Once upon a time, in the Kingdom of A, Princess A was about to sit down for a nice breakfast when a message arrived. The princess of Kingdom B has been kidnapped! Quickly she finished her eggs and toast and dashed out the castle gate, eager to come to the lady's rescue.

At the exact same time, Princess B was indulging in her morning lager when she too received a message. Someone has kidnapped Princess A! Without hesitation, she swigged down the rest of her beverage and began her quest to save the fair damsel!

And so began Princess A and Princess B's long, epic journey to rescue... each other.

Princess Panic! is the title of a 2-d yuri game based heavily on the mechanics of Paper Mario and other such platformer/adventure/RPG hybrids. Lots of action, silliness, puzzles, and romance will be involved. At the start of the game, the player follows the quest of each princess in an alternating fashion, and with each chapter, their journeys become more and more interlinked, to the point where the princesses find themselves depending on each other without even knowing it.

As yet, this is an idea blog, and production has yet to be started. It is way too early say if it will go beyond that, but who knows. Stranger things have happened.

The creator and owner of this blog is Josh L, whose previous work was a webcomic named Girly. If you're familiar with that comic you may know what kind of thing to expect here. Any artists, programmers, developers, publishers, and all interested parties can contact him at his email / facebook / twitter

Well, it’s been a while since we’ve done one of these, isn’t it?

While John and Severin have been working on Dungeon Panic I’ve mostly been off in the corner adding bits and pieces to Princess Panic. I’m still pretty confident it will be a thing someday. Enjoy this little bit of Brittany, whose character I recently started working on.

OUYA Stretch Goal Reached, iOS Getting Close!

Hello again all!  Developer John reporting in!

As you know, yesterday we reached goal on Dungeon Panic, and as Matt mentioned we are a Staff Pick on the Kickstarter site.  Awesome!  We are celebrating by doubling down on DunPan work, and good things are happening.

Better than that, though, is that we’ve now blown right past the OUYA port stretch goal, and are well on the way to the iOS goal!  Stunning, really.  As I type this we are at 301 backers with a combined pledge of $5,083!  Another $417 and we are there!  Help spread the word and help get us over that mountain!

Also, we are almost entirely sold out of our limited-number upper tiers.  A massive thank you to all the wonderful people who have pledged at those levels.  We have more tiers coming.  We are still working out the feasibility of some of the material things and will keep you updated on those as we have the deets.  We do have more in-game rewards on the way, one of which will be a Kickstarter-exclusive unique NPC to have in your town and take on adventures. We are having a lot of fun getting that ready to show you.

We are also getting the next stretch goal ready for when we hit the iOS goal.  More on that soon.

From the team, thank all of you again for the fabulous response!  Tell your friends, tell your family, get the word out, help us keep pushing this project further and further!

In the category of “pictures of things the backers are paying for”, I’m sure that screenshots and gameplay videos are at the top of the wanted list, but hopefully one of the sticker sheets will be okay, for the time being. I finished the art last night, and while there’s still a little bit of tinkering to do, but this is mostly how the Princess Panic fairy sheet will look.
Adelaide and Brittany are Princess A and Princess B’s companions, respectively. Both of them are discovered by the princesses trapped inside monsters, and neither of them remember how they got in there…. or, in fact, much of their previous lives at all.  They end up providing much help for the princesses in their quest to rescue each other - not only with their mysterious transformation powers, allowing them to become human sized warriors with various powers to kick monster hiney — but also as fine companions. Adelaide is a bit of a crass and foulmouthed gal whose personality grows on A almost immediately, while B’s inability to talk (per se) leads Britt to feel the need to help her out, causing her to deal with her own social phobias in ways she never could before.
While developing the story of Princess Panic, the fairies turned out to be pretty integral elements indeed. Alas, all that being said, since Dungeon Panic canonically takes place before PP, the fairies can’t really appear within the story, but I’d still like to non-canonically insert them in somehow, maybe as menu decorations, achievement icons, tutorial buddies… We’ll definitely think of something…

Exactly how “mature” the game will be is still undecided! However, right now the consensus is that there will not be nudity.

This is a fanart of the fairy Adelaide in her Monk suit from Princess Panic. Since I’ve not seen any art of her in this class (one of my favorites), i made this fanart of her.
Enjoy.
PS: If you don’t know what Princess Panic is, you should visit the tumblr of the project. Now.

Whether or not Ade will have a monk form in the final game is something I’m still giving thought to, but seeing this, I would feel pretty bad if it didn’t make it! -Josh

Here is an early test for Adelaide’s sprite animation. I drew this quickly as a placeholder sprite to help along the programming side of things. Adelaide will look much different in the final game!

Recently the Princess Panic tumblr has passed 2000 followers, so now Princess A and Adelaide would like to do a live cover of Harvey Danger’s “Flagpole Sitta” for you all!
You’ll have to imagine what it sounds like, since we haven’t cast any voices, nor do we have the rights to Flagpole Sitta.
Thank you, friends. There is more to come.

Final lines and some color to the rough animation.  Again, this is some fan animation for Josh Lesnick’s  Princess Panic. Go check it out!

Here is a fantastic bit of fan animation from k7vin! The wings popping off and disappearing are a great touch.
-Severin
edit: I’m a derp. Her wings become her top! I don’t know how I could miss that after watching this thing loop about 500 times.
