Milky Way Prince is first person interactive visual novel about an abusive relationship with a partner who suffers from Borderline Personality Disorder. It’s a Love/Erotic story, between a guy and a shooting star, that follows players’ decisions. The main themes are idealisation and self annihilation/ sacrifice for the beloved one. My idea was to create an immersive experience where the player is asked to try to understand the dynamics of this unusual relationship.
