Game release: “Regalia: Of Men and Monarchs” (PC)

If you don’t like your ruling kingdoms games as realistic as Mount & Blade, but prefer anime visuals and tactical RPGs, then Pixelated Milk’s/Klabater‘s Regalia: Of Men and Monarchs might do the trick for you.

If you’ve read my blog entries then you know that anime isn’t featured very prominently here, probably because the games are either too long or that I don’t like the characters/storytelling or big-eyes-drawing style. However, this doesn’t mean that I don’t appreciate the world-building, getting lost in strange lands and (often overdramatic) personal life stories. While this game doesn’t try anything different with its premise of a young man inheriting a kingdom after his father passed away, it’s at least delivered with a good amount of humor.

What’s also interesting to note is that it’s not the typical hero who likes to save a kingdom. He has to rebuild it, if he wants to or not, in order to repay its massive debt. Fighting monsters in turn-based battles with a group of other heroes isn’t the only gameplay mechanic, because one also has to manage towns, diplomacy, and expeditions. Voice acting is over-the-top dramatic, but intentionally so, with some pretty good people involved, while the graphics look sublime with hand-drawn backgrounds and characters.

All in all, this is a title that doesn’t bombard the player with hundreds of hours of level-grinding and long dialogues, so it’s worth checking out even for those who usually avoid JRPGs. The game is out now for PC on both GOG and Steam.
