Description

An ancient legend, a cursed castle surrounded by brambles, a forest inhabited by funny enchanted creatures and a sweet princess sleeping in it. And, obviously, a fearless prince! This is what Little Briar Rose is made out of. In this particular stained glass-styled graphic adventure the player will help a whole dynasty of princes complete their quest. Be careful though, many will try, but only one shall prevail!

History

Little Briar Rose was born as a project developed in one month to be a part of the 2014 Indie Game Maker Contest, where it reaches the third place in the non-rpg category. After some critical acclaim in Italy, the game is improved through the following year in order to turn the prototype into a complete game. Improvement after improvement, Little Briar Rose almost entirely changed its original shape, but it still has the same spirit and inspiration.

    - Adeline Gear, The Apptimes
  • "La reinterpretazione, a volte umoristica e in certi casi quasi assurda, del mondo fiabesco classico, oltre all'ottima idea dell'elemento "roguelike" che consente di esplorare anche i percorsi negativi, scardinando una caratteristica tradizionale dell'avventura grafica, contribuiscono a rendere questo un gioco particolare."
    - Giorgio Melani, Multiplayer.it
  • "Après une petite introduction digne d'un bon Disney très fleur bleue de la bonne époque, vous voilà donc lancé dans une aventure, ou plutôt une réelle quête, vers le château, tel un parcours initiatique pour le prince devant réaliser diverses tâches pour des créatures légendaires que vous rencontrerez afin d'ouvrir le chemin."
    - Olivier BOESCH, KickMyGeek.com
