The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince
A Lovely Recreation with Lackluster Puzzles
As a fan of Japanese video games, I’m at all times open to making an attempt out quite a lot of Japanese revealed and developed video games, even the marginally lewd and questionable ones (though there’s a line.) I’m significantly a fan of a variety of the area of interest video games revealed by NIS America, such because the Yomawari video games, Hotaru no Nikki or any of NIS video games that has both Yu Mizokami or Masayuki Furuya as character designers.
I’m at all times excited to see extra video games designed by both of them, so I used to be blissful when The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince. It jogged my memory of A Rose within the Twilight, besides that is much less eerie and miserable. Even the puzzles had been related, besides extra matching of their corresponding settling.

The sport begins because it was narrating a fairy story, introducing the prince who ventured each evening right into a scary forest to listen to a good looking music however little did the prince know that it was a singing wolf. Nonetheless, one may he was decided to study the identification of the singing voice along with his personal two eyes, so he climbed the cliff. At first, the wolf didn’t discover something uncommon till she’s didn’t hear the standard applauses after her performances.
After some pondering, she seemed down and observed the prince was climbing the cliff. Afraid of him studying her identification, she prolonged her paws to cowl his eyes however as an alternative ended up attacking his eyes. Trying to amend her mistake, she went on a search of a witch who would be capable of grant any want, on the expense of one thing very treasured. The wolf transforms right into a human princess in trade for her singing voice—they each agreed. This begins their journey via the treacherous risks of the forest.
Equally to A Rose within the Twilight, The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince is a puzzle-platform besides the place you management the wolf/princess who has the facility to change between the 2 types. Identical to you may management the Large within the former, you might give instructions to the prince wherein you aren’t capable of execute in both type. Nonetheless, the distinction between the 2 titles is that this recreation is extra of an escort mission the place you shield him from hurt from different close by monsters.
In her wolf type, she will be able to assault enemies in addition to simply fall from larger floor with out worrying about taking injury or dying that may happen in her human type, thus sending you again to your newest checkpoint. You can even push blocks that are required to push activating buttons. Her human type helps you match smaller areas and seize the prince round, in addition to give him instructions corresponding to stroll sure distances by himself, seize blocks, or carry a torch later throughout the recreation. All important instructions that can aid you progress.
Whereas the sport is enjoyable and addicting, I might hardly contemplate its puzzles difficult. So should you’re in search of Portal 2-esque puzzles, this recreation isn’t actually for you. For essentially the most half, a variety of the puzzles are frequent sense and simple to determine. When you’re certain to make foolish errors, the platforming isn’t exhausting both. Nonetheless, the true attraction of the sport is its aesthetics setting and storytelling. That’s what pushes you thru the sport. It’s actually a good looking recreation.
The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince is an fulfilling recreation with good storytelling, settings, soundtrack, and aesthetics. These video games are largely appreciated and aimed for a distinct segment viewers, and as a result of fundamental degree of puzzle-platforming, it’s exhausting to suggest it to any fan of that style. If you happen to’re fan of Masayuki Furuya or cute storytelling, then this recreation is a should, in any other case, I recommend to look elsewhere.
