Ambition: A Minuet in Power is a narrative adventure game set in Paris on the eve of the French Revolution. A visual novel at heart, it brings 18th-century Paris to life through environmental audio, an array of incidental SFX, and a classically-inspired original score, which features a talented team of soloists and ensemble musicians, and is crafted to be as authentic as possible to the period. Taking a page from theatre, the music uses a branching, reactive structure that follows the pacing and paths of the player through the ever-shifting array of parties, dramatic reveals, and betrayals that make up protagonist Yvette Decaux’s story.
