Marcel knows two things about his biological father: One, Lord Sandor abandoned him and his mother leaving them to live a of poverty. Two, he shouldn't want anything to do with the man.

Despite this knowledge, Marcel applies for a job as Lord Sandor's servant in order to
satisfy his curiosity about the father he never knew. The idea is to get a glimpse and go, but things become more complicated than Marcel initially planned when Lord Sandor recognizes him and makes an offer.

If Marcel can prove that he is worthy, Lord Sandor will name Marcel his heir. It all sounds a little to good to be true, but Marcel is willing to give it a chance - for now.

Play as Marcel and determine whether or not he has the skills to become Lord Sandor's heir and whether or not he forms a romantic attachment to one of four potential love interests: an ex-gladiator turned gardener, a perfectionist butler,
the local doctor, or a mischievous elven Lord.


  • Play as Marcel, Lord Sandor's secret son
  • Romance Borges, Kamal, Vincent and Eloy
  • Dating sim gameplay with stat raising
  • Beautiful manga artwork and original soundtrack
  • Scenes with different outcomes based on skill checks

I wanted to play the demo and then buy the game, but I've tried to download it three times and the file doesn't run :(

The first error is that the unzip doesn't create a new folder, but instead drops the files independently in my "Documents" folder; that has happened to me once or twice with Renpy games before, but all of them were able to run all the same. With HaG, though, when I click on the icon nothing happens, the game doesn't start. 

I don't know if perhaps the demo build for itchio is corrupted and some file is missing

Going to try now and let you know! Are you using Windows, or?

Yes, Windows

Strange, I just tried here and it works :( What windows version?

I unzipped it on a specific folder though, maybe you could try that? first move the zip in a folder and then unzip it?

It's an old laptop with Windows Vista. But Renpy runs fine, I even make my own visual novels in this device! I tried what you said and still nothing, so I'm downloading it from your website now. *crosses fingers*

EDIT: ...and nothing again. It must be my laptop, then :( Oh, well. I'll try from another computer, then. There must be some kind of incompatibility. 

Yes I'm not sure what else could be, the installer from my own site it's the same since over a year and nobody had problems :)

I also have a normal demo with installer on my own site here: http://www.winterwolves.com/download.php?game=HeirsAndGraces-1.0.0.exe

I tried opening the demo (itchio version) through Renpy, and this is the error I got, in case it helps for other cases: 


I'm sorry, but an uncaught exception occurred.

No that doesn't matter, it's because you used a newer version of Ren'Py. The one I used is the same version that's on Steam, and nobody has ever reported any problem. I really think must be the Windows Vista (it's quite old indeed). Sorry about it!
