The Life and Suffering of Sir Brante is a narrative-driven RPG that comes to life on the pages of the protagonist's journal. Set in a ruthless world where any form of dissent is mercilessly crushed, the story follows a man who has dared to challenge the existing order. Set out on a lifelong journey and become an individual able to carve out their own destiny... But remember that freedom never comes cheap.
Life in the Great Arknian Empire is harsh and its hardest Lot is yours by the circumstance of birth. You are a commoner, holding no rights and no title. To seize your fate and become the rightful heir to the legacy of the Brante family you will have to come to grips with ossified tradition and prejudice. Embarking on a life-long journey from one's birth until true death, you will have to endure great upheavals, face adversity, and make many difficult choices. Every decision will affect not only the protagonist, his family, and loved ones, but may even topple the foundation of the Empire itself.
At the turn of time
Every imperial citizen's life is predetermined by their estate. The deities known as the Twin Gods have bestowed this truth to the world, dividing mortals into Lots. The nobles lead and rule over others, while the clergy guides people on the one true path, and the lowborn suffer, toiling away for the glory of the Empire. You may accept your fate without question, but it is also in your power to change the cosmic order that governs all.
Your choice is not an illusion
Divided into chapters, the game keeps track of the player's deeds, the skills they acquired, as well as other overlapping circumstances that shape a unique plotline for each playthrough. Every decision has its consequences and you will be held accountable throughout the entire journey. To protect your family and loved ones, to impose the rule of the Emperor and make a fortune, or to try and change the world as you see fit... Make your choice, but beware of the follies of pride and ambition.
Fight for your life
One man is anything but omnipotent in this realm yet under your guidance, Sir Brante may become a person who can endure every trial fate throws at him and rewrite the very laws that govern his world! Develop and train your character, leveling up such traits as determination, sensitivity, and endurance. All of the hero's skills, starting with those acquired in infancy, will affect his personality, worldview, and relationships, ultimately unlocking new talents and possible storylines.
Find your own path
The first complete walkthrough can take you upwards of 15 hours! Numerous branching paths that affect the unfolding story will make every playthrough a unique experience: become a noble judge, learn the ways of the inquisition, plot a revolution as a member of a secret society, or embrace an entirely different purpose. Be brave and fate itself shall bend to your will!
There and hereafter
Resurrection system allows the character to keep his experience upon death, letting the player reevaluate past steps and make adjustments to their strategy going forward. Take control not only of your life but also your demise, then put everything at stake in this cycle of death and rebirth!

WHAT IS THE LIFE AND SUFFERING OF SIR BRANTE?
The Life and Suffering of Sir Brante is a narrative-driven text-based RPG set in a ruthless medieval realm that comes to life on the pages of the protagonist's journal. Though every man's life is predetermined by the Lot they received at birth, it is you who decides whether your character will challenge fate and alter his destiny, rewriting the established laws of the universe.
The unpredictable conclusion to the game's story hinges solely on your actions – only you can decide it all!
The Life and Suffering of Sir Brante is widely regarded as one of the most anticipated text-based titles of 2021 with more than 1400 positive reviews on Steam earned by a free version of the game. Seems too good to be true? Here’s what other players have to say about the game!
Placed at the foundation of the game's narrative is the life of a single individual whom we follow from the very birth, reflecting on events and actions that shape his personality and may even one day influence the course of history itself.
The Life and Suffering of Sir Brante is based on a live action role-playing event known as the Talisman, attended by numerous participants from all over Russia during the past 11 years where they have brought the inhabitants of the strange and somber imaginary realm to life.
The only surviving state in the world of The Life and Suffering of Sir Brante, the Empire stretches from one shore of the endless sea to the other. It is ruled by Arknians — a nigh immortal race whose members never age. No human can go against the will of Arknian nobility, since their power stems from the Twin Gods themselves
Said to have been bestowed onto mortals by the Twin Gods, the Lots are the estates that all the citizens of the Empire are separated into at birth. Those who abide by the rules prescribed to their Lot have a chance at being granted entry into heaven, also known as the Peak of the Shining Pillar, after they die. Those who disregard or rebel against their Lot are doomed to eternal suffering at the Foot of the Pillar.
WHO ARE YOU, SIR BRANTE?
Sir Brante was born to an honorable family as a result of an unequal marriage between a widowed nobleman and a peasant woman. Owing to this fact, the Lot that awaited the young Brante since early childhood was that of his lowborn mother — to be a commoner and toil away for the glory of the Empire. Our hero, however, has a chance to alter his own destiny by earning the mantle of nobility as his father once did before him, by becoming the voice of the Twin Gods — the prime deities of the realm — or perhaps even by challenging the existing order and throwing off the shackles of the Lots altogether. It is up to you as the player to forge Sir Brante’s path.
Feel free to grab a free version of the game The Life and Suffering of Sir Brante: Chapter 1&2 on Steam and wishlist the main version of the game if you like it!
