In this kingdom management RPG, petitioners will arrive in the throne room each turn to ask for your advice and assistance. Decide whether to help them with their problems, or to conserve resources for more important matters. Remember: supplies are limited, and not everyone has the kingdom’s best interests at heart... Listen to petitioners each turn and decide who needs your support. Aid your family with their personal problems and decide upon their fate. Hire Generals, Witches and Hunters to aid your efforts. Prepare for battle and make alliances by satisfying the whims of lords and kings. Follow the stories of the quirky and determined characters that visit your halls. Yes, Your Grace tells a tale of Davern, a medieval kingdom ruled by King Eryk. The game is set in a fictional world where monsters and arcane practices inspired by Slavic folklore are the order of the day. Villagers will ask for your help with various problems, from monsters attacking the village to a lack of places to relax and enjoy themselves. Some will bring humour to your throne room and some will present you with difficult choices. Your family is important too, and throughout your time as King, you will have to support them in their struggles. You will face lords with a variety of personalities; you will need their support in order to win an upcoming battle, but some may ask you to perform dirty deeds to cement the alliance. One thing is clear: It won’t be easy to keep everyone happy...

I have never been so glad I decided to let a child keep a bear as a pet.

Review from Steam

In this game you play as a king, who will have to face hardships.
Pros:
The overall management is fun.
some decision might cause very unexpected results.
The game is done with a sense of humor.
Cons.
The game has a very big bad side which isn't hard to notice at first. Although it seems you have decisions, some of major decisions are forced and ruin the replayability,
To sum up: Its a fun game that makes you sweat on some decisions, however has a very low replayabilty.

It's very rare I make reviews for games, however Yes, Your Grace hasn't gotten the attention I think it deserves. For context, I went into this game completely blind; it was in a bundle with The Life and Suffering of Sir Brante, and Suzerain, which were both games I'd been interested in, so thought "why not".
I'd read no guides, seen no videos, and I've finished the only run I'll ever do in 7 hours.
The important bits first:
- How long to finish the game? * I beat the whole thing in almost exactly 7hrs.
- Is there replayability? * Depends; I'd say no once you've got an ending you're satisfied with unless achievement hunting.
- Is it worth the cost? * Ehhh... I'd say maybe. I really enjoyed it, but I can understand it won't be everyone's thing.
- Is the music fire? * The Music Is Fire.
Yes Your Grace, at its core, is a "choices matter" resource management game. With many people within your kingdom in need of your help, but war with an overwhelmingly powerful foe on the horizon, its your job to try and provide stability and security for yourself, your family, and your kingdom. To that end, the general storyline is set in stone - you will either fail or succeed. However the fates of individual characters, and how you arrive at your ending, are the bits that can be affected. I got what I would consider to be almost the perfect ending on my first go, but there were still plenty of times where I figured I was very close to losing outright.
Resource management is not too difficult, but you can still be caught out by poor choices - spend your gold on one village, you may not have enough for another, and if you give to someone undeserving expect to see no benefit at all; there's a loan system from the bank if you need help, but those weekly fees start to get real annoying; things like that. You're essentially trying to prepare for the worst at all times, but if you neglect any one area for too long then you're going to be in trouble regardless.
Criticisms of the game for me were the lack of transparency in some mechanics; inventory items have no description so it's hard to know what happens when you use them, or indeed when they can be used - know that items may have multiple occasions when they could be useful, but each one pretty much only does one thing. The "archives" menu too, which acts as your quest tracker, is sometimes missing important bits of information which can make it difficult to remember what exactly you need to do at certain points - the fact that you can't open it during dialogue is especially frustrating, and punishes heavily not playing the game in one sitting.
There are also some elements that can feel frustratingly forced upon you, but I feel it's the game trying to say "immerse yourself into the character of the king, don't approach it like you're a player who can just reload with no consequences". Forcing yourself not to reload can be difficult, but trust me when I say that most minor mistakes can be recovered from, and the game's best played when every decision feels tense - it forces you to pick choices that can feel immoral because you just can't guarantee that your greater objectives will be safe if you don't.
I don't want to spoil anything, but I'll say that overall my experience with this game was one of increasing stress and tension right up until the achievements popped up informing me of the final outcome; the rush of relief and joy that came from the positive conclusion of seven hours of careful management for a situation I never felt quite prepared for was enough to make me want to leave this review. Yes, Your Grace excellently captures that feeling of escalating tension, without ever making you feel quite hopeless enough to give up, nor quite comfortable enough to relax.

This game was finished by me few weeks ago on 100%. I can say next:
- This game has an exciting atmosphere. In my fist game experience, I believed in reality of this imagine world, I didn’t want to looking for shortcomings and find fault with plot or gameplay.
- Well-spelled out characters. This is a miracle! But I can mention all the main characters in this game even after few weeks. Really, it’s amazing, sometimes in the modern films with million-dollar budgets, characters spelled out worse. They have motivation, logic, they are alive, despite they look like picture from squares.
- Perfect soundtracks, for the level of this game of course. Music in this game plays an important role, in most situations and creates the right atmosphere of the Middle-Ages, but where it’s needed more drama or more sorrow, in this case you will be surprised.
- Interesting story. Yeah… except end of the story.... I can’t say more guys but this is facepalm, everything else is good, keeping the intrigue, unexpected turns, simple and kind inference, I think it’s very important now.
Game problem:
- If you want interesting gameplay, go away because it is not your game. All our gameplay this is walking and making a decision but this interesting only like part of the main story and very boring like the independent element.

Thank you for reading.
Have a good day

Review from Steam

What a pleasure this game was. I never would've expected I'd get such a kick out of it, but here I am, filled to the brim with enjoyment and overwhelmed with emotions.
At first glance I thought this game would be like a Papers, Please! or a Not Tonight knock-off, but oh boy wasn't I just so far from the truth. The only similarity I ever found is whether you agree or not to people's demands, but that is still quite different.
But anyways, coming back, I can't tell you how invested I got the more I played it, the story was really well made and you can actually somewhat feel what Eryk the King of Davern (you), goes through. And not to mention sometimes you'll actually scratch your head and really think over which action should you take in certain situation if you want to prevail and also not go bankrupt or make the people hate you and also keeping your family safe. This is what makes this game so immersive, besides the story and the events. It's amazing feeling like a king and also feeling the stress and burden of a king.
Now saying all of that, there's not to say this game is perfect, far from it actually. The fact that most of your actions or decision only decide minor outcomes and those outcomes don't even really matter in the end it's infuriating, really. There's around 2-3 actions/decision that from what I know change the outcome of the endings which is quite disappointing considering this is what this game is all about, and some of those actions or dialogues don't give you much options sometimes.
It's still a very good game and I'd recommend anyone because I definitely enjoyed it a whole lot and I bet a lot more people will, but I really would've wanted to see that your choices would matter a little bit more, even at the cost of the quality of the story, cas I feel this what the main centre of attention is but it's a bit lackluster in some situation.
Overall I really loved this game I will continue to play it so I can see the other endings as well. Super Awesome!

Review from Steam

Buy, if you'd enjoy a 9 hour interactive story about ruling a kingdom.
In my opinion it's a nicely crafted story worth the time and money.
Little to no replay-value, since you know the plot on your second playthrough.
I can ease your mind if you are on the edge due to some negative reviews saying that your choices don't matter in the end (spoilerfree):
they made it so that your out of scope decissions dont converge into the same ending (unlike the mass effect 3 ending), but rather present the consequences to you in additional blobs of text at the end of the game. These dont have any ingame consequences, but leave you satisfied knowing what happened with that. After your first playthrough you have some knowledge of what will happen, so even though you could get different endings, the replay value is limited.

Review from Steam

This game is a joy to play, a largely narrative based RPG/Management type of game where you are running a kingdom with excellent writing, characters, and some solid branching
