Confused on Steam Play and Proton? Be sure to check out our guide.

Black Tabby Games have just announced Slay the Princess. It's a choice-driven psychological horror visual novel / dating sim with dramatic branching, light RPG elements and hand-penciled art. This is the same developer who created Scarlet Hollow, a popular episodic visual novel.

I found Scarlet Hollow to be pretty great so it's nice to see the developer do more, and with Native Linux support again. See the new reveal trailer below:

Feature Highlight:

  • A princess. She's very bad and you have to get rid of her for all our sakes.
  • No, the Princess isn't a cosmic horror. She's just an ordinary human Princess, and you can definitely slay her as long as you put your mind to it.
  • Don't even think about trying to romance her. It won't end well for you.
  • Hopefully you won't die. But if you do, you'll die a lot. Be careful and stay focused on the task at hand!
  • Time loops No time loops. Don't be ridiculous. Time is a strictly linear concept and it certainly doesn't "loop," whatever that's supposed to mean.
  • A branching narrative where what you say and what you believe determines both your build and how the story unfolds.
  • A new roleplaying experience from the creators of Scarlet Hollow.
  • Fully voice-acted by the impeccable Jonathan Sims and Nichole Goodnight.

You can follow it on Steam.

Somehow this makes me imagine it's the other side of Long Live the Queen.

(Which is rather darker than the anime style makes it look)

I was really impressed with the demo for Scarlet Hollow so I will keep my eye on it. I hope they offer it on Itch.io or GOG as they will with Scarlet Hollow.

The art style reminds me of my wife's ink drawings. I'm definitely going to buy this game.

I'm sure there's no chance of it happening because it'd be too much work but, it'd be really cool if we could optionally do the inverse. Slay the Prince
