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.
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 is a playable Fairytale. The Story is charming, the chracters are adorable and the gameplay fits it. It's not hard to play through the game, but the wonderful story keeps you hooked until the end. I really enjoyed playing through the game, unlocking all achievements and am glad that I bought it.
This game has such a beautiful artstyle, the music and atmosphere is also beautiful. The gameplay is fun too, but this game is more about taking in the atmosphere.

The brief length can make it feel a little less ambitious, but I can't say I was let down by this whimsical short story of a video game. Lovely art, a cute story, and solid puzzle platforming help make The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince a pleasant ride.
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.
I was honestly really let down by The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince, but it's not a terrible experience by any means. The artwork is really gorgeous and with a bit more work and in a different medium, I think the story can be enjoyed by many. As it is now, though, Liar Princess is an easily forgettable experience. As an experiment from Nippon Ichi, it's definitely different and more appealing than some of their other properties, but even style can't hide a lacklustre and undemanding bore.
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.
A fun puzzle game with a gripping and captivating story. I believe the low scored reviews are from those who gloss over the fact that the game is driven by its story, and less by intensive gameplay. It is a casual, semi-complicated puzzle game that gets easier as you continue to play. Perhaps some may call it repetitive, but to an extent, all games are. The story, in addition the the beautiful art, are huge reasons why one should play this game. Don’t knock the game until you try it. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
It was nice, charming adventure ️ I can't say that whole game is good, there is some issues with lvl design, music after menu theme is awful (not every track, like 50/50), levels are challenging, some interesting mechanics here... After some time I'm tired of walkthrough and kept skipping levels one after another, but in the post end I couldn't hold back tears. Story is quite original, soulful and really non-standard. If this game came under Visual Novel genre, I've been post 10/10, but we have what we have now. I really glad that add "skip level" feature, but ofc u need to wait around ten minutes everytime...
The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince looks gorgeous and it tells a story straight out of a fairy tale, but its mechanics and gameplay sequences leave much to be desired. It would make for an excellent storybook, but it’s best to wait for a sizable discount on what amounts to a frustrating albeit interesting journey.
Gorgeous 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.
SummarySeemingly 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...
