So many games focus on gaining control by means of military might. Those who would prefer a more intimate, social-based tale should check out Ambition: A Minuet in Power.
Set in pre-revolutionary France, players take a role on a woman hungry for power. Given the time frame, she is able to work her way up by being a skilled socialite who is more than ready to make men her pawns. Choosing outfits, and more importantly, interactive conversations, determine how you’ll be perceived.
Ambition: A Minuet in Power is currently on Kickstarter and has just about raised a third of its goal already. If successful, it will come to Windows and Mac.
