werupenstein's Long Live the Queen (PC) review

Avatar image for werupenstein


It's one of those games that you end up with through some bundle deal or Steam sale that I wouldn't normally go looking for but for some reason I keep coming back to this one.

I've never played a game quite like this before, it seems really simple at first then the game throws a bunch of curve balls at you and then you are dead; over and over and over again.

It was fun learning the traps and how to avoid them as I progressed through the story.

The branching story was most impressive, it really feels like a very different experience each time you play, it's almost like this game is the answer for the complaint most people have with Telltale games; the choices actually matter here and things you do early in the game can have a massive impact on how you progress even in late game.

Not really a big fan of the aesthetic, it was well done, just not for me.

I found that managing my mood against where I put my points was fun, and I felt that the story within was compelling enough that I spent a weekend playing.That said, Long Live the Queen is not a particularly deep g...
