Devolver Digital Launches Kingdom Management Game Reigns on Mobile

The game sees players become monarchs who must respond to requests and keep the peace in their kingdoms.

Devolver Digital announced the release of Reigns on iOS and Android. Developed by Nerial, the game sees players become monarchs who must respond to requests and keep the peace in their kingdoms.

In Reigns, players receive one request or story card at a time, and they can swipe left or right to make a decision or choose a response for each card. As users make decisions, the balance between the game’s four factions will shift. For example, one decision may make the military happy while at the same time decreasing the kingdom’s treasury.

Users can slowly swipe in either direction without letting go to see how a decision will affect the four factions. Players must maintain balance between the four factions to continue ruling.

Over time, users may make decisions with negative consequences, and some decisions may lead to the end of their current rule. Each time a king is removed from power, players can begin the game again with a new king. Players will receive a different assortment of request and story cards in each game.

Finally, players can complete quests as they progress, which may ask them to have an heir or recruit a doctor for their kingdoms, as examples. Users may unlock additional story and request cards as they complete quests.

Reigns is available to download for $2.99 on the iTunes App Store and Google Play.
