Good example of the genre CK2 is, at its heart, a game about stories. The game might be writing them itself, but that time you had to drown the Bishop of Worcester in his bath so you could change the inheritance laws to favour your heir will stay with you forever. So Paradox's foray into interactive fiction needed strong writing to live up to that, and there it succeeds. The game elements feel quite minimal though, and ultimately it feels like a Choose Your Own Adventure book. It’s a good one, but expensive for how long it is.
Constant Crashing This app seems like it would be fun, but it constantly crashes on me. Also, the interface is slow/laggy. $5 seems like a fair price to me...if it worked! *edit* this app was crashing on me when I had the font set to the "Garogier," but appears to work using the other fonts. Will re-rate after I finish the story
It's a neat little game Has a few typos here and there. Note to Paradox: If you get Michael to accept the marriage proposal, it's impossible to get your courtliness high enough to have a legitimate heir. If you would remove the cunningness increase that involuntarily occurs just before you return back to the keep, and make it so that you can have a legitimate heir with just 2 courtliness, this problem would be solved. I've spent probably 10hrs trying all the different options; so I know what I'm talking about.
Well written, entertaining, over priced As a CK2 fan, I decided to give this game a shot. It provides an hour or two of entertainment, and the story is well written, but it's simply too short (even with different choices) to justify the five dollar price.
DISAPPOINTED I love CK2 thats why I bought his game. Im disappointed that the stories are so short. Choices are good though but still the price of the game doesnt match up with the game itself. So disappointed.
RNG Gods I hate RNG. If you do too, avoid this, because you'll be annoyed every 5 minutes that you picked the wrong choice 10 minutes before. Go buy one of Choice of Games' works if you want something like this, but way, way less arbitrarily frustrating.
Thanks for alerting us to the fact that one of the chapters was missing a fair chunk of the text. We're happy to announce that we found the missing text and put it back into the game.
Unfortunately we have to reset your progression as it was corrupted by the missing script. Sorry about that.
