If I asked you to think of a Roguelike, your mind would probably immediately travel to something set in a dark cave or dungeon, rather than the glamour of the Parisian aristocracy. That’s something that the makers of Ambition: A Minuet in Power are hoping to change.
One of Ambition's devs used to design lootboxes, and had some stuff to say about them in a recent AMA.
Set in Paris before the rise of the French Revolution, Ambition is a romantic roguelike, where you’ll need to woo the right people to make sure you steer clear of the guillotine. Randomly-generated playthroughs will mean that different factions rise to power every time you play, certain nobles won’t appear every time you play, and the Revolution itself might not succeed.
