which engine was this made in?

Hello, thank you for your message and apologies for the delay. This game was made in Tyranobuilder.

hi. is this game blind accessible?

Hello thank you for taking the time to comment. We created a Royal Duality audio drama due to the game engine that Royal Duality game not being accessible. We have learnt lessons from this, and moving forward all of our games will use an engine that allows for keyboard only access and screen-reader compatability. We are sorry that Royal Duality the visual novel is not accessible, but it's sequel is being developed in a more inclusive engine.

hey, thanks! It's totally fine. Great to see you'll impliment accessibility in future games. If this game is made in unity, then you could maybe try the unity accessibility plugin.

Hello, thanks for your feedback. Unfortunately, we used an engine called Tyranobuilder and whilst I can understand the appeal for first time game devs (as we were when we made the game) - it doesn't have a good level of support in the EN version of the product and it was hard to get help. This is another motivation for us to move to Renpy for our future development. We really do appreciate your comment and hope we can provide all players with more accessible games in the future. 

Loved the care taken into crafting this game! The worldbuilding was quite fun, characters were so endearing, art was great, and the voice acting was a nice touch as well. Nice build-up of intrigue through the mysterious narrator's commentary and meta-narrative. It was also fun figuring out how to get the different endings and side stories too.

All in all, a 5/5 star experience!


Thank you so much for your kind words. We really appreciate hearing from you! 

We're really glad you enjoyed the side stories and endings too! So many costume changes, so little time.

Also, if you enjoyed Royal Duality, it's sequel game will be released soon, with some characters returning. We hope you look forward to that also. 🙇

Thanks again!

Great fun, a charming collection of characters populate this fantasy visual novel adventure. 

The artwork is beautifully rendered and the different character’s personalities are nicely defined. The actors providing the various voices have also done an exceptional job.

There is humour and mystery but be careful as a bad decision will turn things decidedly dark!

This is the first release from the Hyakuten Games team and I look forward to their next game.

Highly recommended.
