    Gorgeous art, fun scenario design, and an arsenal of quality of life features are among Banner of the Maid's boons. RPG fans with an interest in one of the most influential periods of history should give Banner of the Maid a look, as it is an inspired and twisting alternate take on late 18th-century France.

    Banner of the Maid offers a different narrative of the French Revolution through the Visual Novel aspect and at the same time it provides a decent turn-based strategy game.

    I had a lot of fun with Banner of the Maid, and I really enjoyed the more unique elements that it offers. There are some issues with menu organization and balance, but the game loop of progressing through the French Revolution while also building an affinity with various factions was brilliant. Now, which other historical figures can we turn to waifus and husbandos?

Deep and complex, with lots of content, great pixel art and anime-style art, with an interesting alternate take on the story of the French Revolution. The translation to English leaves room for improvement, but it is perfectly understandable anyway. Recommended! Full Review »

    Great call back to the old generation of fire emblem games. Game is challenging and never got frustratingly difficult.
