Little Princess 1

Title Screen for Little Princess

From the intro:

"It was a bright and sunny Sunday morning. I was on a date with my girlfriend, Miki. But disaster suddenly struck out of nowhere. The skies turned a foul shade of black. And out of nowhere, clad in the darkest of shadow, Dracula appeared to steal Miki away from me. I desperately pursued that wicked Dracula. And before I knew it, I was in a different world. Miki, I'll definitely save you. Please wait for me."

The game's story features the same Kentarou and Miki from the Rance titles, however Dracula would later be retconned and be replaced with Demon King Gi.


The gameplay is pretty straightforward. The player sees a screen and then has to search around by typing words into a textbox. Most of the time you use 'look', followed by a specific thing like tree, or rock. The goal is to collect all the items you need and use them wherever they are necessary. These aren't particularly straightforward, so it's a lot of trial and error. Your best bet is to save repeatedly before any action and then attempt every option multiple times. This should lead you to the end of the game succesfully.

Example of how the textbox works.

Aside from the textbox, the player can also press some of the function keys for some effects, namely:

  • F1 - Look inside your bag
  • F3 - Saves the game
  • F5 - Loads the game

In terms of length it's an incredibly short game. It can be beaten in less than 10 minutes easily, as long as you know what you are doing.

--- Post notes ---

-The guide says there is a "Garlic", but it's not needed.

- The Garlic is on the path north of the sleeping girl.

-Mentioned before, Hiroko will ask for a gem every time you want to pass.

-It seems that many of the "talk girl" are optional, but where is the fun in not doing them?

+Never knew why you kill dracula with the word pompon, or where you get that info. (not anymore, thanks /Assault for the info)

-If anyone discovers new content plaese share.
