About the Story

The special edition of Wes Lesley's first game, submitted to IFcomp 2015.

This release includes a complete set of the original documentation built-in, allowing anyone to discover all the secrets (provided they don't mind some spoilers).


'The King and the Crown' is a very very very short game where you are the king. The goal of the game is to receive your subjects and end up doing all sorts of boring king stuff like passing judgement, drinking wine and invading France.

But first, you'll need your crown and your scepter! Your crown is in the sturdy locked cabinet behind the throne. Your scepter... well, you must have left it somewhere in the throne room. Probably.

Why is it so short? Because there are many many minuscule actions that alter the flow of the ending. Everything you do and don't do, and when you do or don't do them, will affect how the ending plays out. The future is there for those who seek it out.

For the rest of us, there's a very short game I'd love for you to play.
