Milky Way Prince – The Vampire Star

Here’s the latest trailer for Milky Way Prince – The Vampire Star, along with some more details:

Nuki is an idealistic young man who comes across Sune, who resembles the Milky Way Prince from his childhood stories. The pair quickly begin a passionate relationship, but this is not a storybook romance. Nuki must balance taking care of and supporting Sune with his mental health issues, while not losing his identity and self-worth to his partner.

Take in an interactive, branching story with multiple endings, discovered through dialogue choices and the senses system. During the pair’s intimate encounters, use Nuki’s senses to trigger different reactions, and discover hidden truths about Sune that take the relationship to dark, unexpected places.

Milky Way Prince is a semi-autobiographical story, created by Italian multimedia artist Lorenzo Redaelli. A graduate of Cinema and New Media in Milan who sought to explore games as an artform, Redaelli created all the core content in the game, including the script, artwork which fuses Japanese and abstract influences, and the electropop-meets-baroque soundtrack.

Milky Way Prince – The Vampire Star (Switch – eShop) does not have a release date yet.
