MOVEMENT AND VIEW

You can move with the keyboard (WASD) or clicking with the mouse.

VIEW MANIPULATION

You can manipulate the view to adapt your necessities of a wider view or a focus on what surrounds you.

USE OF MAGIC SPELLS

This is a small example of the possibilities of combining your magic powers. There are many different spells that you'll need to use through your adventure. Combine them wisely to get the best results!

What can we say about our lovely princess? She's smart, brave, strong... and she even has magical powers. She has everything a hero could dream about.

BLUE DRAGON

He is a fat and lazy dragon, that's all. He doesn't care about you moving around, rescuing princes or having a picnic, he won't move or pursue you until you get in his sightOnce you get on his sight he'll go after you... slowly... very slowly. Surprisingly, despite his fatness, as a water element dragon, he won't drown and can go underwater for as much time as he wish.

GREEN DRAGON

This dragon is based on the Earth / Plants element and can communicate with any living thing that grows on the earth. Other than his extreme curiosity, the green dragon doesn't have any special behavior or power.

YELLOW DRAGON

If dragons are HUGE fire breathing lizards, then we could say the yellow dragon is "just" big. He is quite slimmer than the rest of the dragons. His less weight provides him an incredible speed and agility, so even if you are not on his sight, you should be careful of him and try to keep the distances. His natural element is the Thunder.

RED DRAGON

Here it comes the "grandpa" of all dragons. He is old as he is clever, so don't get fooled by his appearance and be careful because he won't be affected by some of your magic spells. He is based on the fire element, so forget about attacking him with fire.

BLACK DRAGON

And finally we present the black dragon. The most mean and evil dragon of them all by some also called as the prince's slayer. His black skin and filled up with horns all around him are the only alert you might have about his evilness, and his look with those red eyes might paralyze of fear even to the bravest warrior. His natural element is the darkness.

50 different princes to rescue. All of them with their own personality, story, clothes, equipment, crowns, hair dresses, hair color... wait... what!? WHY ALL OF THEM ARE BRUNETTE!?!?!? Wait until I have a word with those those lazy pixel-artists... *leaving and shouting*

Every bit of each scenarios in the game have been carefully designed  wonderful pieces of art.

In Rescue the Prince you won't hear anything like "Sorry but your prince is in another castle" because in every castle in Dragonland there's a kidnapped prince that needs to be rescued.

Here are some examples of the lovely music used in the game. Better to enjoy with good headphones, your body relaxed and your eyes closed.

All the tiers will also include all the benefits and products from the previous not limited tiers.

Even tho that the game could be quite challenging our idea is that everybody could be able to play and we still want to keep it like that, so all rewards on tiers that implies naming, pictures, level design, easter eggs, etc... must be approved by the Triple Cherry Games team. We promise we will be extremely open minded when we accept all this kind of content, however we will not accept any sexual, offensive, religious or any other content that we believe might break the harmony of the project.

For all the rewards that includes a pixel version of a backer, the design will be done following the guidelines of the current art style to fit into the general design. For this you'll be requested to send us some pictures of yourself.

Note that currency conversions are approximate and may vary.

If you are reading this, you probably have read the whole thing. Awesome! Thank you very much for your time but now is time to select a tier, to back us and then to tell everybody about our awesome game. Spreading the word is also a BIG help.

Risks and challenges

The team of Triple Cherry Games have been working already for quite long in the development of this game spending countless hours of unpaid work because we believe on it.

In a software project (specially in games) there are hundreds of problems that could make change the release date or even cancel the project.

For us, after all this work, cancelling the project is not an option and with our experience, we are totally confident on the dates setted for the release of this project.

If any unpredicted issue happen that could risk the project we will work to solve it and we promise that we will ALWAYS be absolutely transparent with all our beloved fans and backers and we will communicate if any mayor issue happens.

As for the physical rewards, all of them are handmade, so if there are big quantities of backers who request physical items, they might be delayed. This might be an issue we won't be able to avoid. The resources we have to create the items are limited, however we guarantee that you'll get your physical items and we will do our best for it to be the sooner.
