What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Errant Kingdom is releasing in an episodic format. We've chosen Early Access status on Steam to make sure this is clear to everyone purchasing the game and because we'll also be making improvements to the game with each chapter/volume update, including things that we take into consideration from listening to user feedback to make the player experience the best it can be.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We hope to finish Errant Kingdom and have all chapters released by late Autumn 2020. Chapters will release individually on a bi-monthly (every two months) basis throughout 2020.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version of Errant Kingdom will have all chapters, mini-games and side-quests available in one go.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently the Prologue of Errant Kingdom is available, with Volume One due to release early-mid March.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price of Errant Kingdom will remain the same during Early Access, but we may participate in Steam sales AFTER the game is complete at the end of 2020. All chapters/volumes will be free downloadable content after the initial cost of $20 for the prologue.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We take user feedback very seriously and look forward to taking on board any suggestions or improvements that we can make to the game to help the experience be the best it can be.”

About This Game

Errant Kingdom is a queer, high-fantasy episodic visual novel (releasing in chapters on a bi-monthly basis throughout 2020) for PC, Mac & Linux, brought to you by Lunaris Games, a tiny team of five indie developers. Our first game, supernatural murder mystery When The Night Comes. is currently #3 on itch.io's top-rated games! Errant Kingdom is our first Unity release.

The Kingdom of Novus has been thrown into disarray, and it's up to you to decide if you’ll help to bring peace, or if you’ll stoke the fires of chaos. Enter a high fantasy world steeped in political intrigue; where magic touches the land and blood turns the wheels unseen. Dishonor & betrayal. Hope & despair. Pick a side, and meet your match.

Errant Kingdom is a story with darker elements at play. As a denizen of the kingdom of Novus, you're at the heart of watching history unfold before your eyes. Whether you see its rise or fall, however, is up to you. There are those who will help you in your endeavors along the way, and might even find themselves enamoured with you. Though, it is also possible to earn their ire should your plans be devious. Only you will influence how the story evolves, and the most important moves to make are yours, and yours alone.

Errant Kingdom features three playable protagonists (with no fixed protagonist portrait, leaving players free to imagine their character as they see fit) and eight potential romance routes (six individual, two polyamorous). You can also play the game without romancing anyone and it will not affect your experience in any way.

The game will be released in volumes on a bi-monthly (once every two months) basis. We plan for there to be a minimum of 5 volumes, each totalling a minimum of 2 hours of playtime across all three routes. Your purchase will give you access to the download of the Prologue and all subsequent Volume updates after this throughout 2020 will be free updates. We have no in-game purchases, and this one-off cost will give you access to a potential 240+ hours of gameplay when taking into account our 8 romance routes, our no romance play-through, and our three different MC roles.

Each play-through has the potential to be vastly different, depending on your choices, your actions, and the way you interact with those around you!

This game is made with Unity.

Features


  • Three unique character routes; The Knight, The Ambassador and The Nomad
  • Six individual romances & two polyamorous romances
  • LGBTQA+ cast
  • Choose your own pronouns
  • Minimum of 12 unlockable CGs per chapter
  • Option to pursue romances without sexual content, or to play without romancing anyone at all
  • Role-specific stats
  • Mini-games

Love Interests


Errant Kingdom has a LGBTQA+ cast of love interests, each with their own unique backgrounds and intertwining stories. You will begin the game as merely an acquaintance, but as the story progresses you will have the chance to spend time with each of them. Eventually, if you choose a romance route, you will become exclusive with one (or two, if polyamorous options are selected) of our love interests, and will gain access to special scenes, CGs, and conversations.

All six love interests are romanceable individually, and our polyamorous relationships are Lucien & Raiden, and Maja & Erik. Roux is asexual, and Livia is demisexual. Our story is linear, so once a romance is selected, you will still interact with all of our other cast members! We're trying to bring an RPG style of gameplay to the Visual Novel world, and this is one of the elements we're most passionate about executing well.
