New release: Loren the Amazon Princess

Winter Wolves (whom you may know as the developers behind Planet Stronghold) have just released a new game called Loren the Amazon Princess. The premise:

Travel by Princess Loren’s side as she searches for her lost mother, the Queen of the Amazons. Guide her choices and act as her valiant defender, meeting many colorful characters along the way. As the journey progresses, everyone will grow and change — character development in games isn’t dead! It’s also impossible to see all the content in just one playthrough, with so many ways to customize the characters.

Loren the Amazon Princess features turn-based combat, 13 recruitable characters, and 12 possible romances “including all possible gender combinations.” So basically, it’s very much in the same vein as Planet Stronghold. (Incidentally, I’m guessing LtAP doesn’t feature targeted attacks–from the looks of it, every single one of your characters would die with one hit to the abdomen.)

LtAP comes in Windows, Mac and Linux flavors; whatever your OS, however, the game can be yours for $24.99. There’s a free demo [ Windows | Mac | Linux ] as well as a trailer, which just so happens to show off some gameplay as well:

Note: the developer wrote up a post-mortem of the game here, in case you’re interested in reading about his trials and travails putting this game together.
