Milky Way Prince: The Vampire Star is a visual novel about intimacy, idealization, and abusive relationships.

Milky Way Prince follows a budding, dysfunctional relationship between two young men. Following a chance encounter, the starry-eyed Nuki falls head over heels for Sune, a brooding and mysterious character seemingly ripped from the pages of Nuki’s favorite childhood story. The ensuing dalliance isn’t without its problems, though, as it spawns an emotional whirlwind fueled by the couple’s intense psychological demons and complicated histories.

During the star-crossed lovers’ intimate encounters, Nuki can focus on his senses to guide the experience and learn more about his troubled boyfriend. Contend with discoveries about the fabled man of Nuki’s dreams while grappling with issues including idealization, submission, boundaries, and self-worth. Every decision has consequences and will coalesce to reveal hidden truths and diverge the story down branching paths leading to multiple endings.

Milky Way Prince is a semi-autobiographical tale that draws inspiration from a tumultuous romance.

“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.

Milky Way Prince: The Vampire Star will make a pass at PC (Steam and the Epic Games Store) in Q3 2020, with Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox One releases to swipe right soon after.
