Part text adventure, part tactical game and part time management, Regalia of Men and Monarchs blends all these elements together perfectly.
The bits that could have felt repetitive are broken up by cutscenes and narrative sequences that would fit in a choose your own adventure game book.
The story doesn't take itself seriously but that's ok. There are many references to classic games of the genre (Diablo, Baldur's Gate, Fallout, to name just a few). The humour is tongue in cheek and may not suit everyone's tastes but thematically it is consistent (and will probably make you chuckle if not laugh out loud).
There is a time limit in the game but it never feels punishing. You may not unlock everything in one playthrough but it's never a problem.
Each character comes with his or her own set of skills and unlockable perks. The roster is varied enough so that you will find a set up that will suit your style. You can have a party of six characters but can only deploy a maximum of four (sometimes even less if you want to complete a challenge for extra XP or finish a specific map faster -taking one character can make some challenges and maps a lot easier).
All in all it works pretty well and since extra characters are unlocked progressively you get enough opportunities to familiarise with their skill sets. Skills are activated and come with a cooldown (some of them can be used once every turn or even several times in a row). Characters act following their initiative and you get a resource that fills up at every turn allowing you to trigger a second action or use more advanced (and costly) skills. It's all rather straightforward if you have any experience with tactical turn based games. Considering how the game is designed it's not always easy to determine the line of sight but after a while you get used to it (and there are shortcuts to highlight these even if you can't rotate the camera).
Music and sounds are pretty good. Tracks may not be extremely varied but they don't overstay their welcome which is to be commended. I've found the voice acting to be pretty good and it does a lot to support the story. In fact, I've enjoyed it so much that I've made a soundset for my next BG character based on one of these characters.
The only drawback in an otherwise perfect game is fishing. It's a side activity and it's definitely not mandatory to complete the game but it's a rather annoying minigame in which you have to click and mash your mouse button. That alone would be pretty annoying but there are achievements linked to that activity and to make things even worse it is actually bugged. When I first started playing fishing did work but after a while when I wanted to tick some boxes I realised that the game would hang (basically forcing me to reload). If you're the type of gamer who wants to unlock every achievement it's definitely something to keep in mind.
Lastly saving in this game is limited to safe areas which are your castle or your camp when you're out exploring a dungeon. It's not that bad and if you fail a battle you don't necessarily have to reload since the game will let your restart the entire battle (which means that you can deploy four different characters among your party of six).
All in all I've found this game to be utterly enjoyable. The story was one of its highlights and I liked how it played on some tropes and stereotypes. There are some pretty amusing plot twists and the game does a really good job managing the player's expectations. The battles are short enough and they don't drag out for too long but to get the most of the game you need to be the type of player who can enjoy both a fun tactical setup and an ongoing narrative that keeps pushing you forward.

Solid 7/10. The game is a solid balance between combat and non combat since you can balance your own gameplay however you want by deciding which kingdom quests you do per chapter. The voice acting and characters are hands down my favorite part. Each character has their own developed personality and quirks ie. a vampire who wants to be scary but isn't, but also wants to be a hairdresser, all while throwing on a fake Transylvania accent to seem more vampire like!
This game is def not all about the combat like other tactical games such as Fell Seal or Troubleshooter. It has interesting choices matter text based adventures mixed with real combat in the dungeons, while also having a relationship system that can affect gameplay as well. It was a comfortable blend of genres!

It's like a JRPG version of Pathfinder: Kingmaker.

Great story, unbeliably great humor and unique battle system. Recommended for hardcore RPG players

Review from Steam

The game is good. It looks amazing and it plays well. The characters are unique and feel like they play very differently, which is a good thing. The 2 main points of pain for me is the fishing, which gets extremely boring and communicating with characters. The communication aspect isnt bad, because you get back story and mission from your teammates, but the choice aspect of it, which adds nothing and makes it extremely annoying. Besides these two points this game is fun and great.

Review from Steam

The story is nice, graphics are alright, and the dialogs between characters is funny. Sadly, the management isnt great, very few options, very few to actually manage. It is there, though. Just don't expect a kingdom building sim, it isnt.
