Regal developer Nerial and the institutional monarchs at Devolver Digital have announced Reigns, a card-based adventure game that puts you in the roll of a medieval monarch with a decidedly modern approach to decision making. Swipe left, swipe right, and rule your kingdom as you see fit while finding balance between the most influential groups and avoiding usurpers at every turn!
Aspiring monarchs will need to survive the seemingly never-ending gauntlet of requests from their 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! Over 400 unique cards, interconnected story paths, and surprise events assure that no two reigns are ever the same!
“Market research showed that the kids love making history altering decisions that will effect the lives of millions of subservient people but want to do so by casually sliding their thumbs left and right with minimal effort,” noted Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker.
The most skilled rulers will carefully track their dynasty as they find new and more inventive ways to die at the hands of those they rule over. Royal challenges like marriage, alliances, and simply living to 30 give short-term goals and long-term rewards in new cards and content.
