Opening Video

Description: Madeleine Valois is a prince's companion. Her job is to guide and advise him, to make him look good so that he can land a royal bride. It is her responsibility to keep him out of trouble - not to let him walk blindly into a political minefield, not to let him get arrested for a crime he didn't commit, and definitely not to let him fall in love with her. Unfortunately, events are not going according to plan...

Background: The Royal Trap is a visual novel released by Hanako Games earlier this year. It is completely in English, and features four main character routes, with a total of fifteen different endings. It can be purchased online for $19.95, or, if you complete the promotional offer, $14.95.

Opinion: This is quite possibly the best otome game I've ever played. It is SO refreshing to have a heroine who actually feels like a character, instead of just a piece of card board. This game does so many things differently from the average otome game, but I feel as though they all work in its favor. If you haven't checked out The Royal Trap yet, you really should.

Lol, you didn't like his ending?

I was definitely...surprised...to say in the least. But after I gave it some thought, I decided to give kudos to Hanako Games for doing something outside of the box.

And...

...crap, I don't know how to create a spoiler box...

Without the periods.

And yeah, I was pissed, I felt more like they went in too deep into the story then just decided to end it with that.

Spoiler:
I agree with you there. I felt that Nazagi's route ended really suddenly. You spent so much time in the dungeon, and then more time in bed, and then, when you are finally up and moving around, the game ends.

I think the three-way relationship works, though, because the game is made up of matriarchal societies, as opposed to the typical patriarchal of our world. For a man to have two wives in our world, there would be implications of them being submissive to him, and the man ruling the family. But in the game, Madeleine and Cassidy are actually elevated above Nazagi socially, so for him to be in relationship with both of them, it feels more as though they are sharing him, instead of him owning both of them? I don't know if that made sense...

Also, Nazagi is marrying Cassidy for political purposes. With Cassidy's innocence to the subject of love, as well as her "situation", they probably aren't sharing a bed, let alone each other's hearts. Madeleine is the one in a romantic relationship with Nazagi. At least, that's how I came to understand the atmosphere of the ending.

Is this game really that good? I bought it on Friday because a friend recommended it but I haven't had the chance to play because school takes priority.

Now I'm looking forward to being able to sit down and play this. Heheh~.

This is a refreshing game. Just courtroom mystery and intrigue without magic. The heroine thankfully has a likeable personality.

The Royal Trap is definitely a game that all otome lovers should play at some point. smile
It has a tough heroine who can kick butt when needed and a great intriguing set of characters and plot twist. :queen:

I bought it, but I'm still not that far in the game. It's really good so far though! I actually like the heroine in this one. Haha.

I have to admit it, Madeleine really is one of my favourite heroines compared to most other otome heroines Ladida 

Spoiler:
Especially how she takes such decisive actions and the way in which she's a lot like a motherly character or even Oscars Onee-sama XD
She's such a strong heroine that its a bit unusual considering how most heroines are not as capable of protecting themselves and end up getting trapped or kidnapped or something (I'm not mentioning any names wink )

Its a really good game though, I really enjoyed playing it but just...ugh Nazagi ending mou~

Still haven't finished playing it, but this far, I really loved Callum's anding and looking forward to Oscar's ending. (I'm keeping him for last because he sounds like the true ending, right ?)

For a 20$ game, it's still too short !! So~ I don't recommend you to put your money in it. There are games far more worth it, and cheaper that you can buy.

So I eventually tried them all and I chose Callum's route by far~

His route is epic, fun and romantic, while the other's are only one of this imo.
Oscar is sweet but gets boring,
Caspian is cut but lacks manliness,
Gaston is funny but gets bothersome,
Nazagi is... a jerk with a rushed romance.

But Callum~ Ô my Callum~ is just perfectly balanced. May be it has to do with the fact that I played his route first ?

Anyway, 100pots for his character and story.
