Milky Way Prince – The Vampire Star on PC (Videogame Review)


One day, while following the trail of a shooting star, Nuki happens upon Sune, a brooding young man who closely resembles the hero from his favorite childhood storybook. The meet-cute soon develops into an intense and passionate affair. However, it is one marred by dysfunction.

Each encounter between Nuki and Sune provides new insight into the pair’s histories and will ultimately determine the fate of their tumultuous relationship. Explore Nuki’s five senses during the couple’s intimate moments, focusing in on sensations that will open up new dialogue options and guide the story down branching paths toward a multitude of possible outcomes.

As Nuki learns more about Sune and the psychological demons that draw a stark contrast between his boyfriend and the man of his dreams, he must contend with his own issues, such as idealization, boundaries, submission, and his sense of self-worth. A semi-autobiographical story inspired by the life of sole creator Lorenzo Redaelli, Milky Way Prince -- The Vampire Star aims to deliver a realistic portrayal of romance complicated by mental illness.


 As a fan of storyline games, this is by far one of the most interesting I’ve seen. The game mechanics work very smoothly, and the different details that hint towards later outcomes (the life of a star poster for example) leaves room for theorizing which is what I love in a game. The ratio of 3D-2D is good, although the 3D backgrounds do look a bit bland and empty. Hopefully a later update can fix that.

The character designs are very creative and very well done, as well as the music choice for each scene. Each background track fits perfectly with the situation at hand. I will say, at first when the first task/puzzle came up, I was a little confused on what to do, but after a while it got more clear as I continued. 

I also love the fact that this was a game that had the same sex couple as our main characters. For a parent of a kid that is in the LGBTQ+ community and who also absolutely loves anime, this game was a hit for my oldest. Overall Milky Way Prince: The Vampire Star is a well made game with a good storyline and interesting details. I would recommend this to those who like anime games, storylines and secrets as well as plot twists.

Milky Way Prince – The Vampire Star is now available for $9.99 (US) on Windows PC and Mac via Steam, the Epic Games Store,, and the Humble Store. The game features English, French, Italian, German, Russian, and Spanish language support.
