OK. I'm not in the habit of writing reviews or comments, but this game just triggered a whirlpool of thoughts and emotions. English is not my native tongue, so I apologise for any possible mistakes or crooked language, it's a work in progress =) Overall, I think, the game is very well made.

The art style is just singular and you can really imagine how all these characters would look like irl. It's a breath of fresh air amidst anime-style visual novels, which look too much alike.
Music is nice, pleasant, not too distracting from the story and relays the atmosphere of the age.

Despite shortness of the novel, the characters are incredibly well developed. Even though a woman's life at court felt like getting in a viper's nest, where any careless move could be fatal, after the first playthrough I've realized that I really like the female cast: silly, naive Agnes and strong, cunning and surprisingly honest Margaret. And Henry is... wow... So not very sharp and full of himself. I guess a lifetime of endless flattery and everyone's hypocrisy would do that. Oh well, in the end I managed to stab Cromwell and smother the king and escape with my life. :D Though my favorite ending is where he dies naturally.

Thank you so much for the dedication to all those women, whose lives were cut short and whose stories were never told. I'm not into history, but there are a lot of novels, movies and games inspired by the Tudors era, so you end up learning bits and pieces. And it's so sad to see how men of power used to percieve women mostly as tools for establishing their families position, forging political alliances or simply producing heirs. The game relays the hopelessness of their situation vividly.
