An independent Canadian studio, Black Tabby Games, introduced its second game, the tragic visual novel Slay the Price, with elements of a chorro and a dating simulation.
According to the story, the main hero arrives in a secluded hut on the outskirts of the forest where the Princess is held in the basement, where she needs to be killed or the world ends, at least that's what the storyteller says.
The princess will bend the protagonist to her side with charms, lies, and promises, and will not be embarrassed at any time, nor will she kill him. After each death, the game begins again, but with some changes.
Developers promise time loops, light RPG elements, dramatical storytellers, about a dozen endings, full voice, hand-made pencil graphics. A public demo will appear on August 1.
Slay the Price is expected to be released in the second to third quarter of 2023 at Steam and Itch.io. The studio also continues to work on Scarlet Hollow, the fourth episode to be released before the end of 2022 and the fifth episode to 2023.
