Degica Games and developer KOGADO Studio are proud to announce the release of a classic visual novel on Steam (available right now), remastered for the modern age and presented in English for the very first time: Palais de Reine!
Diplomatic queen simulation + medieval fantasy romance in one, Palais de Reine sees Filia, heir to the Tableronde name, set to inherit the throne after her father’s untimely passing… until the lords of the surrounding lands all proclaim her too weak, frail, and sheltered to possibly take up the mantle of governance.
Led on this treasonous path by the influential Councilor Diektor, who seeks to take the heir-apparent’s hand in marriage so he can usurp the power for himself, Filia is given one year to prove her worthiness of the crown and the legacy it represents.
To do this, she must recruit knights to do her bidding, and engage in diplomatic relations with a number of neighboring lands — some openly hostile.
Choose four nobles to help you lead your country to prosperity, showing all who doubted you just how wrong they were… or, let your heart betray you, and take one as your consort.
The fate of the kingdom, and all it represents, lies in your hands! What kind of queen will you be?
Defend Your Birthright
As the sole remaining direct descendant of the hallowed King of Knights, your destiny is to unite the divided kingdoms and bring all to bear under the flag of the honorable Tableronde name. The catch is, few are willing to entrust their affairs to a sheltered princess thrust into a position of rule with no training and no forewarning… Summon Your Loyalists Choose four nobles to aid your campaign from a wide variety of candidates, including a devoted childhood friend with little tact or knowledge but an excess of heart, a dark elven diplomat from a sequestered land with questionable motives, and even a wolfman unaccustomed to the ways of the human world…

Discover Your Soulmate
Tableronde can be left without a proper ruler for only a year before opportunists would swoop in to fill the void of power, so that’s precisely how long Filia is given to either take the throne through decisive action, or accept the marriage proposal of the lecherous Councilor Diektor and pass all her authority to him. Or, perhaps, if she herself is unwilling to take on these duties, there may be another, more worthy knight to inherit them through a marriage founded upon true love? It’s up to you to determine if, and how, your power is to be distributed… and whether to strive for personal happiness, historic leadership, or the ultimate dream of both…
