Ambition: A Minuet in Power is a visual novel/dating sim set in 18th century Paris. The French Revolution is brewing and the players will get to make the most out of the situation.
Kickstarter truly is a wonderful place where anyone can make their dream projects come true. Joy Manufacturing Co. found this out back in late 2017 when they cleared their $60,000 goal and set off on the adventure that is game development.
Four years later, Ambition: A Minuet in Power is available for PC and Mac (via Steam) in exchange for $19.99 – plus a limited time 10 per cent launch discount.
Ambition: A Minuet in Power is set in 18th century Paris. The players will put on an obscenely large wig and start going by "Yvette": a woman of fashion left to fend for herself in Ville De L’amour when her fiancé Armand disappears.
Ville De L’amour and the rest of Paris will offer up a beautiful backdrop to all the romancing, secret collecting and backstabbing Yvette's little black heart desires.
Ambition: A Minuet in Power focuses on learning the secrets of people from all walks of 18th-century life: from priests, all the way to the members of the Bourgeoisie.
The engagement calendar mechanic will allow players to plan out a social life tailored to their ulterior motives.
Capturing the heart of well-connected Parisian nobles will enable Yvette to use their influence to her advantage, climb the social ladder, change the course of political events and get some over-the-top presents.
The secrets can also be sold to the highest bidder but can sometimes turn around and bite the player on the rump.
