About Cromwell

The King is dead. Long live the Commonwealth! 

Step into the shoes of Oliver Cromwell, the King In All But Name, as you rule the newly established Protectorate. Make tough decisions and try to keep the realm stable during this turbulent time.

  • Experience one of the most tumultuous periods of British history through the eyes of the divisive Oliver Cromwell.
  • Discover characters and factions of the time. Use the game’s Info Button to access additional information to help you make more informed decisions!
  • Make the same choices Cromwell did… or don’t. Find out if your choices align with real history using the Divergence Indicator.
  • Not happy with the content in the game? You're in luck! Use the editors to create new characters and events or to modify existing ones.

How To Play

The goal of Cromwell: King In All But Name is to keep the powers of the church, people, army and parliament (when they're in session) in balance in order to prolong your rule of the Protectorate for as long as possible. Will you last as long as Cromwell did or will you fail somewhere along the way?
