Grats Hyptosis! Excited to see this on the front-page! I just beat the game on my Switch! It's neat to see what decisions people/players make and what endings they get. <:


Highly recommend, especially since Hyptosis is an OG Newgrounds artist who's been working on this game like mad for a long time! GO SUPPORT A FELLOW NEWGROUNDER, FOLKS! :D

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.

The team and I talked for a long time about our favorites and took a vote. Some had amazing ideas, some were rendered super well, it's always so hard to pick. I've personally entered many many contests over the years and know how this goes. I can say we had a lot of ties and debated for a while before settling on how to break those ties.


First Place - https://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/microbihon/a-cold-world-and-an-unlikely-ally

We felt like it was rendered well, clean, and also conveyed the message of the game. It checked all of the boxes.


Second Place - https://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/frogkuronumaart/learning-exploitation

Very much catches the essence of The Guest, even the font feels like it's really his 'words' and everyone on the team loved it.


Third Place - https://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/harryych/the-prince-of-landis-fanart

A challenging perspective but possibly the most accurate image, Evan’s clothing is spot on and it almost to me feels like the cover of a Landis comic or Young Adult book.


I will be contacting the fourth and fifth place winners via PM because there were some ties so I'm going to give game keys to them all.


I'm going to go and comment on each one and convey our thoughts and appreciation for all of the entries. This was a lot of fun for us, thank you all so much. And thanks to Newgrounds for hosting this for us, I really appreciate the help and support guys! Newgrounds my forever homepage :P


This wasn't easy at all, everyone did such great work. Thank you all.

Hi! I just want to say that I really like your game, idea and characters!

Unfortunately, I saw your contest only yesterday, in other post, so I could not take a part. It's strange that your contest deadline is not showed in a front page, like the other contests. But I'm new to this site, so maybe I don't know about rules of the calendar panel... Still wanted to say that it looks intresting and cool! ^^

Response to Prince of Landis Art Contest 2022-12-12 16:51:51


Thank you for your kind words! Keep on creating things and have fun!!
