New release: The Princess’ Heart

The Princess' class=
Word reaches me that RosePortal Games has released a new jRPG called The Princess’ Heart, about “a young princess who must travel the world to win her beloved’s heart back.”

Princess Aerin Goldheart suspects that her prince is sharing the bed with another woman. After once again becoming intoxicated and making a scene, the King and Queen send her away to a forest cottage. Aerin sneaks off to sign a contract with the Demon of Desire to make the prince love her again, but things go awry and she must travel the world to break the deal!

I have to admit, this is a pretty novel premise for an RPG; and I confess, I rather like the idea of playing as a recovering alcoholic princess (who is apparently possessed by a demon, if the cover art is any indication).

RosePortal Games promises more than 30 hours of play time, 10 playable characters, and an “innovative battle system” in which spells have an area of effect. I’m not sure that it counts as innovation to add a feature that’s been in games for more than 20 years, but hey–at least it’s a new wrinkle in the default RPG Maker battle system.

The Princess’ Heart is out now for Windows; you can snag the full version here for $4.99, or play the free demo.
