Minor Update (Oct 2017)

No major content updates in this build, but some noticeable changes:

- The 'Endings List' button on the options menu should now work correctly again and allow you to view what endings you have and haven't seen, and whether or not Callum's route is locked.
- The key decision point for starting Callum's route will now be visible even if you have not yet unlocked his route. The choice will appear, but grayed out, and marked 'Locked'.

These changes should hopefully make it more clear to new players that the route exists, but can't be reached until another alliance has been completed, rather than leaving them thinking that they're just doing something wrong.

- For this edition, we are now bringing forward 'The Confines Of The Crown' to serve as the game's main title. We think this will better position the game to be appreciated by new players. (Also, the title+subtitle was awkwardly long and kept messing up the advertising.)

It is apparently not possible to change logos on Steam trading cards after they have been issued, so those will continue to display the original edition's title of 'The Royal Trap', and the combined logo will remain on the store page. We hope that in the long run this will lessen confusion rather than increase it.

“The Royal Trap's strength is in its replay value. Not merely in hunting down all the endings to its many romances, but also in filling in all the pieces of its multilayered mystery. Each path will really only give you a few bits rather than the full story, and some have entire sequences you'll never see that will drastically change how you look at the story itself and other characters.”

About This Game

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...



A visual novel of romance and royal intrigue. With the succession at stake, who can you trust? Your choice of alliances will shift the story and bring you to fifteen different possible endings.

Can Madeleine break free from the social obligations that keep her trapped and helpless, or will she be led into an even more dangerous trap of royal making?
