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

A fanart for Josh’s Princess Princess game! It has a Tumblr here: http://prin-prin.tumblr.com/
He hasn’t decided on the colors yet, so I gave them my own color scheme. Sorry if you hate it, Josh!

Still blown away by the amount of art PrinPrin is getting. And by some of the best Tumblrers too. Thanks Yamino!
There’s no wrong answer when it comes to color schemes :)

People have asked about all the changing color schemes, and it’s really just me tossing out possibilities. So far I’m still pretty partial to green-haired A, though the red B from the recent illustration looks pretty neat to me.

Ultimately it may be nice to give the players multiple color schemes to choose from. there can also be items that’d unlock color schemes based on other well-known princesses/vampire queens/etc. Kinda similar to what Skullgirls is doing. Actually, exactly the same as what they’re doing. Well, anyway…

Actual names for the princesses are something I’ll try to settle on as well. I thought about leaving them completely up to the player. But that kind of thing is more appropriate for games where the heroes are complete blank slates like the first Final Fantasy… not to mention that if the game ends up having voice acting in it, it’d make things awkward.

I admit I’m already feelin’ rather attached to just calling them A & B and I’d seriously consider leaving them this way had this exact same thing not happened to an anime from 25 years ago. Soooo, they’ll get names. Princess Apple and Princess Banana.

Okay, better names than that.

Cool, thanks!

more sketchbook stuff

A question I have received often is “with the princesses gone, who will be running the kingdoms?”

A fair question. Indeed when I first thought up the game I thought about having the princesses being on their own, with no real explanation to how their kingdoms work exactly. But then I thought about how I’d rather not have an elaborate backstory explained (within the game, anyway), but it’d be nice to have a group of people who accompany the princesses, as a means to provide hints about their past, as well as to have people around to help them out when they return to their castles (which serve as the “hub” locations).

And so, we have the Regents!

This is by no means final, but I currently relish the idea of A being surrounded by old bald dudes, while B is accompanied by a bunch of burly beer-swilling guys. In both cases, the kind of environment that’s basically good to them, but they would look forward to get away from.

Also pictured, the princesses in their “morning wear”, which they start the game out in.

More elaborate designs will come a bit later down the road.

pretty good sketchbook session today! I basically sat and scripted the entire first chapter (actually the prologue) which involves Princess A. It’s the tutorial chapter, so I got to write a bunch of silly dialogue and finally get a lot of ideas for gameplay & battle mechanics on paper at the same time.

Here’s a couple shots. When I do layouts and other sketchbook work my drawings tend to be VERY loose, so I’m not sure how fun they are to look at, but here they are!

I’m looking forward to doing this sort of thing with a group. In due time…

I drew fanart of Josh’s Princess-Princess idea while I was waiting on my brother’s dentist appointment to finish. Everything about this game is just RIGHT UP my alley and not drawing fanart would have been a crime.
I would done Princess B too but… they were playing Enya.
On loop.
For over an hour.
I found solace in a blueberry muffin I didn’t know I had stuffed in my purse.
I must have forseen that a time would could when I would need a muffin.
(also i don’t know how shields work and ENYA)

Amanda is a homie.
