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. Still, you must decide for yourself who to trust since the memories of the characters are a little hazy.
Slay the Princess has you choose how to proceed through the story, but you will die plenty. Reacting to new information will change the outcome of the narrative, 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 you need to restart from scratch. Players can use the time loop feature to make a different choice. There are ten different endings, and it’s all fully voiced in English.
Slay the Princess is available on PC via Steam.
