Shameless puzzler Prison Princess tunnels onto PC in April

Damsels in Dis Dress

Qureate’s eyebrow-arching puzzle adventure Prison Princess will be arriving on PC via Steam next month, following its original Nintendo Switch release back in January.

Prison Princess’ plot (which you play it for) tells the story of two glorious kingdoms, Aria Zaza and Zanji Zard, both of which have had their fair princesses kidnapped by the evil Demon King. The player takes up the role of a noble and brave hero, tasked with saving the gals. Unfortunately, you were evidently shit at it and got yourself killed. Way to go.

Your quest to free the damsels does not end there, however. Now a ghostly wanderer, you sneak into the dark dungeons of the Demon King to find the gentle, soft Aria and the fiery-tempered Zena (TROPES!) shackled away in the dingy bowels of the castle. From there, you must guide both girls to safety, using a point-and-click interface to negotiate the castle and solve a series of tricky logic puzzles.

Utterly brazen in its intent, Querate notes that Prison Princess will see the girls “put themselves out there” in order to solve the puzzles. With all the subtlety of a brick through a plate-glass window, the press release also notes that players will be forced to “concentrate on the traps without getting distracted by the women in compromising positions.”

Can you lead Aria and Zena to safety, or will they be doomed to an eternity of tsundere in-fighting?

Prison Princess is available now on Nintendo Switch and arrives on PC April 3.
