A downloadable game
(A game inspired by concepts provided to me by my daughter, Freya.)
The capable heroines of the Princess Council struggle against enemies and expectations as they strive to find their place in the world or create one of their own; working together, they will weave the tapestry of Princess World and attempt to thwart the dark forces of The Fade.
