Being King Doesn’t Look Easy In Upcoming Medieval Management Sim

Yes, Your Grace is an upcoming management sim that will put you in charge of a kingdom, and all of the witches, hunters and generals therein. I am pleased to report that this game looks like it is one thousand per cent my shit.

In Yes, Your Grace, you play as a king who needs to juggle the needs of the petitioners that come to his throne room. You’ve also got to deal with the concerns of your family and handle alliances with foreign lands. Those are already daunting tasks, but this game also has magic and the arcane to deal with as well.

“Inspired by Slavic folklore, Yes, Your Grace tells the tale of a medieval kingdom, where monsters and arcane practices are just a typical day at the office,” reads the press release for Yes, Your Grace. At each word in this sentence, my eyebrows raised higher and higher, until they ejected from my face. Though I am now eyebrowless, I am also very excited for this game, which is coming to PC and consoles in 2020.

If you’re not convinced, check out this trailer, featuring a medieval-arse banger from the band Merkfolk.

If you’re like me and are ravenous for any and every management sim you can get your hands on, you can sign up for the open beta in November by joining the Yes, Your Grace Discord channel. You don’t have to tell me twice. I’ll be right there, your grace!


    • ‘Your grace’ (short for ‘by the grace of god’) was used for English kings prior to Henry 8, so it’s not unheard of. Side note, this is why the style was used in Game of Thrones, which was loosely based on the War of the Roses, during which ‘your grace’ was still used to style the king.

        • Yep. It’s actually still part of the English royal title today as a marker of divine right, it’s just not used as a style, eg. Elizabeth 2’s full title is “Elizabeth II, by the Grace of God of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and of Her other Realms and Territories Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith”, but is styled ‘your majesty’.

          As best I can figure, ‘your majesty’ was first used by the Holy Roman Empire with the implication of it being ‘above a king’, and Henry 8 thought “ooh I’ll have some of that”.
