Frantic and fun, Fat Princess pits two hordes of players against each other in comic medieval battle royale. Your goal is to rescue your beloved princess from the enemy dungeon. There’s a catch though: your adversary has been stuffing her with food to fatten her up and it’s going to take most of your army working together to carry her back across the battlefield.

You can switch between five different character classes literally at the drop of a hat: the fearless Warrior, the steadfast Archer, the mystical Mage, the tireless Worker, and the deadly Priest. In order to triumph, players must combine their skills and work together. The name of the game is cooperation, whether it’s helping another player drag a log back to your castle, manning a battering ram to smash through the enemy’s front gate, or building a human pyramid to scramble over the walls.

Key Features

* Casual Single & Multiplayer Online/Offline Action – Cooperate with your team of medieval soldiers (up to 16 players on each side) to overthrow the opponent’s army, plunder their castle and save the princess
* 5 Character Classes – Change your avatar's character anytime by swapping hats: Worker, Warrior, Archer, Mage and Priest
* 10 Unique Maps – There will be 10 maps total, shared across single & multiplayer modes
* Experience intense frantic gameplay across diverse, charming and challenging environments
* Resources & Upgrades – Work together to collect resources to upgrade your primitive weapons and basic castle defenses into superior armaments and impenetrable fortifications
* Unique Game Modes – Select from several various game types: Rescue the Princess, Thwart the Invasion, and Medieval Games
* 32-player Online Skirmish – Jump in and join as many as 32 players online to wreak havoc on the battlefield and carry your stout princess back home during the conflict

At first I didn't understand what this game was, but after hearing 32 player online and seeing what it is, I actually have some interests in it now. This may be fun game for CAG nights. :D

This was shown at E3 as one of the PSN games.

I like the game's premise. The princess has been kidnapped and stuffed full of candy so now she is fat so you'll need all the help you can get to carry her back.

Art style is a little too cutesy for my tastes, but the gameplay sounds interesting enough.

You know, I first I thought it was an animal crossing game until I saw all the blood. ;)

Who is developing this and is it multiplatform?

This game looks awesome. If we can get enough people on CAG to play, I'm sure matches and voice chat will be downright hilarious.

I will buy this. No tentative date?
Looks quite fun, and good amount of options for types of characters.

If there's a demo, that's the big question (since games were proven to sell better without one).

Regardless, I'm liking the impressions I've heard.

this game makes me wish that they'd try to add some DLC (free) to calling all cars; I'd love for people to get back into that game, perhaps with more players too.

So is that a Mana-ism or what? I would like to see where you got that from.

On 1upyours they talked about people using a canon to shoot someone on top of the enemy castle. Also the ability to build new types of defenses, starting with a door, but presumably more later. Sounds like it will actually have sufficiently complex gameplay to keep it interesting. And if people were playing it the game may actually come out soon :pray:

I think Sony had some stats to back that up.

I posted it within a PS Store thread once. Sony analyzed it, and so did others:

Super Stardust HD use to have no demo and did pretty well. A game like Blast Factor which had a demo (and others), didn't do so well.

It seems surprising, but true. I'm not trying to support this idea, just what I've seen.

It looks cute - a redone "Capture the Flag". Definitely looks worth getting. Wondering though, could you do a local 2-player match with AI helping? I know my wife and I would have a blast!

That data does not explicitly say that demos make games sell less. Correlation does not imply causation.

This game just beat the shit out of Microsoft. Sony not only won E3 now, but they also won a free INTERNETS to go with it. I'm buying this day one.
