Each guard had such a distinct, lovable personality and I love them all. The backgrounds and character art were lovely, and the only real gripe is Koroviȼ's dialogue color! Such unique and fun character designs, too. Amazing game!
The Palace Guard
A downloadable game for Windows and macOS
Following a corruption scandal, Koroviȼ is being transferred to the Palace District. There, he accompanies three guards on their patrols and over the course of a few days, becomes closer with them.
The game features 3 guards you can get to know over the course of 3 days, and just shy of 10,000 words of dialogue.
Made in a month for the yaoi game jam 2017 by a bunch of folk who didn't know what they were doing. It may not be perfect, but we did our best.

DAAW. This was extremely cute! I did all the routes and I'd say my favorite was Roswell's cos he's a blushing cutie that swears. Adel's route was nice and I relate to her on some level (the anxiety around people). Haven is a sweetheart. And I have to say Captain DeWilde is an amazing side character as well. Quite short, though! But all in all, lovely artsy, cutesy game :)
Although the color of the dialog for Korovic is a bit of inconvenience for me and Haven-Korovic expression sometime remind me to some BL cliche (pardon my dirty mind :'D ),
this overall is such a loveable encounter of each palace guards, each with their own background+motivation and how that brighten up Korovic from his past (although explained as piece by piece from each routes) and move on.
And thanks so much for that pause before ending's name, giving enough time and room to screenshot the romantic scene cleanly ^^
This was really cute!! I enjoyed playing it :)
How dare you make something so cute?!
Haha, sorry, I had to! To be honest, I only did Roswell's ending so far because I fell in love with him the moment I saw him, but it was so damn cute! Of course it's short and simple, but it's a lovely little game that made me smile a lot. I'll have to try out the other endings at some point.
And I must say I LOVE the art. The style is very pretty and quite unique, not to mention the very original character designs.
For such a short game made in a month, it's really worth playing, so congrats!
