One of the games I've been most closely paying attention to in the downloadable space is Fat Princess. The concept, cartoonish design and emphasis on team-based strategy are all things which I have found highly appealing as we've continued to cover the game in the last several months. I've seen it played a few times now, but never had the opportunity to hold the controller in my hands and really see for myself.
That has all changed today and I can say with absolute confidence that I am now a man. I don't care if she's a fat chick, I'm in no way ashamed of the time we spent together. After playing this game, I'm officially a chubby chaser.
Hit the jump to find out why.
Fat Princess is, for those unaware, a team-based action strategy game. Two rival teams of up to sixteen players apiece compete in a variety of different game modes of varying complexity. At its most basic, the game can be played as team deathmatch. Snatch and Grab is similar to capture-the-flag, where the opposing team's princess is on her throne and must be dragged to your dungeon. Invasion involves capturing outposts scattered across the game map and maintaining control of them to drive down enemy morale.
