About

"You can give up and die—that's actually an option—but the idea is to learn to fend for yourself." - PC Gamer

 

"It’s definitely one of the most intriguing games looking for funding on Kickstarter right now." - Examiner

"Finally! A smart dive into damsel in distress trope!" - Gamemoir

But don't just take media's word for it! Check out our DEMO.

You play as Amelia, a kidnapped princess, whose savior died on the way home and she got left on her own in the middle of nowhere. In order to survive and get home, she will have to learn to take care of herself, make her own decisions that affect both herself and the people around, and face the consequences they entail.

          "Survival isn’t about getting a shotgun or building a zombie-proof  fortification, it’s simply about making it through the night after the  knight in shining armor gets offed in the woods. " - One Angry Gamer

The game is a conversation about vulnerability, love and a person's perception of self. What makes us helpless? What if the people we love want us to be this way so they can protect us, feel needed and appreciated? What if we were raised believing that we should not solve problems by ourselves, but ask for help instead? 

 The story has multiple endings and plot branches to give you the opportunity to answer those questions the way you see fit. 

The decisions you make have huge effect on pretty much every character you encounter during the game and ultimately decide your own fate as well.

       "For once, starting your RPG adventure with no skills, stats, equipment actually makes sense!" - Gamemoir

A Princess To Save Me is a turn-based tactical role-playing game.

Effectively that means the following:  

  • You control a party up to 4 characters and you decide who those characters would be. Each has their strengths and weaknesses. The key to success is to choose your companions with care and command them wisely.
  • It's a turn based combat. Every character can perform actions as long as they have action points. They can move, attack, use a skill or wait.
  • As the game progresses characters do too! They gain experience, become stronger and acquire new skills. 

 A Princess To Save Me is set in a fantasy medieval universe, which we've been very geeky about. It has its traditions and laws, and beliefs people act upon. Magic is present, but fairly rare and restricted to scholars. 

 Religion and family play a big role in folk's everyday life. Majority of population lives in small villages where men work and women stay with kids. 

Bards in taverns sing songs about brave warriors, creepy magicians and beautiful princesses living in castles, not wandering in forests gods forbid…

         "Society that makes beautiful princesses into damsels is still there" - Gamemoir

Money we'll collect on Kickstarter will go towards creating better visuals for the game. We're doing development, writing the story and creating the soundtrack ourselves at our own expense.

Risks and challenges

At this moment the project is at stage of a working prototype. We have tested all the ideas we want to include in our game.
The only challenge we see at this point is that we might want to expand the game beyond our initial plans.
That will only happen if the project raises much more than our current funding goal. It won't in any way stop the game from being delivered, but it might slow us down.
We will notify our backers right away should it become the case.
