Description

The Pepper Prince is a rhyming fairy tale adventure about love, grief, and the power of friendship. Let your imagination take you on a fantastical journey to the Pepper Kingdom where you meet quirky fairy-tale-inspired characters and solve delightful puzzles. The Pepper Prince is a point-and-click adventure for everyone. It's not going to challenge you with complex systems, difficult decisions or complicated puzzles, but charm you with whimsical characters and amusing dialog. The game's minimalist ASCII-art graphics will engage your imagination and help you relax from the constant overstimulation of today. Each episode is a 30-60 minute adventure continuing your quest to help the Pepper Prince and his magical kingdom. Seasoning 1 is released in 5 short installments. The base game includes Episode 1, the following episodes will be available as separate DLC.

History

The Pepper Prince started as a New Year's jam game, filled with silly fun, a donkey with diarrhea, and peppers galore. What was once an idle clicker game is now being revisited in an episodic adventure, because, as Crabman likes to say, why not.
