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 is a semi-autobiographical story entirely designed, programmed, illustrated, and scored by a young author, Lorenzo Redaelli: "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."

Part of the 2019 Game On (Argentina), Codemotion (italy), and Game Happens (Italy) selections.

FYI, the game seems to be glitched on Mac. When I enter the Milky Way borderline, after I read the plaques, text stops appearing but I see the prompt to press it. It shows up in the log, but not on screen. The menu settings get messed up too, and you're not able to complete the game.

Sorry for the issue and thank you for the report, we are investigating!

Thanks! Excited to finish playing once it's resolved! :)
