Regular Price:



England, 1520. As the king or queen of this nation, you've been challenged to out-spend your rival, King Frank, at the Field of the Cloth of Gold. With the help of your staff and sycophants, you might be able to do it. Except you've misplaced your gold all over the castle... time to find all those chests and collect all those taxes! Maybe you'll bankrupt the country, but at least you'll have a good time doing it.


  • 26 royal commands, including (M)arry, e(X)ecute, (C)ollect taxes, (B)less, (K)night, (P)lay Lute and (R)eform Church.
  • Play as King or Queen and rewrite the laws to suit your whim.
  • Non-linear adventure sandbox simulation. Rule your kingdom or wreak havoc in it, as you prefer.
  • Meet Machiavelli, Suleiman the Magnificent, and more, in incredible historical realism.
  • Original music tracks by Visager Music, as well as an adaptation of Henry VIII's masterwork, Pastime in Good Company.
  • A bear. Beware.
