Queen's Wish 2: The Tormentor - Released

by Hiddenx, 16:40

Spiderweb's newest RPG Queen's Wish 2: The Tormentor has been released:

Queen's Wish 2: The Tormentor

You are the youngest child of Queen Sharyn, the absolute leader of the Empire of Haven. While your older siblings have grabbed fame and power, you have slid by in a life of quiet luxury. Until now.

Your mother, the Queen, is ill. Haven is in a panic, struggling to keep up with her endless list of final wishes. You are the youngest of the family. Not entirely trusted with the serious work of Empire, you're given the tedious royal errands.

So you are sent to tour the Rokaj, one of your more remote and ferocious vassal states. Your father's homeland. When you arrive, you expect the usual tedium of welcoming banquets and speeches, but get an assassination attempt instead. Now you must search the mountains of the Ro and put down a violent rebellion, while obeying (or not) the constant commands of your Royal family.

Reclaim land. Build forts. Abuse your butler. Be diplomatic or do battle. History is happening quickly ... Try to survive it.

Queen's Wish 2: The Tormentor - August 24th Release

by Silver, 11:09

Queens' Wish 2: The Tormentor has a planned release date of August 24th listed on the Steam page.

You are a child of the dread Queen of the mighty empire of Haven. Alas, your life of happy luxury has been stripped from you. The Queen, your mother, is desperately ill, so you have been forced to travel to the savage Rokaj. It is a poor and brutal land of warriors, constantly prone to rebellion.

You find yourself in the middle of a vicious power struggle, between your masters back home and the raiders and assassins of the wilderness. A rebellion is brewing. If you can’t prove yourself and master the wild Ro, it will be a bloody disaster. Can you take control of your Empire’s lands? And what will you do with them once you have it?

Explore a vast nation full of cities, forts, and dungeons. Fight clever, carefully designed turn-based battles. Deal with misbehaving vassals with bribery, diplomacy, or violence. Build new forts and customize them, choosing among upgrades that give your adventurers powerful bonuses. Experience with other Queen's Wish games is not necessary to enjoy Queen's Wish 2.

Queen's Wish 2: The Tormentor features:

  • Epic fantasy adventure with over 50 hours of gameplay.
  • Open-ended story in the barbarian lands of the Rokaj. Make the choices you want, and enjoy the terrifying consequences.
  • Suspenseful tactical combat. Select from sixty different abilities. Build and rebuild your warriors to face rapidly changing foes.
  • Gain strength with a unique fortress system. Build and equip fortresses. Customize your Empire to gain power or please the locals.
  • Explore (Conquer?) an enormous outdoors and a huge variety of dungeons and enemy fortresses.
  • Not just orcs and elves. Explore one of the fascinating, detailed worlds that make Spiderweb Software adventures unique.
  • Over 100 quests and hundreds of magical artifacts to hunt for.


Enjoy a new adventure from Spiderweb Software, now celebrating 28 years of making fine indie fantasy role-playing goodness.

Queen's Wish 2: The Tormentor - May Update

by Hiddenx, 18:21

The story of Queen's Wish 2: The Tormentor is already complete:

Greetings, backers! Just a quick update to let you know where we are with your game and rewards!

The story of the game is done! We’re only a few days from the game being actually complete. We’ll be testing and tweaking it for a couple months before release in (most likely) August. It’s great news to be this close to the end of the journey, though configuring everything for a game release is a daunting job. Lots of online stores to configure and lots of tricky problems to solve. We’re not expecting any delays, though.

We have sent out the first set of backer surveys. If your reward tier included your name in the credits or you ordered a map or certificate, you should have received an email. If you haven’t, check your spam filter. If you ordered a physical object, we need your address. If you’re in the credits, we want to make sure you’re listed the way you want to be listed.

We are getting close to being able to start beta testing for high end backers. We are also putting together a demo for Steam Next Fest in June. Showing our game to so many new people is exciting but kind of scary. We hope you like it!

That is all for May. Thank you again for your support, and we’ll have an actual playable game in your hands soon. Enjoy a brand new screenshot below.

'QUEEN'S WISH 2: THE TORMENTOR' RELEASING Q3, 2022

In Q3, 2022, we will release Queen’s Wish 2: The Tormentor, a fantasy role-playing adventure for Windows, Mac, and iOS. Queen’s Wish 2 had a great Kickstarter, and our backers will soon receive the results of their generosity.

You are a child of the dread Queen of the mighty empire of Haven. Alas, your life of happy luxury has been stripped from you. The Queen, your mother, is desperately ill, so you have been forced to travel to the savage Rokaj. It is a poor and brutal land of warriors, constantly prone to rebellion.

You find yourself in the middle of a vicious power struggle, between your masters back home and the raiders and assassins of the wilderness. A rebellion is brewing. If you can’t prove yourself and master the wild Ro, it will be a bloody disaster. Can you take control of your Empire’s lands? And what will you do with them once you have it?

Explore a vast nation full of cities, forts, and dungeons. Fight clever, carefully designed turn-based battles. Deal with misbehaving vassals with bribery, diplomacy, or violence. Build new forts and customize them, choosing among upgrades that give your adventurers powerful bonuses.

Decide whether to serve the Empire or free its unhappy servants. Be warned, though. Whatever plan you make, the temptations to turn away from it will be cunning and constant. 

Thanks Kordanor!

Queen's Wish 2: The Tormentor - December Update

by Hiddenx, 10:53

Queen's Wish 2: The Tormentor is still on track for a Fall 2022 release:

Welcome to our new Queen’s Wish 2: The Tormentor update! We’ve been working furiously on the game, and we have a bunch of news.

The game is being written. The engine is basically done, and we’re about 30% of the way through the longest part of the job, writing the world. Queen’s Wish 2 has a really intricate plot with lots of characters, factions, and tough choices to make. This means a lot of time-consuming dialogue writing, with many breaks to make sure everything is connected together and makes sense.

We are also gradually accumulating artwork and talking to contributors about what will be added to the game. Soon, I’ll be taking a few days off from writing to play a bunch of the game and makes sure it feels right. The first internal testing will happen after that.

All in all, things are going well. The dungeons are fun, the setting is cool, and I’m pretty happy with the writing. (Or, as happy as I’m capable of being.) Barring disaster, we are still looking good for a release in the area of Fall, 2022.

Queen's Wish 2 Make-a-Dungeon!

In our last update,  we asked for suggestions for our improv-comedy-style bonus dungeon. We’ve gotten a ton of responses, and we’re about to start picking through them. You still have a few weeks to send in ideas!

Major Alert For High Tier Backers!

If you backed us at a level where you get to contribute content to the game, we are very grateful. However, time is passing quickly. If you want your ideas to get a good, interesting placement in the game, we need to hear from you soon. We already sent a message to all backers, and we’ll send them a reminder soon.

Queen’s Wish: The Conqueror Updated More

We released an update of Queen’s Wish: The Conqueror with a bunch of the cool new graphics from Queen’s Wish 2. We then had to make a v1.1.1 update to fix a few bugs. If you want to try the new Queen’s Wish, download it where you purchased the game.

So don’t worry. Things are going well. Enjoy your holidays, and you’ll be hearing more from us soon!
