"Love the King." Chapter 2 is here!


"An old magician once told me our dreams might show our deepest desires or our worst fears, but never the future. 

To see the future, she said, one needs to close their eyes to life and time.

One needs to see the threads weaving our reality as cords that have no endings or beginnings, only infinite bifurcations.

We, she said, are a tangle of always-changing possibilities that multiply after our every choice.

After how your conversation with Mathias ended last night, you might be thinking that spending the day as his shadow-and-protector will be slightly uncomfortable. But when two known faces reappear in your life, hellbent to test your patience and, maybe, your future King, "uncomfortable" doesn't even begin to cover it.

It's time for your Guard—your very own Dragon Commander—to start seeing just how much their past choices shaped their present.

Meet new characters, learn more about your Guard, see which new sides Mathias will offer you in exchange, and remember... it's time to Love the King.


Hello, everyone!

Ligia here, bringing you the second chapter of "Love the Guard, Be the King." As always, if you have any questions or if you find any bugs/typos, please let me know! :3~ I added some links to my tumblr/twitter in the menu screen, so I think it'll be easier to find me now hehe. <3

From the bottom of my heart, thank you all for the more than 1000 downloads. It's a ton; I wasn't expecting it ç-ç <3 A huge, special thank you to all of you who rated/shared, and donated for the game. I hope you have fun with this chapter too. 

I'd LOVE to know your thoughts, all right? I'll be here, quietly wishing you all enjoy this second chapter just as much (or even more) than the first! ;)

Also, please note this chapter has some heavy(ier?) sexual innuendos in this chapter, so... yeah. There's that xD

I hope you all have fun!

First of all – thanks for posting questions because they make writing a review a lot easier. This chapter was fantastic; totally worth the wait, and even better than the first IMO (which is not to say the first chapter was bad. This chapter was just that good). I especially appreciated all the several variations, even if they were just a handful of lines, based on my choices. I know that takes a certain amount of work and I really appreciate it.

+ The new sprites! Did you like them?

Yes! Especially liked seeing the Queen :) Her sprite was just how I imagined her! 

+ Mandra and Curio. >8)

I liked Mandra a lot! Complex relationships are the best.

+ The new colored Illustration + the B&W CGs

Loved both! My favorite colored illustration is the one where the guard is holding the king's face back.

+ What was your favorite and least favorite part?

Least favorite: Nothing. Genuinely.

Favorite: I don't really know how to call each route, but the first one I played was with a really resentful and angry guard who ended up asking the king to stay. I was pretty sure nothing could top that for me but then I played the route where the king and guard have a more sexually tense relationship (I don't know how else to put it) and where the chapter ends by the king saying the guard should try harder or else the king'll get bored of the game. That's just – it's a sort of dynamic I love but never really see written and it's so wild to read a story and get exactly what I want from it. 

+ The animations A_A' I'm so nervous about them. Still not sure if they fit the game or not.

They worked for me!

Loved the new update! I will definitely be doing multiple play throughs this weekend to see all the new material. Keep up the great work! 

I'm so glad you liked it! Thanks for playing. I hope you have fun in the other routes too <3

Saw the new update and got SO EXCITED. You've done so well; the YEARNING. I LOVE IT SO MUCH.

+ The new sprites! Did you like them?

So much! I adored seeing the Queen and the Doctor.

+ Mandra and Curio. >8)

Mandra is a brat, I love them. Curio is interesting, I can't wait to learn more about him!

+ The new colored Illustration + the B&W CGs

LOOOOOVEEE. 

+ What was your favorite and least favorite part?

There was no least favorite part, just some slight confusion when it came to Mandra. I misunderstood them as an enemy at first, but now I understand there may some complicated feelings due to shared trauma. 

+ The animations A_A' I'm so nervous about them. Still not sure if they fit the game or not.

I really liked the animations! It made the scenes a little more personable - especially when MC was drifting off, and Matt was like "uh HELLO?!"

-

I can't wait to see more from you! I eagerly await each update. <3

Thank you so much for playing and for your comment! I'm glad you liked the update <3

Mandra is definitely complicated, and I wanted people to feel a little uncertain about them (there's even a couple of choices that <insert spoilers here> xD hahaha), but I'm really glad you also noticed part of the reason behind that! *-* 

Thank you again <3
