About the Story
Gonzague is an interactive fiction game made with Twine, based on the novel Le Bossu by Paul Féval. It is a court intrigue and swashbuckling story set in early 18th-century France. The game has two versions: one rated 16+ for violence and suggestive content and another rated 18+ for explicit content.
You are the Prince de Gonzague, a title you acquired thanks to your ruthless ways. Your bloody past haunts your every step and you have taken measures to ensure a prosperous future as well as put away your blades and poisons for good.
You have made some rich and powerful friends in the persons of Philippe de Nevers and the King’s nephew. Now you just need money. Thankfully, the marriage you have arranged with the Marquis de Caylus’s daughter should provide you with the fortune you need.
Unless some unexpected revelations put your plans in peril…
- Play as the villain of your story and live with the consequences of your terrible deeds.
- Choose your gender, pronouns, and appearance.
- Make choices that will put you on the path of redemption — or damnation.
- Make friends, enemies, or lovers throughout your tribulations.
