And remember - the chicken had it coming.

“Each time the protagonist dies, you find yourself coming back with a vengeance, determined to try a new strategy, a different approach to her upbringing. It's borderline addictive. It's also likely to make a monster out of you. By the end of my first successful playthrough, I had summarily butchered everyone who even thought about looking at us funny, forced the princess into a continuous state of docility and lied my way through every social encounter possible. Was it evil? Yes. Was it glorious? Definitely.”

“Somehow it never occurred to my princess, whom I’d lovingly crafted into a tense, paranoid warlord, that she shouldn’t empty a box of mysterious mailcandy into her mouth. You would think studying poison and espionage would have saved me from this espionage poison, but instead, a list of other skills, skills I never studied, princess skills, were key to avoiding this fate. I guess that’s the lesson: you can’t build a successful Arya without adding a little Sansa.”

“If you’re the sort who can sink your teeth into a full afternoon of tabletop strategy, you’ll be happy here. Long Live The Queen is a slow-paced, cozy evening kind of game, good for folks who like numbers and critical thinking. And death. Pink frosted, chubby cheeked death.”

About This Game

Rule the world or die trying!

Being a Princess is not an easy job. Being a Queen is even harder. Especially when you're only fourteen years old, and the reason you've inherited the throne is that your royal mother has just met an untimely end.

Now power is up for grabs. You may be the official heir, but much of the country's nobility would love to steal the throne for themselves. Aggressive neighbors will take advantage of any weakness to enlarge their borders at your expense. And that's not even mentioning the magical dangers which are lying in wait...

Can you survive long enough to reach your coronation?

Dear Gwenelle,

Ha! I mean Duchess of Sudbury! I am actually trying to work on my royal demeanor, I swear, okay? Life is just so crazy! My moods are so erratic lately.

Sorry I can’t make it to your party! My reflexes and archery skills are way below 50, Lore is just sooo much more interesting.. and bandits are everywhere. I even had this bad dream about traveling, and even though I’m not 100% sure it was related to your party, I’m going to stay on the safe side. I’m sure you understand, though, right? I’m sure you would prefer receiving presents from your ALIVE friend rather than, well, not.

Yeah, okay so I know you *might* not trust me because of that other timeline where I held Lottie hostage… but I had my reasons, okay!? I’m sure you know how it feels when everyone is judging you and you’re just like ah, how am I supposed to feel -Pressured?!

It’s hard being our age and in charge of so much stuff. But hey, at least I sided with you when I *did* go to your party that other time!

Do you have timelines or are you just.. like.. stuck? That would suck. OMG, I hope you have more than one outfit! O_O

Another reason I hate not being able to go to your party this time (because every time feels fresh, okay? my room is always just the way I left it..) is because I really wanted to pick up Briony!! All of her letters were annoying at first but we’re lovers in another timeline. Isn’t that sweet?!? So I figured I could get some early action. ^_^ Nothing with a squid, though! I told you about that poem, right? Sometimes I thought was hilarious, sometimes I just got angry about it.. have you gotten anything like that? Just wondering…

I might be +Lonely about not being able to go to your party, but you should be +Cheerful about the presents I sent you!

Don’t worry, they’re not chocolates. I would have sent you some apples from my garden—they’re so delicious they’re known to be stolen!—but I would hate to send you—my friend, a duchess—an apple beaten-up by travel. So when the roads are safer you can just come here and we can have all the delicious apples we want, and even play with toys just like old times! Ps xf dbo krtu pru. ^_^

Oh, and to answer your question, I have no idea why my dad doesn’t have a top lip. Like, sure, keeping a stiff upper lip is sound advice. But he just doesn’t have one in the first place!

Your friend,

P.S. My handwriting is worse than Adair’s, but who cares?! I funded the printing press!

Long Live the Queen? It's already hard enough surviving til the corination date 0_0

Seriously though

Long Live the Queen

Plot/Story + Gameplay 8.9/10
Animation/Design 9/10
Audio/Soundtrack 9/10

Plot/Story + Gameplay 8.9/10
You are the female protagonist Elodie, who is next in the line of succession to the Throne! Sadly your mother dies when you're only just 14 years old, which means it is now your turn to take up the role as Queen of Nova! But it isn't as easy as it sounds, many in the kingdom will attempt to take advantage of your mother's death and assassinate you.

The Visual novel is very much like a dialogue-strategy type, being 14 years old the protagonist is relatively young and has much to learn. You the player will manage Elodie's weekly lessons and the topics you choose to work on will determine the outcome of any given situation your placed in. On weekends you're free to do as you wish around the castle, whatever you decide to do will affect your mood, and that mood will have an effect on how well you do in your lessons, being too cheerful will affect your mental performance and you won't gain many points on that skill.

Skills really do have a great impact on your future in this game, sometimes if you don't have the required skill for a situation this will lead Elodie to do some rather illogical things one prime example is how she got shot by an arrow and placed the arrow deeper within herself! Having no knowledge on what to do when you get shot is fine, maybe you had great trust in your royal guards, but ramming an arrow deeper into yourself?

Animation/Design 9/10
Animation/design isn't very different from most Visual Novels, but at times I felt the background seemed quite dark at times, I believe it adds to the lonely feeling in the game, you're not surrounded by a lot friends or family, but when you are, it's short-lived.

Audio/Soundtrack 9/10
I believe the soundtrack is simply beautiful, the entire soundtrack consists of 27 piano pieces. They really fit the right track into the right situation and emotion, there's even this particular track called 'Talking' which is played when you're conversing with someone, there are four versions of that track, Happy, Sad, Fragile/Calm, Busy and Worried.

Review Conclusion
I really enjoyed LongLong Live The Queen it's unique in its own way and I really love the dialogue-strategy part of it. There's a lot of trial and error involved the game, anything that may seem perfectly harmless maybe opposite in this game, I was skilled strategist in every way, but I was killed by chocolate. I recommend this game to anyone interested in dialogue-strategy or even those interested in royalty, you have an insight of the life of royalty, the risks involved, royal demeanor, internal and foreign affairs, the struggle.
