neighboring city-states, there are lesbian themes and at the core, there is a "Princess Bride," vibe where despite the backstory, it could be that Captain Jack and Princess Polly are meant to be together. Then again, that's only one perspective and in game, there are two (so far) themes that I've been exploring.

1) What if Polly and Jack are meant to be, and she has no interest in "sowing her wild oats," as some people say?

2) What if Polly is only using Jack to advance her own personal agenda and is using physical intimacy to achieve her goal?

(not as obvious but a third option that leads to a unique ending...)
3) What if she's too trusting, believes in the best of her family (step-sister, etc) and ends up at the pointy end of the consequences?

My goal is to figure out how to improve my renders, animation and most especially, game play in the things I develop. It seems from feedback that the most recent version has enough to be, "Interesting," so if you have time, I hope you take it for a spin and give me feedback: good, bad or indifferent, anything that can help most certainly will result in a better game. Thank you.

Good idea, then we could get the mods to lock this thread with a pointer to the new one.

Works for me: i didn't know that you could change a thread's owner, otherwise i would have backed that as a way to keep all the posts together.

I updated the intro post. Am planning on doing some more polls etc in the future and would love any & all feedback about the game in progress.

At present, I'm working on the .40 release with a number of improvements, more polish and new content.

Re: Princess of Persia Updated Nov 26th .35 Free Release

Postby jilliangates77 » Sun, 17Nov26 21:57

Bumping this to mention the free release today with two new scenes, two new HD animations, bug fixes & more.

With content through day 12 at present, the game is 40% done and I am trying to crank up the amount of content that goes into the updates; for example, the .35 had more new content than the previous version and I already have more new content bug fixes & improvements in the .40 version than the .35 version had, etc.

Very good game, played it a few days back beginning to end, good story in it, good artwork and animation and worth a play for sure.

When is the next planned update for it?

Thanks for the comment, PinkVendeta.

I do new builds every month for the public which are behind those for people who are supporting the project.

The latest version .40 has content through day 13/14 depending on what actions you take, etc which will be available on Dec 31st, I've just finished producing it and it's the largest monthly update I've done. More than sixty new renders, new animation, a half dozen new scenes (text only), tons of bug fixes, etc. The .40 release I can't promise is bug free but it's a huge step forward and should allow me to focus on only new content, rather than more edits & fixes of stuff that's been in game for a while.

I've also changed the name, even though I've been working on the game for about a year now, to Romancing the Kingdom. Too many people were confused or had different expectations of what kind of content would be in the game with the other title.

The latest update went public (version .40) on December 31st, as I mentioned it would in my last post.

I've edited the lead post to reflect the current title (Romancing the Kingdom) and removed mention of the title that has been deprecated for almost six weeks. The name was causing a lot of confusion which I learned was hurting it's potential.

Last month, I had a loss in my family which hit pretty hard, especially after I lost my job the month before. Am applying for new, doing consulting where I can and staying positive: as a result of the crap-storm, I've done two updates back to back that where my 2nd and 1st biggest. Also (will share in another post) am working on a parallel project to Romancing the Kingdom that's if I'm honest, is my best game by a mile, despite the lack of mature visuals, shall we say?

Feedback appreciated. My website has decent traffic, as do some of my social channels (twitter, facebook, Amazon) and am happy to help cross promote.

Happy new year and I hope as I do, you love the new update. I felt like finally, last month when I produced this latest version, the story, the paths and the plot were coming together in a new way.

Correct me if I'm wrong please. Just started "Romancing the Kingdom" and it looks like "Princess of Persia". Is that correct?
Edit: After playing further into the game I would say that it started as PoP but has evolved well beyond what I remember. Nice job on the updates. Haven't finished the path I took and can see where I could have made other choices. I finally got Jack back to even or a plus 1.

I hope you can work out what's happening in your real life situation and keep going on this project. If not then you can always come back to it when things are looking up. Best of luck to you.
