★★★ "Mercy Royal" is an indie adventure game, with a twist. ★★★
Attention: If you're using an iPad with a retina display (iPad 3 or 4), then the game is basically unplayable. I'm working on a fix, it's coming soon! Sorry!
If you have an iPad 1 or 2, then the game should run fine.

"Mercy Royal is a strange, dark, interactive satire by two of the talented students from the USC Games program. It was great to see this game come together in the class I teach with Peter Brinson, and I’m looking forward to seeing how the world reacts to it!"
-Richard Lemarchand, lead game designer of the Uncharted series
