Hosted Games has a new game for you to play!

Turncoat Chronicle

As the eldest child of the Usurper King, you were always meant to inherit your father’s stolen throne. When the lost heir of the dynasty he ended resurfaces, bent on revenge, you face a difficult choice. Your father’s enemies don’t have to be your own. 

Without allies, the Kidia heir has no hope of taking the throne back, but you could offer them that hope. By allying with his enemy against your father, you could expedite your inheritance and end a dynastic feud, all at once. Always assuming that the vengeful heir is willing to share royal power with you. 

Turncoat Chronicle is a 180,000-word interactive novel by Hazel Gold. It’s entirely text-based, without graphics or sound effects, and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

  • Play as male, female, nonbinary, or genderfluid; gay, straight, bi, asexual, or aromantic. 
  • Befriend your family’s oldest enemy and end a dynastic grudge. 
  • Or, use your wiles to get close to your enemy and secretly plot against them. 
  • Rely on your court connections and diplomatic skills to earn your enemy’s trust. 
  • Recruit a trustworthy ally to act as a royal doppelganger. 
  • Guide your chosen consort as they acclimate to the demands of court life. 
  • Aim for the crown, or pull the strings in secret, behind the scenes. 
  • Plot your father’s downfall by blade or poison. 
  • Or, remain loyal to your father and strive to earn his approval. 
  • Take a chance and trust the one who could betray you, and perhaps even fall in love. 

Either way, your decisions will go down in history! 

Turncoat Chronicle is 33% off until August 10th!

  1. Massive congratulations @Hazel! I’ve been looking forward to this one for a long time :sparkles:

  2. Congratulations, @Hazel ! Your hard work has paid off, and this is your time to shine.

  3. The character makes all the decisions in the narration,

    And then you make a “choice” that might as well have just been the “next” button

    It feels like the MC drives the whole plot without player interference.

  4. Just finished my first route and I gotta say that I was surprised at how few chapters there were but they were all full of some great content. Loved this story when it was. WIP and I’m super happy to see it finished.
