    It won't be all clean and perfect, but it carries on a complex story with honesty and intransigence by pumping blood through the veins of its characters.

    As an experience, Milky Way Prince is experimental, entirely unique and one that I’m glad exists. I imagine it’ll hang in the subconscious of most people who give it the time of day, but the subject matter will be too much for some to bear.

    Raedelli has found the right language and the most suitable visual choices to transform into a code an experience that marks forever, and that emerges with harsh reality in the final stages of the game.

    Milky Way Prince portrays sex and toxicity in relationships in a very mature fashion. However, the character and story development is a bit rushed.

    Milky Way Prince is a unique and sought-after title. It won’t meet everyone’s taste.

    Milky Way Prince: The Vampire Star uses an experimental visual style to tell a story about a topic that is very tough to talk about. While it exceeds in conveying these themes, it feels empty and pushy. All of the actual content in the game is condensed into the first few hours, and then there’s really nothing more to it. I enjoyed the artistic approach and themes, but the execution makes it tough to recommend.

    This tale demands more detail. It requires more time spent in filling out the world and its characters. If the game had spent more time on these points, we’d be looking at one hell of a harrowing and affecting story. As it stands right now though, Milky Way Prince feels like a massively missed opportunity.

    This Visual Novel feels exciting and different but deals with a lot of heavy stuff. Give it a try!
