Content Rating: Everyone10+
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 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.
Even though sometimes the puzzles can feel too easy or monotonous, the lack of challenge can be preferable for players looking for something simple. Being on the shorter side in terms of game length, Liar Princess would not have done any better if the game was longer – in fact, it was a good length for the purpose of the story. Overall, The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince was a delightful experience and is undeniably a story to remember.
Ultimately then, The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince is a beautiful-looking game that tells a charming story, but its gameplay is just lacking. You’re likely to fly through it in less than five hours even if certain sections cause you trouble, and there’s little reason to go back – unless you want to pick up every last collectible for some unlockable artwork. I can’t deny that it warmed my heart after sitting through its credits, but my heart might’ve also sunk at that point if I’d have paid full price for it.
