Such a cute little storybook game. :3 I've played it about an hour and I'm enjoying it. A game that plays similar to it is called Dokuro and is available on Steam for all those on PC that are unable to play this adorable little game.

Looks pretty nice I must say. I like the art and it looks like a very sweet story.

That said, I'm continually frustrated with their trailers hinting at the story but showing only tiny glimpses of how the gameplay works. I guess that will be easy enough to figure out once reviews start coming out but I wish they would have described that better in their trailers.

Considering its a puzzle game there isn't much they can show without just giving away all the puzzles. Even the physical box only shows one screen shot of the mechanics that is introduced into the game.

Your task it to guide the prince through little puzzles and taking out monsters in your path. Part of the mechanics unlock as you play further such as being able to tell him to move forward and backwards with your commands.

Otherwise, you hold his hand the entire time and guide him as you open the path for him. He's one hit KO but there are multitude of checkpoints

Also the game is rather short. I'm about 2 hours in and seemingly halfway by the stage select feature. I've gone through 12 of a total of 22 options in stage select and have had zero boss fights so yea. Oh there is also an option to skip stage in the menu that unlocks after a while if you get stuck.

The game is simple and cute. It's shortness is clearly the reason it's only $20 digitally.

EDIT: A note as well, its seems NIS wasn't kidding when they called the physical release a Limited Edition. The PS4 seems to be sold out everywhere and they had no disk-only release.

See, that's why I was confused! I had no idea it was a puzzle game, I figured it was closer to a platformer.
