Banner of the Maid lets players join the French Revolution in a turn-based-strategy style with some JRPG elements mixed in. The game was first launched in China in May of 2019, with an 89% user approval score on Steam. Today, Azure Flame Studio and publisher CE-Asia are excited to announce that the game’s English release has just launched. It is priced at $16.99.

 

Players take on the role of young officer Pauline Bonaparte in an alternate French Revolution. In the late 18th and early 19th centuries, lead your troops to victory in battles, while taking part in the political landscape as well. Your troops will include some of the most iconic from this era. Furthermore, Pauline is not simply an exceptional young officer, but also a maid (meaning she is one of a few fabled women with the power to turn the tide of battle). Along the way, you’ll need to embark on quests or challenges to gain funds, secure supplies, or achieve political favor. You’ll need funds to improve both your supplies and weaponry in order to keep yourself ready for anything. However, if you’re not careful, your choices may wind up tipping the balance of power in unintended ways.

 

The battles you’ll wage in Banner of the Maid will take place across more than 30 differing terrains, from cities, to wide open plains, to snowcapped mountains. You’ll also have to contend with changing environmental conditions such as fog and snow. There are over 30 generals, each with unique backgrounds and skills that you can train to improve. You’ll need to talk to each of them to discover their stories and of course earn their trust.

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in his late 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES, SNES, and N64 among others. He loves Nintendo, but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks/bike rides, loves animals, and enjoys thunderstorms (and science in general).

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called Pre-Computer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode (a bare-bones version of BASIC) which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer, which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the Unity 3D game engine (a powerful and easy-to-use engine) and learning 3D modelling in Blender.

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
