Milky Way Prince: The Vampire Star comes to Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One & PC

Milky Way Prince – The Vampire Star, a visual novel from publisher Santa Ragione and creator Lorenzo Redaelli about intimacy, idealization, and abusive relationships, will make a pass at Steam and the Epic Games Store in Q3 2020. Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One releases will swipe right soon after. This story of troubled romance will have a first date in the Steam Game Festival: Summer Edition, showcasing its opening chapters with a PC demo debuting Tuesday, June 9.

“Santa Ragione always seeks to create games that both challenge and enlighten players and Milky Way Prince felt like a perfect fit for us to expand upon our mission as a studio,” said Pietro Righi Riva, co-founder and studio director, Santa Ragione. “We hope Milky Way Prince leaves everyone as captivated by Lorenzo’s touching story as when it first caught our eyes.”

Progress made in the Milky Way Prince’s Steam Game Festival: Summer Edition demo will carry over to the full PC version upon launch. While the demo will feature English, the final release will also include French, Italian, German, and Spanish language support.

Here is an overview of the game:

A visual novel about an abusive relationship, idealization, and intimacy.
Live a summer of dysfunctional love through branching storylines, twists, sudden changes, and a special mechanic where you choose which senses to use with your boyfriend.

In these moments, you will learn about him, his personality, and his past, making you question everything.

Milky Way Prince: The Vampire Star is entirely designed, programmed, illustrated, and scored by a very young author, Lorenzo Redaelli. The story itself is partially autobiographical.

“During my experience with a borderline partner, I thought that falling in love with him was like becoming part of a binary star system. It’s the rarest, most precious thing in the universe—but the closer they get the more unstable they become. My idea was to create an immersive experience where the player is asked to try to understand the dynamics of this unusual relationship. The character you interact with adapts their behavior to yours—using academic terminology, they could set up ‘rage tests,’ ‘love bombing,’ or otherwise guilt trip you. The plot’s branching storyline is guided by variables such as ‘submission’ and ‘interest’ that fluctuate at each interaction.”

Key features:

  • Semi-autobiographical dark romance story.
  • Branching narrative paths with multiple endings.
  • Intimate new sensory gameplay system.
  • Character art inspired by Suehiro Maruo and Masaaki Yuasa.
  • 3D environments influenced by the stage design of Robert Wilson.
  • 30-plus minutes of baroque electropop original soundtrack.

I enjoy playing games, and gaming is a passion of mine. Among my favorite games are Tears of the Kingdom, GTA, and Cyberpunk.
