If you can’t get your fill of thirteenth century mayhem from watching Game of Thrones or making repeat visits to Medieval Times, then Paradox Interactive is here to put you in the driver’s seat of your own political intrigue mobile with its new Ruler Designer for Crusader Kings II. I realize my metaphor kind of fell apart at the end there, but bear with me: the designer is actually pretty good.
Using the new Ruler Designer, players may edit details of an existing political figure, or create his or her own monarch complete with a unique coat of arms, character stats, and even the size of his or her immediate family — sort of like a cross between Civilization and The Sims. The Ruler Designer drops for digital download April 17th, with a price tag of $4.99. Hit up the break for a video demonstration!
