Once upon a time

There was a prince on a mission to save a princess from the hands of a terrifying dragon. 



T
his prince, however, wasn't very brave, so his father ordered a witch to enchant a sword.

This magical sword had a will of its own and was, unlike the prince, brave and wise.

Together they embarked on an adventure of a lifetime.


A fairytale with a twist!

You play as the sword of the prince. Everyone in the land thinks the prince is brave and adventurous, but in reality his magical sword is all that. 

Use your mouse to help the knight go through dangerous environments. 

Defeat enemies
Avoid spikes
Slay the dragon
Save the princess!


Don't like reading?

No worries. You write the story by playing it.
Ooh, and if you do let the prince die, we'll just tear out that page!

Controls

You only need your mouse!

You control the sword with your mouse by moving it around. The prince will follow the sword, unless he is scared. Which happens more often than not. Because the prince is afraid of a lot of things. His fears include spikes, birds, green blobs, moles, heights, first dates, germs, fire and of course dragons!

By holding the right mouse button near the prince you can drag him to safety while he shivvers in his armor. You can also spin and swing the sword with the left mouse button to hit enemies or deflect projectiles.


What can you expect from this game?

• 2 hours of gameplay!
• 25 levels
• Experience what it's like to be a sword

I started off with the best of intentions, but I quickly got quite cranky with this petrified prince! He doesn't need to feel slime when he has angered me 😂

A very fun yet challenging game, and quite a good length too. The first chapter took me 30 minutes to get through, so there's a few hours of gameplay here!

Thank you 💖

Awesome game with cool features. 

messy stuff:

I think adding a safe point would not destroy the games feel, but it would make my play session more enjoyable.

Cool stuff:

it was a unique take on the platformer genre. and the art and music fit really well. 

I personally will try to beat the entire game and maybe speedrun it?

buy this game if you like cool platformers and cute pixel art. 

Thank you for playing!
We will discuss your feedback about more safe points!
At what point or points did you expect a safe point? (you can also send a message directly if you want to clarify a bit more)

The game atmosphere is mesmerizing and the core mechanics is pretty unique I would say. The chapters are fun and challenging. Only thing that bothered me while playing is that in the first chapter each time you die you have to read the story again. Other than that I really liked this game.

P.S : Loved the music..

Glad you liked it! Thank you for the feedback about the repeating story when you die. We will patch that!
I'll give the compliments to our awesome audio artist.
Thanks for playing!

I loved this game! Such an innovative and funny approach to game play mechanics and definitely fits with the lore! Had so much fun while trying to complete the chapters! They can sometimes be a little challenging to pass the obstacles or deal with some enemies, but its very much doable if you learn how to control that Sword :) Price is also on point, don't miss it!!

Thanks you!

This game is awesome. This is a (for me) entirely new way of playing the hero. I love the way the prince cowards in fear and you, the sword, do all the action. Beautiful art style. Can't wait to challenge people for a speed run.

We will probably do a speed run event some time soon. With streaming etc. It will be announced on our discord server:

Loved it! A nice condensed adventure with interesting challenging levels.
Each chapter having it's own theme and different obstacles.
It felt unique and not just gimmicky.
I will continue and try to beat my own time and I'll challenge my friends as well :D!
