    The Liar Princess and the Blind prince is beyond charming. A game of average gameplay but superb art style and story, ultimately delivers an extraordinary, fairytale-ish experience that is hard to forget, and even harder not to love.

    Nippon Ichi Software tells the story of a prince and a princess with this dark fairy tale and its ingenious and varied mechanics. It is not perfect, but it is a highly recommended experience that you will love.

    This adventure game with light puzzles is well worth your time if you enjoy fairy tale aesthetics and stories. I adored the art and music and the only real flaw with this game is the few minor performance issues with Switch version. The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince is a charming storybook tale and I can’t wait to see the next release from NIS’ smaller team.

    The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince delivers a short but heartwarming experience that, despite having some flaws in its gameplay, really sticks with you after the ending credits thanks to its beautiful presentation.

    If you tend to play games for the story, you’ll find plenty to like about The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince. If you’re more about the puzzles and the platforming action, however, it’d be best to leave this particular storybook on the shelf.

    A marvelous plot and very involving world co-exist with unnatural controls, generic puzzles and a sub-par level design, as well as with gameplay mechanics that are not fluid enough to create momentum. Players who can overlook its flaws will be able to enjoy its qualities but others will find it more difficult to adjust themselves.

    The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince is a charming platform-puzzler with a captivating fairytale aesthetic that can't help but draw you in. Unfortunately, things take a dark turn thanks to clunky mechanics and uninspired level design. The lore is fantastic and the presentation remarkable, but ultimately, it's hard to come away from this game feeling anything but disappointed.

The music is amazing, the story is sweet and sad, and the game itself is beautiful in both graphics and presentation. The only reason it is not getting a 10 is because it is a rather short game, but honestly, that's a nitpick. It takes all the time it needs, and that is perfectly fine. I only wish I could have enjoyed the world and characters it created for longer. Expand

The darkThe responsible persons of "The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince" brought out a nice and atmospheric conversion for the Switch. The dark fairy tale captivates from the first to the last second. Moreover, you get a damn nice and atmospheric presentation with a great sound. Though the puzzles became really tricky in the course of the adventure, the actual basic concept is rather simple. Nevertheless, "The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince" is one of the highlights on the Nintendo Switch.

    Story influences - The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Shrek + werewolf mythology + story and mechanics copied from Ico.
    It still felt right even though I was very conscious of it as a hodgepodge of influences.
    Gameplay - puzzles and platforming get moderately challenging and the final boss is decent too.
    Aesthetics - Pretty and a good soundtrack.
    If you like puzzle-platformer games and fairy tales, I highly recommend this.

    A cute little something to pass the time. Decent story, soundtrack and art style.

    Bad value proposition, though. Difficult to justify a $20

    Gorgeous visuals but horrible gameplay; in fact so horrible they included a skip function so you can just enjoy the story. The caveat? YouGorgeous visuals but horrible gameplay; in fact so horrible they included a skip function so you can just enjoy the story. The caveat? You can’t skip until 10 min has passed each stage.
    Instead of playing this game and watching a children’s book story that should have stayed in book format - I would REALLY like to see a making of this game to understand HOW and WHY it came to be. :) Looking forward to more of these cute games if they get a greater budget and take more inspiration from Western indie titles.
