The Royal Trap

Madeleine Valois is a prince's companion. Her job is to guide and advise him, to make him look good so that he can land a royal bride. It is her responsibility to keep him out of trouble - not to let him walk blindly into a political minefield, not to let him get arrested for a crime he didn't commit, and definitely not to let him fall in love with her.

Unfortunately, events are not going according to plan...

Newly released! Guide Madeleine through the dangers of swords, pistols, and palace intrigue, while trying to secure her own future and just possibly find romance along the way.

This is a pure visual novel featuring 115K words and around fifteen possible endings... including the possibility of your ignominious demise. Expect plot twists and backstabbing. What palace would be complete without them?

surprise sale

If you haven't heard, Magical Diary is on massive discount on Steam as part of the Linux Launch Party madness.

I didn't know it was happening until about five minutes before it did. :) So while TRT is still not quite ready yet, I did at least manage to get you all something special for Valentine's Day.

since I don't do the tumbling thing

a link to a list of freeware games. Largely 2d/pixelly, tending to platformers, adventures, and horror. But trying to quickly sum it up will always get it wrong, so go look for yourself.

Super Diamond Rumba!

At a glance this reminds me a bit of my now mostly-forgotten skating game, by the combination of sliding tiles to create a playspace that a character moves through. Looks like this is probably EASIER than mine was though. I am always too complicated for casual.

Jump to about 45 seconds in to get past the text explanations if you don't read Japanese. If you can read Japanese or want to play anyway, the game is here.

And DAMMIT google why do you keep trying to make blogger as unusable as possible? I thought you FIXED that wrapping-in-the-middle-of-words nonsense.
