Loren the Amazon Princess (VN hybrid game review)




Winter Wolves is one of the oldest continuously active OELVN studios, which since the mid-2000s became fairly well-known for their straight-up VNs and dating sims, such as Roommates, as well as for fairly unique RPG-VN hybrids. Among the latter, probably the best known is Loren the Amazon Princess. Published in 2012, it kickstarted a whole series of games set in the fantasy world of Aravorn (including even a BL title Heirs and Graces) and gathered mostly positive reactions from the Western VN community. It’s also, to this day, the studio’s best-selling title on Steam, with around 80k owners on the platform.

              Loren… also features a very rarely seen main premise – the player does not take the role of the titular heroine, but of a slave servant, whose role is to assist the Amazon princess in her quest to find her missing mother (and, of course, eventually save the world from a great and unexpected threat). This, along with the very explicit focus on romance, creates a pretty unique mixture, somewhat detached from both the typical RPG power fantasy and even most common fantasy VN tropes. Does it have any merits apart from being slightly different though?

Its one of few decent titles available at winterwolves and this title is their very first VN hybrid if I remember it correctly, I played with it a couple but wasn't able to finish it then I've stopped halfway... Perhaps I got bored with it since the whole RPG mechanics seems kinda repetitive and clunky, however I do like the art in this VN but it wasn't enough to keep my interest up high to continue investing on playing the game...

Well it was nice and all... I had more fun playing Aselia The Eternal and Yumina.... Sundrider is a better option, the first game being free and all!!! :mare:
