the empty kingdom

Who will you fight when there is no one to fight and who will you love when there is no one to love? A new Daniel Merlin game: the empty kingdom.

I enjoyed this, but it was incredibly short. Perhaps that was the point? Thanks for sharing it with us, Bart. :)

That was very nice indeed. I think it might have been more challenging if you actually had to choose when and where to use your items. Lovely graphics and sound effects.

Frankly, I thought it was a bit lame. Beautiful and artistic, but not a lot of meat to it. Unusual interface, which I enjoyed. Meh.

I liked it a lot better the second time through, once I figured out that it wasn't a setup for a jump scare or anything like that.

Nice short story/game.

Interesting and unique ^^

hmmmm, i don't know really what i should think about it. The graphic-style is nice. But before i realized that i'm not clicking through the "story-intro" I was already half through the game :D

How exquisitely beautiful....I loved it. So creative, imaginative and breathtakingly beautiful. Thankyou

Unique and beautiful. Simple but engaging. As someone already mentioned, it would have made it more interactive if the player got to choose when to use an item. Loved the story.

Very cool!

As art, I give it an A. As a game, I give it a D.

When I started playing this, I immediately thought, this is exactly like Icarus Needs. Don't know if this is the same game maker or not, but the whole idea is almost exactly the same. Icarus Needs was funnier, though, because there was actually text.

Nice, but too short. A bit like Icarus Needs, which was fantastic.
