A Matter of Principle from DillyFrame Games is an interactive comic novel on the events of June 28, 1914, in Sarajevo. On that day, at the beginning of the 20th century, Bosnian Serb Gavrilo Princip killed Franz Ferdinand, the heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne. As you know by now, this led to the first World War. Who was Princip? What led him to perform this act? Who was Franz Ferdinand? What do the two have in common? Could the war have been avoided in the end?
The story comes from the pen of artist Askold Akishin, who gives us a story in black and white presented in comic book panels. Along with the comic section that tells the story panel by panel, there’s also a Quiz Mode where you will answer some questions about the story you’ve just experienced. There’s also a Gallery section where you can check some bonus images created by additional artists.
The game has a long list of trophies, with a Platinum trophy waiting for you at the end of the road. The list includes 6 Bronze trophies, 29 Silver trophies, and a single Gold trophy for you to pop before that shiny Platinum can be added to your collection. Most of the trophies will unlock as you complete each chapter in the story. The rest of the trophies are tied to the Quiz Mode section, which is split into questions about Gavrilo Princip and questions about Franz Ferdinand. If you want some extra help, you can check out this A Matter of Principle Trophy Guide.
