About this game

Escape your captors…and endure your rescuers, but don't be late to the ball! When you are kidnapped, you must take charge of your rescue, and reclaim your rightful throne.

Kidnapped! A Royal Birthday is a 158,000-word interactive comedy by Charles Battersby, where your choices control the story. It's entirely text-based, without graphics or sound effects, and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

Conspirators have imprisoned you in a tower, and are plotting to usurp your throne. And it's your birthday! Take command of the inept but well-intended crew sent to rescue you from your tower–a brazen knight, a snarky amazon, a cursed enchantress, and a humble peasant. Work together to escape your captors, outwitting your foes to make it back to the castle and regain your power as royal Heir.

But first: fight the three-headed chimera, the two-eyed biclops, and a horde of insatiable gnomes!(They're surprisingly dangerous after a few drinks). Wield swords, magic, or fight with your wits and grace. If all else fails, pummel your enemies with a chamberpot tied to a stick.

*Play as male, female, or nonbinary, gay, straight, bisexual, or asexual
*Act like a damsel in distress (or an imperiled person) and let your rescuers do the work, or grab a sword and fight your own battles.
* Unravel the conspiracy behind your abduction and thwart your scheming siblings.
*Side with the aristocrats, or join a peasant rebellion.
*Gain stature to prove that you are the one true Heir.
*Harness fairy magic to bewilder and defeat your foes!
*Disguise yourself as an Elder Vampire, stare down a giant, and take a nap in a glass coffin!
*Find love with any or your rescuers...or marry a goblin (you know you're curious).
*Bring peace to the kingdom, or revel in the chaos of civil war.

Incredibly disappointing. The story has great characters and an interesting plot but doesn't really do anything with them so there's a lot of wasted potential. The MC isn't very customizable, the choices you make have very little impact, and the romances are poorly written which sucks because I genuinely loved all the ROs. The biggest disappointment was the ending I got. It was SO abrupt, I was shocked when I clicked next and got to the "rate this game" screen. It soured me on the whole game.

I haven't reviewed one of these in a while. I buy these kinds of stories all of the time. This one was very creative! Fascinating! I wish this author had more stories. I enjoyed the fact that there was a good balance of choices and storytelling. One I bought previously started off with a decent amount of choices, then after you purchased the entire story, it stopped giving you choices and took the storytelling away from the reader. I was very happy this one did not resort to such tactics.
