Battle speed update

Hello all,
I've updated the currently live version with a fix for the battles.
In practice trimming the "battle log" so that would show only the 10 most recent actions resulted in a huge speed increase, in particular for long fights where the log was becoming very big.
The difference is more noticeable on low-end systems, but even on my relatively new system I can see the difference.

Acerca deste jogo

Loren The Amazon Princess is a fantasy epic combining intricate turn-based battles with a heroic tale of overcoming evil -- with a twist! In this tale, you play as a loyal servant of the hero rather than the hero herself.

Travel by Princess Loren's side as she searches for her lost mother, the Queen of the Amazons. Guide her choices and act as her valiant defender, meeting many colorful characters along the way. As the journey progresses, everyone will grow and change -- character development in games isn't dead! It's also impossible to see all the content in just one playthrough, with so many ways to customize the characters.

Hardcore role-playing games with replay value are becoming rarer in today's age of simplification for the masses. The developers of the hit title Planet Stronghold have dedicated themselves to keeping old-school RPGs alive through this new adventure.

Game Features


Customize Your Hero: Play as a male or female warrior or thief. Decide their backstory, initial stats, and personality. Help them rise from humble servant to legendary hero!

Train Your Characters: Select everyone's skills, weapons, and armor. Over 500 items can be used in 13 armor slots. Class-based skill trees combine with unique character-specific skill trees such as "Gladiator" or "Assassin".

Battles Demand Strategy: Your tactics will be challenged by over 100 enemies: take advantage of weaknesses and achieve combos with your characters by inflicting and then exploiting status effects. All that character customization has a major effect on how each battle plays out. But never fear: choose between two different modes of play when you start the game, as well as your desired difficulty level.

Story-based Gameplay: Over two novels' worth of in-game text depict vivid characters and flesh out a strong plot that reflects your decisions. Optional interactions abound, such as talking with your party members at camp to learn more about them -- or even to uncover a romance.

Inclusive to all demographics. A wide range of romantic interests are provided.

Theme song composed by Matthew Myers and performed by Christina Vee, game soundtrack by Michael Chait.

I loved the game !
It is quite short, I presonnaly like that : you can finish a game while still in the mood and don't have to reload your save month latter. You have some time to develop your characters but you see the finality of your choice since the beginning. The strategy is nice.
I found it rather easy but you have to think during battles. The story is nice but the text sometimes uselessly long. Having romance options is nice but doesn't bring so much to the game, as the different story choice that we can make.
I really loved the visual novel way to tell a story for a RPG game : it is really working for me (I don't like to have to spend my time moving my character and looking for people to seep and explore, and when I have the opportunity to do it I do it thouroughly, so... - yes, it's completly stupid, I know.).
The strategical choice (in and outside batlle) are nice. I like the fact that the story give you plenty of XP, so your different character don't have major differences in level (and so you can switch the ones you use if you want).
Numerous optionnal battle and other ways to win XP or money are available. If you like challenge, don't do it.

Loren has the distinction of being the first game ever where I picked the male PC to use over a female PC for a first playthrough. As a woman gamer, this is really rare! But Loren presents two interesting backstories to choose from and those backstories really do influence how others treat your character and the dialogue options you have.

So, to back up: this is basically a low-fi version of Dragon Age. It's heavily story driven, with several interesting characters, tons of dialogue and interaction, huge amounts of world-building, lots of really cool and diverse types of female characters, realistic conflict between characters, and Loren manages to do it all without BioWare's budget or AAA status. The character designs are really cool (Dora and Chambara are probably my favorites) and once I realized (about 5 hours into the game, whoops!) there was a "fast combat" option in the menu to speed things up, the classic turn-based combat made me fairly nostalic. My big complain with the game would probably be the skill trees, partially because for strength-based (warriors) characters most of the skills were useless and for will (mages) and skill-based (thieves) the skills were often unbalanced and there's never a marker to tell you when/how you can gain certain skills (is it progression? A certain level of will? What? Why can I NEVER pick that skill?). It gets frustrating, particularly at higher levels, as the skill points you receive are minimal throughout the game.

Regardless of my frustration with the skill trees (and by about hour 7 I just gave up and started auto-assigning), Loren's definitely one of the better RPGs I've played recently. I'm looking forward to the other playthroughs I intend to do to see alternate paths, romances, and endings.

Let me just say that Winter Wolves is a company who ought to get much more in the way of support- because this game is essentially one of the greatest visual novel games I've ever been able to play.

Loren the Amazon Princess is a game that is actually worth the full price- a rarity in these times, but if you like fantasy or adventure games, you'll want to grab this. For once, you don't even play as the title character- instead, you play the second banana- either a human male slave, or an elven female. The character you choose may have different observations about certain scenarios, and they may have a different set of people they might start a relationship with, but to be quite obvious, that's all the difference between them. Both the male or female characters can get the same moves and the same classes, so really the only thing you're getting is a different view of the world.

Combat is actually very well-handled- you just place your characters, and go. Their turn comes up, you pick a skill or an item to use, and then you repeat until the combat is done. You'll always have a healer on hand, because whatever you pick for your character- gender or class- you get a class of Healer right off the bat.

As far as the story, it's actually well-written, and the characters have their own personalities. You can talk to them in camp, you can flirt with a certain few of them, and if your scores are high enough, you'll even end up having to make a choice in a lovers' triangle between two party members- or maybe even more. There are both gay and straight options for both male and female characters- even more than Dragon Age, for crying out loud, and that's saying something.

There's even a bit of DLC, which unlocks four more party members and expands the third chapter with an entire new area. It is completely worth it, no matter what.

Finally, a bit of warning: Yes, the Steam version is the toned-down version. There's a wokaround that you can use, but fair warning- this does create some NSFW scenes in the story, and changes some of the outfits on characters. Take it as you will.

All in all, I would play this again and again and again, unlike some full-price console games and the like. Go buy this game!

The game is highly story-driven and relies on character interaction as a main motivation to finish it. It reminded me very strongly of Dragon Age. The main plot is a typical "save the world from evil"-story, but you experience it all as the servant of the heroine. The combat system is similar to classic JRPGs, but a bit flawed and easy to exploit (speed). The art style is anime/manga-inspired and the characters are somehow stereotypical. Nonetheless, I can full-heartedly recommend this great little indie gem.

This is a fun fantasy roleplaying game with lots of interesting characters and plot twists. I especially loved the different histories the player character could have, and the many ways you could play her or him.

While I’ll admit I was initially a bit bristled at the fan-service in Loren the Amazon Princess, (even with the censor option turned on) it’s worth overlooking as the battle system is well arranged and challenging and the overall story of a young man or woman rising from slavery to become second in command of an army that will save the world is very well done, as is the secondary elements of the story.
I especially liked how each party member character has a lot of character development that can be encouraged by the player, through talking to them and completing optional quests. The most obvious example is the well done way Loren herself can gradually becomes less sexist and conservative, eventually becoming a truly enlightened Queen upon the end of the game IF the player argued with and challenged her preconceptions, presented evidence of the flaws in the Amazon system, proved the worth of men, made her realize the cruelty of slavery ect ect.

While it may be a bit expensive and is definitely only for mature audiences, it’s well made, tells an interesting tale about interesting people and I could honestly see playing through it a second time to see what effect different choices would have on the story.

I would definitely recomend buying this game during a Sale, or full price if you are a fan of the Visual Novel/Party Tactics RPG genre.

Brilliantly written visual novel with excellent replay value!

Storylines were well thought-out, characters were extremely likeable, battle was fun and challenging yet not tedious. Difficult choices were given to allow some impact (great and small) on the world as the story unfolds. My first playthrough left me looking for guides and scrambling to save and reload after every fight to see every outcome possible.

Thoroughly enjoyable, beautiful hand-drawn graphics. My only gripe is that too many places look the same (i.e. all the crypts and tombs), though understandably it's hard to continuously draw new locations and the different characters that appeared kept the game fresh.

Definitely recommended to buy!

This is a great game, I normally find JRPG's a little dull combat wise but I found this one a lot of fun, and the story is great! The romances are really well written and the sheer variety is awsome.

"Loren The Amazon Princess"'s game mechanics reminded me of the very simple games I played as a kid, such as the original (think 1980s) Bard's Tale or Wasteland that you could play on the old Apple II. I liked it. Not every gamer is a twitch player, so this was a non-frustrating game to play.

I liked that the player had a ton of different romanceable companions, and endings, depending on the pc's gender and personality style. (Hence the many play throughs to see all the different endings.) Some of the relationships, however, felt creepy/abusive - the kind where you'd tell a girlfriend to WALK AWAY THIS GUY IS BAD NEWS sort of thing.

About a quarter of the writing fell into the "purple prose" category. I could have done without all the internal musings by my character; it felt that the amazing dialogue between certain characters and reparte was written by one author and the internal musings was written by the author's angsty emo younger sibling.

That being said, I really enjoyed the game and the dlcs. Played "Loren" for at least 39 hours, so I got my money's worth. Hoping the developer's next game - Season of the Wolf (?) when it comes out is equally good. And now that I've written a review of the game, I'll probably poke my nose into it some more.

I liked the story and the diffrent results you can get especially with the DLC!
The combat is sadly very if you set a small amount of time to farm exp you will crush most enemies with ease but the combat is more to give the game som variety.
If you think the concept of the story would be something you could like I would recommend that you get it.

It has a lot of story and is playable multiple people to romance. Well writen story. Game play is simple and quick. Some menu issues that could be fixed. My bigest complaint is that there is no way of knowing if there is new dialogue or not for your companions.

I hate overly positive reviews. The entire review scale on most websites has been shifted because these incarnations of Pollyanna insist on giving everything 10s. Just the thought that 3/5 or 5/10 isn't considered "average" makes me want to extract vengeance on the endless parade of perfect scores. Now that I have adequately set myself up as hypocrite of the year, let's begin the review.

This game is about Loren, who happens to be the princess of the Amazons (yes, I am Captain Obvious, and I'm going for promotion - I like the sound of "Major Obvious"). Going against all gaming tropes, she doesn't get kidnapped, nor do you play as her. Loren: The Amazon Princess begins with the titular character decapitating some training dummies, then berating her slaves for failing to provide more. She is then quickly informed that her mother (the Queen) did not return and is presumed dead. Loren rejects this and embarks on a mission to save her mother, but the captain manages to force Loren to take the Amazon's most prized slave - that's you.

This game's greatest strength is its characters. Sure, Loren may be a terrifying-dual-sword-wielding-badass, but she's also never left the citadel before, and it shows. Within an hour of starting the game, she will have demanded to speak to the Queen of a republic, choked a bartender for the crime of ignoring her, and referred to the Amazons as better than all other nations. Other characters are no less entertaining, as you meet characters like Draco Firestarter - a fire mage who likes to start fires (am I a major yet?) and manages to cause the rest of the party to burst out laughing every time he talks, or Dora the explorer nicest thief in town - she teaches that the best way to make friends is to give them money.

This does lead me to one of this game's few flaws - while the dialogue is well written all around, you have little insight into what your character will say. Every dialogue choice you make is one of four options - Joking, Friendly, or Forceful - and occasionally Romance. While the latter always progresses that character's romance, the first three aren't very clear on what you're about to say. For example, early in the game you arrive in a nearby city and Loren insults it. Your response? Joking, Friendly, or Forceful, without any indication on whether an option agrees with Loren or not. The only surefire way is to save before you choose, then pick every option and see which you'd prefer.

The graphics are a matter of taste - this game isn't meant to melt your GPU to your motherboard. Many of the reviews seem to hate the graphics, I personally enjoy the graphics. The only graphical issue is with a few of the backgrounds - I noticed stairs leading up to a castle tower looked exactly the same as stairs to an inn's rooms. Minor, but a little strange. Overall though, I'd suggest looking at screenshots and seeing for yourself if you like the graphics. I really don't suggest deciding to purchase (or not) a game based on graphics.

The gameplay is fairly straightforward if you've played RPGs before - everyone is either a warrior, a thief, or a mage, and you've got Strength, Skill, and Will to put points in. Certain enemies might be weak against or resistant to certain elements (you used typhoon on fire demon! It's Super Effective!). However, there are a few gameplay elements that aren't self-explanatory, and they aren't explained to you either. For example - dual-wielding carries a penalty (except on Loren, who has a skill to remove this penalty). However, if you wield a dagger in the offhand, you aren't penalized - the game never actually tells you this. It also doesn't bother clarifying stats such as "Attack" , "Damage" (aren't they the same thing?) and "threshold" (I still have no clue that this does).

The vast majority of modern games have a few places at which you can choose a different path - and it almost always comes across as a failed attempt to get the player to play the game again. This is one of the few games where it actually works - once I finished the game, I was ready to start over with another character right then and there. Very few games have such replay value, but many of the choices you make actually give you a different story for a while.

This is one of those rare titles that actually appeals to gamers that care about characters and story, rather than running 4096x2160 at 120fps, or shooting everything you see with generic guns and getting racial slurs in return. If this type of game doesn't appeal to you, then go download Duty of Calling: Fieldbattle 12. But if you care the slightest about deep characters or a game that can pull you into its world, then I can't recommend this more.

Pretty decent game if you can get over the magical realm fetish-fuel aspect. Combat is a little bit like Eye of the Beholder, but unfortunately doesn't have it's sense of exploration.

Being a game about narrative and character interaction, a big problem is when the game gives you options on how to respond, it's very vague about what that response actually is: for example, if someone calls your friend an a-hole, you might get three choices: joking, friendly, or forceful. So you pick forceful, thinking you're going to put that jerk in their place, only to realize afterwards that "forceful" meant "forcefully agree", and your character says something like "YES HE SURE IS A SERIOUS A-HOLE."

Also, during the first part of the game, the vast majority of the loot you find or have the option to purchase will be considerably worse than the gear you start with, which will leave you a little bored with some of the RPG elements, at least early on.

Could recommend if you're a fan of visual novel-type games and it's on sale.

This game honestly gets boring quite fast. I don't know if I've played enough or not, but for the price I paid for it I honestly expected it to be a bigger game-the map just feels so tiny. My biggest gripe with this game is the difficulty level. Normal mode is too hard for me, and easy is way too easy. A child could play it, since all you need to win in easy mode is click around. Normal mode however, is virtually impossible for some battles. It's ridiculous.

The only thing I do like about this game however, is the characters themselves and the relationship system. Other than that this game is pretty boring to play.

Overall 6/10

It's an "old style" RPG, with very basics graphics, simple combat and a cute storyline.

Pros:
- Very easy to understand while not too easy to win.
- The storyline has some merit.
- You can play it in a tiny window while doing other stuff or even on an ancient system.

Cons:
- It has no replaybility value of sorts, it somehow feels as a cheap fantasy novel.
- The combat is really, really simple
- Absolutely not an open world kind of game

In a nutshell, if you get it at a very cheap price it's worth it, for a change and for something that doesn't require too much of an effort.

I wished for a 'thumb to side' as this game actually has some moments of enjoyment but they just can't outweight the disappointment, all here is just to basic to be seen good like the stats:
You have 3 stats:
Strength
Skill
Will

With each class having one main stat (all warrior like classes have strength, etc) but there is absolutely -no- point in leveling up ANYTHING OTHER than you main stat, in most RPGs that utilisize such a system lvl'ing a stat that is not important for a class (for example strength for mages) provides at least some use, here... nope, all attacks scale on the main stat and to a lesser extend to the secondary stat, but since the latter gives nothing else ileveling it provides you with less attack damage and nothing to make up for it.
Then this priced thing of you being the servant (read: slave) of the hero... well again it changes exactly... nothing
Oh exept that instead of '[PLAYERNAME] takes the party to X' it is 'Loran (your mistress) says that you go there', on most occasions you can just choose what -she- says, so there again is no real change exept for the change in the dialogues...
Which brings me to the next point: The text, in a game that is half a visual novel you would expect its text part to be the strong point of the game, this text is mediocre maybe, but not more.

The story initself is as clichee as it can get, read some other reviews, when you want to know more about this, because i find that they describe the story pretty well, in short:
As clichee as it can get,
'Kill X to make me trust you' like quests for progression

'Hardcore role-playing games with replay value are becoming rarer in today's age of simplification for the masses. The developers of the hit title Planet Stronghold have dedicated themselves to keeping old-school RPGs alive through this new adventure.' when i read that after playing i just had to laugh since the combat was as simplistic, 'grind-like-hell'ish, 'just-smack-you-on-da-face'-style, no strategies required. There's fundamentaly no depth in it, just choose the attack with most damage and start killing the baddies.

Again this is not a bad game per se but its not worth its money as is, haven't the DLC hence I don't know if this changes some of this.

EDIT: Forgot to add that the dialogue choices are annoying at best since there are only three... in every dialogue... remember those old games where your character seemingly hadn't enough brain to say anything other than variations of 'yes' or 'no' with no room for something like 'well cool but could we instead do [OPTION 3]' or something like that? Now you've got 'Joking' 'Friendly' and 'Forceful' which are sometimes totally unintuitive. Imagine: You see your master arguing with someone, then both for some reason turn to the slave to ask for his/her opinion, since the argument started to get very heated you should think that 'Joking' brings your character to do something funny to loose up the situation... well no it could be that you just joke ABOUT either of the persons involved in the argument (read: A your master... probably not a good idea, or B: For example a major of some town... also not a good idea to provoke him... as a slave), I'm not saying that this happens everytime you cllick on joking its just that sometimes the result is just so far away from what you'd expect from that option.
Ofcourse you can just use your mousewheel to scroll back in the conversation but still this seems so annoying.


Lastly the 'romance scenes' for that you should read abundantgrace's or Striker Eureka's reviews as I think they describe them pretty good.

TL:DR:
Is it a good game? Hardly albeit quite enjoyable at moments
Is it a decent game then? Pretty much so, expect nothing to write home about but still you should be able to enjoy it somewhat
Is it worth the money? Thats a though question depending if its your cup of tea, if you are curious about buying iti wait for a sale and grab it there.

The comparisons to Dragon Age are what made me buy this game. However, it isn't nearly as polished and lacks the twists and depth of DAO had. I wasn't expecting it to be perfect, but it certainly fell short of expectations.

Most of the characters in this game don't have varied dialogue styles. As a result, they come off as having been written by the same person. Rather than having distinguishing characteristics, they seem very archetype based and lack further depth. Dialogue choices don't really give the player a feeling of control or influence in the game, unlike in DA:O.

The gameplay is largely uninteresting. The game has two parts: dialogue and encounters. The former tends to feel forced-- some of the dialogue scenes are better written than others, but overall one tends to feel railroaded and loses very little skipping through dialogue scenes to the end.

Encounters are largely predictable, especially once having settled into a routine. Turn based dice rolling with few animations makes encounters a matter of how fast you can spam commands to get through them. There is no overhead positioning strategy, simply front and back rows and a few types of combination attacks.

For the price, I would say this game is not worth it. If it came down, it might be.

This was a fun game, with good replay value if you like finding multiple endings - especially since you can enable Story Mode (basically cheat mode) after you beat the game once. If you want to find all the endings, the Story Mode/Skip Seen Dialogue combo is amazing, and will keep your head from exploding from all the repetition.

Yes, exploding heads are bad... <-- name that badly re-worded reference!

And while we're referencing it, yes - this can be compared to Dragon Age, although it's much smaller in scale.

There's a system where certain decisions you make will effect the ending. I think some of the added content from the Deluxe Version also has an effect?

And then there's the romance options. There are 6 in the regular version, 8 in the Deluxe Version, with different combinations of GxB, GxG, and BxB. 4 of the romance options prefer either Saren or Elenor, but the other 4 are open to either character you choose. And, if you romance someone, it's reflected in how the Epilogue changes.

The dailogue is really well-done too. Dependinging on whether you choose Friendly, Joking, or Forceful, you get different reactions from people, and most of it is pretty entertaining. :)

The biggest difference between the two games is the battle system. In Loren it's turn based, like what you would see in an older Final Fantasy set-up.

I definitely suggest getting the Deluxe Version of this game. Without it, there are 4 characters you won't get (2 of which are romance options). Check this one out if you like RPGs, games similar to Dragon Age, and/or games that have romance options. :)
