About the Game & Features in Development:
If you’re a fan of RPGs, puzzle brawlers, or exiled princesses trapped in a minotaur's body, you are in the right place! Minotaur Princess is the story of Andrea, a princess who gets her body swapped with a minotaur and exiled to a faraway land. Now she must embark on a journey to find her homeland and reclaim it. Learn new items and abilities to customize your moveset before combat.

Intense Combat

  • The combination of turn-based attack planning and real-time combat gives you time to plan your attack while making you react to combat situations in real-time.
  • Utilize 100+ different attacks and abilities to conquer your foes.
  • Meet over 100 unique characters; some will be friends, and most will be foes.
  • The 7 realms of Urasha have their own subcultures and unique challenges they bring to the goal of reuniting… with yourself.
  • Control your fate in combat: Skill matters. The difference between a poorly and perfectly executed fire spell is invoking a small flame and summoning a devastating meteor from the heavens.
  • Summon familiars to fight by your side, pray to your deity to grant you strength, throw snowballs (with rocks) at your enemies, and beat them to a pulp with your hammer. With dozens of different abilities, you can create your combat style.
  • Each ability has four tiers with varying degrees of power depending on your skill.

Competitive Multiplayer
  • Play against friends in VS mode.
  • Choose between over a dozen characters, each with their own movesets.
  • Three different VS modes of combat allow for a multitude of ways to beat the crap out of your friends!

Bad-ass soundtrack
Do you have ears? Show them some love and treat them to the beautiful and intense sounds of the seven realms of Akrotheria.

Platforms Planned: Steam PC, Windows, and Linux with other platforms TBA Once Confirmed.
