A great adaptation of the "Reigns" genre, with a nerdy touch, and in a room.

Beautiful title screen, moody music. And wow, really solid and consistent art style! <3

Even has a bit of storytelling.

Very happy I had the chance to play this one :) Thanks for making it!

Beautiful graphics, but the sound effects don't fit with them at all. Overall, pretty cool game. :)

I see what you did there about taking Fun out of the voting criterias :P

To whoever is reading this, SPOILER ALERT AHEAD PLEASE DON'T READ MORE IF YOU HAVEN'T PLAYED THE GAME YET!!!!

SPOILER!!!

Okay so that was interesting, the "game" portion seemed really really pointless, I didn't really see any cause and effect, and the only point of feedback was a number - your gold, and a little face changing colour. I couldn't tell what achieved what, so I literally ended up clicking everything. All the time.

Then the rest of the game was an interesting "twist", though I don't have any solid idea of what it means - though that's kinda cool. I enjoyed that, laughing like an idiot at the end.

Smart, really doesn't pull through together. A for effort, and pretty graphics :)

I would have liked diagonal movement to follow the orthagonal movement direction, it felt a bit off the way it was now, broke the illusion for me.

Hmm, not sure what's going on, but my actions don't seem to have much effect and there doesn't seem to be much point to any of them. Maybe i'm missing something?
Nice artwork.

Really liked the look of this game! The gameplay seems a bit broken though, since I don't really know if anything I do have any effects except for the gold part.

Overall it was good, it was somewhat confusing and I still don't really understand it. The graphics were alright, the sound pretty good. Nice entry

Pretty good, great length for a jam game too. Some of the graphics are a bit glitched (going through doors for example). I didn't like having to switch between mouse and keyboard, although I guess you have to for the computer stuff, the interacting stuff that required click probably didn't need it.

I love the visual style you have going here. The font really sells it. I wasn't expecting the ending, that was a fun twist. I did run into a bugs, but nothing game breaking. Just a few layering issues and having the computer continue to respond after the 25k pop up was there. Overall, it's a really solid entry. Nice job!

I just pressed all of the buttons whenever they were off cooldown and pressed "yes" to every question. My gold kept climbing and the face stayed happy. Being a king is easy!

Really nice graphics, the "isometric" text was hard to read but also kind of cool so I'm not sure how to feel about it.

I liked the explanation of why the king stays in the room, clever take on the theme! Overall, pretty solid for a compo entry!
