I must be doing something wrong, but I can't work out what. I get the splash screen and when I click on 'New Game, the button flashes, but that's all that happens, even if i wait for ages.

Best, Tao

Not sure if you mean "click" literally, but the game doesn't have mouse support. Use Z to start the game, and there are more controls listed in the Readme file.

That might explain it :).

I did go through the readme, but it didn't make a lot of sense. Now you have given me the key, possibly I will understand it next time I read it.

Best,

I wanted to donate some money to Sierra's patreon but you need a linked credit card with your paypal before you can use patreon, so perhaps in the future somewhere, I see you're earning quite a lot already though :p

If you ever need something translated to Dutch, feel free to contact me aquablovic@gmail.com

Regardless I've been playing this game 3 times over now and I'm really impressed, it doesn't really do anything as a an actual erotic game but the concept and story is just so intriguing it doesn't really matter, I still enjoy every minute of it. The only remark I'd have is that the final battle right now - Riala - is really easy. I've been completing all the optional sidebosses as well and compared to for example the final mage exam the Riala fight is too easy, not satisfying at all. I like saving before a fight and trying a few times with different setups until I can beat the enemy but for riala all I had to do was spam spacebar and the basic attacks can take her out.

Anyways, great game, I hope you can keep developing this game, and others, with your fulltime commitment. You're really at the frontier of adult games at the moment. Good luck.


EDIT: another little criticism I have is that I find the options given on Varia and Altina pretty confusing, perhaps you could word it differently? Perhaps it's just because English isn't my native tongue but the first time I played I accidently made Varia a mindless cocksleeve instead of restoring her personality as I intended. Instead of 'reshape' and 'dominate' (this is off of the top of my head, could be inaccurate), perhaps something like 'restore old personality' and 'keep her as a cocksleeve' would be more suitable.

Well, you're the writer, I'm sure you could come up with something better as me.. If you think this is just an issue with my limited comprehensibility instead of vague wording feel free to ignore this suggestion.

Oh, is that so? I didn't realize it had that limitation. Well, I do have commercial work that doesn't require a credit card, if you want to support... XP

I'm sorry you found Riala too easy, I had a hard time balancing her. The main issue is that I want every required battle in the game to be winnable even by a minimum level party - I have a "worst possible" save I test on every version for this. Sometimes, I just can't beat a boss with my weakest party and have to tone it down. However, the upcoming version has some optional challenges that I hope will interest you!

Thanks for all your kind words! I'm still amazed that I've been able to do this full time, so I hope to finish everything I've started and keep building up to bigger things!

You're not the only person who has said this was unclear. The upcoming version actually has some slightly changed dialogue that I hope will improve this. A lot of people playing have English as a second or later language, so I do try to be as clear as possible.

Version 0.29.0 has been released to patrons! This is another extra large release that covers the end of the war through the end of the chapter, so it has quite a bit of content!

The war events will culminate in the assault on the Incubus Emperor's home base, a large dungeon that forces your party to split into three groups:
Image

And so you'll finally arrive at the screen you saw two years ago, in the very first first version of the game, to fight the enemy introduced in the beginning:
Image

But of course by now you understand that just defeating one enemy doesn't save the world. No, there's a complicated political situation surrounding the conflict. You're going to have to deal with that situation, which will vary widely depending on your choices up to this point:
Image

There are several pieces of the war I haven't spoken about, either. But I'll just leave you with a glimpse of one of the challenge battles this update:
Image

Though there are a lot of events going on, expect to be able to spend some time catching up with your harem, too:
Image

This update includes not just the end of the war, but all the aftermath and scenes leading up to the next section of the game:
Image

That includes an entire round of investing - yes, you'll get new ProN returns. Depending on your choices, you'll have different options that will get you an early advantage on the next cycle of investing:
Image

And of course, it's all leading up to this:
Image

Right now, I need to focus fully on bugfixing and balancing this version. There's a lot to do, and the whole war may need tweaking, so this may be another two week wait for the public version. But once I have a little more space to breathe, I'll be making a post about what the rest of the game will look like, a roadmap to the ending.

The Last Sovereign is not almost done... but we're definitely closer to the end than the beginning. Thanks to everyone for supporting me this far, and I intend to keep providing the game all the way to the conclusion!

Re: The Last Sovereign [Updated 9/8 - CHAPTER COMPLETE!]

Postby Sierra Lee » Fri, 17Sep08 23:30

The newest version of TLS is now publicly available, now much more polished! Check it out at the blog:
https://the-last-sovereign.blogspot.com ... lease.html

Version 0.29.3
- Reviewing the entire war, there have been a number of tweaks to improve the overall balance.
- Though I kept the reduced reserves, I made the instability penalties less punishing. In theory this will nudge games away from both extremes.
- The results of the investments have changed in multiple ways. They are generally more beneficial to the player, so you may want to replay the very end.
- Thanks to Decanter, we have an edited chapter four title card. Now hopefully more people will read it right at first glance.
- Riala's sex skills have been given new animations and slightly rebalanced.
- The usual bugs, typos, and polishing.

This version concludes the war and chapter three! I'm very happy to have finally reached this point and I hope everyone enjoys the release!

Hey guys! Unfortunately, I made a few mistakes in the last version that lead to some of the hidden variables being not quite right. Most of these are impossible to notice unless you're opening game files, but one could potentially give you much worse results than you should be getting. New 0.29.4 links and more info in the post:
https://the-last-sovereign.blogspot.com ... lease.html

Meanwhile, there's also a free preview of my visual novel, Crimson Gray, available on Newgrounds:
http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/699069

So if you wanted to give it a try, feel free! And if you think the game is worth it, I wouldn't mind a rating or review, either.

When I check on Friday afternoon and didn't see anything, I thought maybe it'll be another week for public release. I'm so happy I was wrong and I caught this before the weekend was over. Cant wait to see how the war concludes. So excited!!

Uh... surprise? I didn't plan on doing another TLS update before my side project, but I ended up working on it and so I released a chunk just now. 

Rather than focusing on story, this update introduces a first for the game: a heavily customizable home base. You can expand new rooms, upgrade various systems, and so on, but that includes cosmetic customization. Here's how the same room looks with different choices:
(Too large to embed: https://i.imgur.com/Xs0DOIb.png)

Each element is controlled individually via a control room. Phew, this thing took a bit of work:
Image

It's not all mechanics, though: you'll be able to reconnect with members of your harem, see some of what's happened during the break between chapters, and see the setup for chapter four.
Image

Yarra is excited, anyway:
Image

I'm not sure about a public release for this one. It will depend on how many changes I make based on patron feedback and how soon I think the next update will be. See everybody then!

I'm finally up to date... such a long and complex game, I love it! But I definitely need to do a second playthrough, I'm not happy with how some things went down.

I have a question as well. I saved my game on the (I believe it is) placeholder for the beggining of chapter 4, will I lose my save when that place gets replaced with the actual beggining of the chapter?

Nah, you'll be fine. You just have to make sure to move the save file to the updated game when you download it.

That's right - I try hard to keep all saves compatible! Saving on the final screen is actually good, because if there are changes or something needs a fix, I often include them on that screen.

No CGs yet. Though I would still like to get an artist to illustrate everything, it's difficult to find someone willing to commit to a project of this size.

Oh, I always assumed that you decided to make the game CGless. I hope you find someone to illustrate them then!

Me too! Getting someone for a project of this size is pretty hard, but I try to work with new artists on various side projects in hopes of finding the right person for TLS.

Re: The Last Sovereign [Updated 9/8 - CHAPTER COMPLETE!]

New update, everybody!

Content:
 - Three brand new nations: New Givini, the Chalice States, and Tak'Kan
 - Free travel: access opened to nearly every nation on Arclent
 - Conclusion of the party gathering quest
 - New plot dungeon
 - Two new plot scenes
 - New round of investment returns
 - 25+ new investment opportunities
 - Unrestricted ability to convert ProN to Sx
 - Enemies have regenerated around the world

Image

This update gives access to the new nations you created in the wake of the war, for the first time letting the player freely travel (almost) anywhere in the world. So look forward to places and characters both old and new.

Image

You can also expect various elements of the game to advance, both the core plot as well as many characters. The characters also get to visit a key location for the first time in the newest dungeon.

Image

And there are tons of new investments, so look forward to balancing the desires and goals of many nations and characters. Some of them are simpler than others:
Image

This is a really broad update and honestly I'm kind of stretched thin. But this one is definitely going public, since it ties together the basebuilding stuff, lets you progress the main quests, and advances the story. I'm just not sure when. Either in one week, or in two weeks with more content added. I wanted to add more sex scenes, for example, but ran out of time.

Anyway, will update then!
