A Minuet in Power Review

Play OverviewPlay Overview

Ambition: A Minuet in Power (2021) is a text adventure that offers a historical twist on the dating game genre. You play a young woman far from home, abandoned by the love of her life in the city of Paris. Rather than sorrow or shame, this ignites ambition for her to seek her own passions, as France marches towards a violent uprising that will change history forever. It's a game about trust, betrayal and using your wiles to get what you need, while the world clock ticks toward revolution.

Play involves exploring the city and twisting social politics of pre-revolutionary Paris. Unlike other adventures of this kind, it's designed to be played multiple times. Each time you do, the world is significantly different. This means you need to use your wits to court, snub and seduce your way to the top of society as it is rendered in each play through.

As you progress you extend your influence, uncover the intrigue of the coming revolution, and ensure that you end up on the winning side of history. You attend parties, mingle with the rich and powerful, learn their secrets, and use this to get the wealth and power you deserve.

The city is a living breathing world, so you need to use your calendar to plan commitments and capitalise on the right pacts to get where you need to be before the revolution arrives. Each choice you make has intended (and unintended) consequences. Sell the gossip you hear earns money but may undermine your credibility or security.
