Slay the Princess official artwork for the horror visual novel

If you're in the mood for something a little bit unusual, you might want to check out the somewhat recently released Slay the Princess. To put it quite simply, it's a narrative-driven horror game where all you have to do is slay the princess in order to save the world. Naturally, things don't stay that simple for very long as the story quickly spirals into a myriad of different directions, time loops and other bizarre scenarios, all of which will slowly lead you to the truth behind it all.

Since trying to explain all of this through words alone is a bit of a futile endeavor, allow me to instead share with you the freshly posted launch trailer. Have a gander, it should hopefully clarify a couple of things... hopefully:

I haven't had the time to finish it just yet, but from what I've played so far I have to say that Slay the Princess has more than managed to live up to its concept. So if the idea of a The Stanley Parable inspired branching narrative mixed with all sorts of horror tropes seems like it'll be right up your alley, I'd highly recommend giving it a look. Just whatever you do, don't look up any specific details as Slay the Princess is one of those games that is best experienced blind.

That said, if you're interested in learning a few more tidbits about it, as well as checking out the various player reviews, you can find what you seek over at Steam. Enjoy!
