Creative and Polished
Long Live the Queen was first released on PC nearly 10 years ago and now debuts on console, showing off the talents of a development studio that presents games of graphical beauty and deep and compelling interactive experiences. Hanako Games has been releasing video games since 2003 with an emphasis on narrative and player choice.
And so the Story goes………………
Long Live the Queen begins with the young princess Elodie arriving at the castle of Nova after the untimely death of her mother, the Queen. She has no time to mourn, but must immediately begin making preparations to become the next Novan ruler. While she frantically studies and trains to raise her skills, others attempt to take advantage of Nova’s vulnerability. Elodie must fend off invasions, assassins, schemes, and civil war in order to survive long enough to be crowned Queen.
Long Live the Queen mixes and pulls together three genres: RPG, simulation and strategy into a unique formula. The developer continued with their own ideology,“It’s not so much that it uses elements from all three of those standard genres and more that the gameplay is something entirely different which might be described as any of those three. The gameplay consists of choosing what skills Elodie learns and then deciding how to respond to a series of events and crises that happen within her country. Many choices are not available or will lead to disastrous outcomes unless Elodie has sufficient skill to handle the problem effectively, and every choice has ongoing consequences for the story and the country.”
Let the Journey Start
Elodie begins as a fourteen-year-old girl, depressed and afraid after the death of her mother, with no skills to her name but enormous potential for growth. As the player manages her moods and training, she might become a wise diplomat, a cruel tyrant, a dashing warleader, or the mistress of devastatingly-powerful magic.
