From one of the creators of Alice is Dead comes The Prince of Landis, a new casual adventure game (available for PC and all major consoles) in which a small-town boy learns from a nihilistic alien how to stand up for himself. Published by Ratalaika Games S.L. with music by NG’s awesome musician ThatJohnnyGuy and trailer narration by NG’s own renowned voice actor Joshua Tomar!

Set in 1991 in the bleak backwater of Landis, this sci-fi puzzle game tackles bullying, child abuse and neglect, and surviving such in an impoverished community. Based on true and actual events and places. Except with an alien. It features multiple ways to ‘win’ and multiple endings as well.


Hyptosis: The game is graphic with a few short scenes of blood and violence. There is a LOT of tasteless and colorful hillbilly language as well. The game is 90% based on my own childhood growing up in a very small town in the mountains with an injection of 80s-themed scifi for fun.


I have always loved those kid-and-alien stories/movies set in a small town. Landis takes that in a new--and unexpected--direction by subverting the expectation that the alien is simply a misunderstood, friendly guy. He isn’t that at all.


I wanted from the beginning for The Guest to try to convince the player that it's okay to be hard--that the game is rigged, and if you have to play, you too might as well cheat like everyone else.

I’m hoping that the sales from Prince of Landis will fund the

HD remake of Alice is Dead and a possible AiD 4 in the future!!

Evan - Evan is just a punctuation on his father’s sentence. And yet, Evan is a survivor. He’s trying to grow up in a backwater town, neglected and abused by people he should be able to count on.


The Guest - A creature who, like Evan, has learned to survive in an uncaring universe. He relates to Evan on some level, and likewise Evan does to him.

I will come out of my absence to say that I played this game the day it came out while on a call with Hyptosis.


Absolutely loved the game, and Hyptosis did a fantastic job with it. I highly recommend everyone check it out no matter what.

Oh I am really excited to start sketching tomorrow! I like the character design quite a bit, specially the alien!

Can't wait to post stuff!

is there a limit to entries?

Response to Prince of Landis Art Contest 2021-11-20 04:17:50


This looks really awesome! I love the design of the alien, and would love to do something for this. Are animated gifs allowed?

Just one per person yeah, but I see no problem with comics or animation, etc. Just don't want someone carpet bombing with 30 entries when everyone else only has time to do one.
