Developed by Casual Bit Games, Battle Princess Madelyn is a 2D side scroller in which you attempt to save your kidnapped family from an evil wizard.
The devs have shared a heart-warming story about the history of the project:
"When Creative Director Christopher Obritsch daughter Madelyn wanted to be in Ghouls ‘n Ghosts, and fight “Green Head”, he said it was someone else’s game - but he could make her one that was like it. “But girls can’t be knights, Daddy. Only boys…” she said, to which he answered “Pshh…What color do you want your armor to be?”. The answer? Pink! And that’s how this game started. Chris' daughter Madelyn loves the first stage of Ghouls ‘n Ghosts and makes him play it over and over because she wants to see him fight “Green Head”, the Shielder boss at the end of the first stage. It’s not hard for her to twist his rubber arm, as it’s been his favorite game since it came out all those years ago."
There are 10 levels which each include 5 stages, along with some that are hidden. You'll explore swamps, castles, the countryside and more, accompanied by Fritz, the upgradeable ghost of your dead dog.
Battle Princess Madelyn is set to release near the end of year.
