Patronus is a slave training game set in ancient Rome. It's a straight historical setting without fantasy elements.
There are a couple of new or different mechanisms in this game. The first is the day planner. In the upper left corner of the screen you will see a Star/Sun or a Moon. If you click on this you can schedule activities. Right now there are only basic travel activities, but more content is coming, stay tuned. Also new to the genre is that each character has some stats that are not immediately visible. For example, the player will have no direct way of seeing the protagonists Inclicio statistic. This is on purpose. Sometimes, you will also see menus change in weird ways including additional information on the character you're talking to. When this happens it means you've successfully made an insight roll.
What other players say about the game:
It is not complete yet, but the slow progressing makes it really exciting for me, the punishing system is a lot of fun, getting to know the slaves background and side-quests are not so easy to complete what makes it really challenging
It is a slave trainer game with very good/realistic dialogues and excellent animations
A slave management game set in the late Roman empire, this game has so much potential. And the developers have indeed capitalized on much of this; their love of the era and setting, as well as their dedication to Hisinvesting in the art really shows through. There are some bugs and grinding involved
We will be reviewing the game in the future, so stay tuned.
