Seemingly plucked from the pages of an ancient fairy tale, The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince tells the story of a solitary wolf, who sings a beautiful melody in her loneliness, and the young prince who seeks out the voice's origins. Upon finding its source, the prince inadvertently startles the wolf, who blinds him by accident. When the prince is locked away, the wolf seeks to free him and restore his sight.

The wolf visits the witch of the forest to receive a human form so that the prince could no longer be harmed. In exchange for her singing voice, the wolf becomes a princess and returns to the blind prince. The two then embark on a dangerous journey to bring the prince to the witch of the forest and heal his eyesight. All will be revealed in this beautiful, haunting fairy tale of love and loss…

Experience a tale within The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince in the Storybook Edition! Begin with “The Little Liar’s Fairy Tale”, a hardcover art book that outlines the journey of these titular characters. Soothe yourself with “Lullabies for the Blind Prince,” the official soundtrack that comes in a jewel case. Everything is carefully packed into a Collector’s Box. While supplies last.

- Unleash Your Inner Monster - Transform at will from a princess into a wolf to guide the blind prince towards a cure. Weave through the dangerous forest, but be careful... A blind prince has no place in an all-seeing forest.

- Brute Strength Meets Sharp Wit - Various obstacles will require the wolf's strength, and others will require the princess's wit. With so many traps and perilous hurdles that await, can the two make it safely to their final destination?

- Lost Pages from a Forgotten Tale - With each delicate petal comes a fragment of memories shared by the wolf and the prince. Collect them along your journey and paint a vivid story of friendship, love, and loss.

As wonderful as the art and soundtrack are, and for as much as I enjoy the story, they can't quite save what is otherwise a pretty standard puzzle-platformer. The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince only ever comes close to meeting its potential in the final stage of the game, and that's not an exaggeration. Every time it flirts with some creative concepts, it quickly retreats to its quotidian comfort zone. I personally love this game because I enjoy a good fairytale, but unlike the titular prince, I'm not so blind I can't see everything that's wrong with it.

It's remarkable how a game that has such a well-written plot and such immersive, authentic worlds still needs considerable work when it comes to its controls, level design and overall quality of the puzzles. Still, for what it is, The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince can stand on its feet, provided the player is willing to be a bit lenient with its flaws.

The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince definitely lives in a story gamer's wheelhouse, but there's plenty here to satisfy those who may not care about a story in games. But I bet you will care about this one by the time you reach the end.
