Black Tabby Games announced that their horror RPG visual novel, Slay the Princess, has achieved over 100,000 copies sold.
“It’s been absolutely incredible to see such a positive reception from fans, critics, creators, and everyone,” says Tony Howard-Arias, Lead Writer at Black Tabby Games. “People making time to not just play our game but to replay it, share their experiences, create art, and write fan fiction in a world where so many games demand your attention has been a real honor.”
Slay the Princess is described as a “cheeky horror tragicomedy” where players encounter a princess who has been imprisoned in a cabin deep in the woods. However, the player is simply tasked with ending the princess’ life because she is fated to bring an end to the world. However, players must decide for themselves who to trust since the memories of the characters are a little hazy.
Slay the Princess has players choose how to proceed through the story, but the developer informs the player that they will die a lot. Reacting to new information will change the outcome of the story, which has many endings depending on the choices. The choices can also change the princess, causing her to change into a demon or a normal princess.
The death ends don’t mean that players have to restart the game. Players can use the time loop feature to make a different choice. There are ten different endings, and the game is fully voiced in English.
