Growing up, I really wanted a friend like E.T. It was only in later life I learned that people were actually scared of the little cutey? The Prince of Landis on Xbox features a similar tale of friendship between species, but the alien here is a lot more sinister looking. How much can this extra-terrestrial be trusted? Find out in The Prince of Landis today on Xbox, PlayStation and Nintendo Switch.
Set in the 1980s, poor Evan has to deal with school bullies and a father that doesn’t understand him. The town of Landis – clearly a nod to legendary director John Landis – is a peaceful lumber town but one that Evan needs to escape. He can see himself spending every day of his life in this town; a future he doesn’t want and one he wishes to escape from.
The Prince of Landis mixes visual novel storytelling with a 2D point-and-click adventure. With his newfound companion, Evan must survive whatever the town of Landis throws at him: the bullies, his father, his own thoughts.
Featuring original art and sound, The Prince of Landis is available now for £7.99 on the Xbox Store. Early adopters can pick it up a bit cheaper at £6.39 for a limited time. Did we mention The Prince of Landis is the latest Ratalaika Games offering? I think I just heard the faint sound of achievement hunters’ ears prick up. Stay tuned for a review coming soon.
