The English Civil War 1690-1655
Cruel Necessity is a solitaire game simulating the military, political, and religious struggles of the English Civil Wars. You attempt to stop the advance of four armies bent of destroying Parliament and Puritanism, whom you represent. Simply holding on to London is not enough; you must also suppress the enemies of Puritanism, Parliamentary Government, and English domination.
There are civil wars going on not just in England, but is Scotland and Ireland too; and each will have varying impact on the play of the game at different times.
You can also play Cruel Necessity cooperatively with a team of player working together and deciding how best to preserve and propagate the principles of the Enlightenment and Reformation.
We do not mean for Cruel Necessity to be a highly accurate simulation of the English Civil Wars; rather, it is a thoughtful and provocative interactive telling of this story told in the guise of a game. Key events of the period unfold and you will find yourself making the crucial decisions required to save Parliament-arianism and Puritanism from their enemies within and without.
The title comes from the purported response to the beheading of King Charles by his implacable foe, Oliver Cromwell, who remarked that his act of regicide was a "Cruel necessity."
