In a kingdom covered in snow, in a kingdom where the snow never melts and never goes away, there lives a prince who keeps watch over his kingdom and resolves to maintain peace. When the prince learns that his family's history isn't as spotless as he had been told, he endeavors to fix what his family had done wrong and to ensure the continual peace of his kingdom. This will lead the prince to battling the phantoms that prowl the lands, to saving a princess, and to realizing the secrets of his family and his kingdom.
The entire game takes place in Sabine Kingdom and the island that it rests on. The island is constantly shrouded in snow, but for some reason, no one ever feels cold. Plants continue to grow despite the snow, so there is no danger of a food shortage. There has never been a need to question this, so the residents of Sabine Kingdom are blissfully unaware.
Though of course, our prince--Snowe--is not blissfully unaware any longer. A dream leads him to combing through his parents' library and learning that something is amiss. What is our prince to do except try and fix what he had found? He can't just sit back and pretend like he hadn't read about a girl being locked in a tall tower where she may one day die from flames that threaten to burn her. No, he can't do that at all.
The titular prince. He wasn’t even fifteen before his parents died and has since then been raised by the adviser, Richard. Now barely into adulthood, Snowe feels the stress of relinquishing his boyhood ways and stepping into adulthood to lead the kingdom and to preserve peace. Even still, he isn’t ready yet to move on and delights in exploring the lands right outside his kingdom to search for anything else besides his snow ridden kingdom.
She may not have actual royal blood within her veins, but she is considered a princess by her two bodyguards–Hiante and Erio. She lives in the tower and keeps watch of the sky as part of her duty to the late King and Queen. She is armed with a long sword and does everything in her power to keep everything the way it’s supposed to be, as per the King and Queen’s request.
Made of bones and nothing else, his only duty is to protect Astra. He remembers nothing from his previous life, but he prefers it that way. He was summoned by the late King and Queen when Astra was still little and has raised her since. When he is not protecting Astra or arguing with Erio, he is lost in fantasy novels and endeavors to one day be a great knight.
Taking the image of a young man, he has sworn to protect Astra from harm. While he cannot hold his own in most battles like Hiante, he has impeccable cloaking techniques and can teleport practically anywhere on Sabine, provided Astra is there. While he loathes the King and Queen, he has a fondness for both Astra and Hiante (though he won’t admit that) which keeps him near the tower.
A blue haired woman who was charged with protecting the entrance to the Sepulcher. For years she’s stayed there to perform her duty to the late King and Queen, however, she doesn’t want to remain there forever. She always dreams of going back home, however, she was raised to perform one’s duty, so she does not leave her post.
There are two downloads for you to choose from; one is for those who already have the VX RTP installed and for those who do not. In any case, choose which download is right for you and click the appropriate graphic.
And also be sure to check out the wonderful trailer that Volrath made for it! It gets the tone of the game down extraordinarily well! He set it to Iron Maiden's "Look for the Truth" and Volrath did it all in the RMVX editor and then recorded that and uploaded it to youtube.
Please visit Star Stealing Prince's Wordpress for more information! Before asking me for help with a puzzle or boss help, please read the wordpress! A lot of potential questions are answered. I've done my best to head off all kinds of questions with it; if something isn't answered there or you need clarification, please feel free to ask! : )
Please also visit Star*Cadets's main site! I have a walkthrough in progress for Star Stealing Prince on that (will be uploaded to the wordpress when I am finished) and other goodies like extras and other games I and my buddy are working on!
Let's Plays & Video Walkthroughs
There have been a few LPs or Walkthroughs for SSP and I thought it'd be kind if I were to link them for those who have trouble playing the game for whatever reason.
Volrath's LP/Walkthrough : My favorite (but I am biased...) by our very own Master of the Wind creator, Volrath. He gushes a lot, so warning if you don't like gushing. He's told me he's going to do a walkthrough as well and I think he'll be a bit more thorough than michael95.
michael95's Walkthrough : This has no commentary at all and he takes you through the game as just a normal player and shows you how to get through it. It's not the best walkthrough (he misses very important skills and doesn't get their final weapons) but if you want to see how the game plays and all that, it's definitely worth the watch.
Clareain_Christopher's LP : This one has commentary! It's quite long and goes through the entire game. He has the whole game finished (both good and bad endings) and seems to know what he's doing.
Soren Highwind's LP : This one is done the old way of LPing! Through screenshots! I think he's following my guide pretty well (I mean, he found items in town that no one has found to my knowledge on other LPs!), or he could just be checking everything. In any case, don't like watching videos? Have this one! He just has the town sufficiently explored so far, so give it a look!
