Mechanical InformationEdit

Basic GameplayEdit

Like its successors, Princess Maker 1 is a mostly menu-based game. After entering a name and birthdate for the daughter, the player is taken to the main screen (pictured above) where most of the decisions are made. The daughter starts at 10 years old and leaves at 17 or 18 depending on her birthdate because the game starts and ends on 31st March regardless of her age. The main buttons in this screen let you travel to the palace, talk to your daughter, check her stats, go shopping, change settings and the most important, schedule her activities.

At the scheduling screen the player must choose three tasks for the month, each taking approximately 10 days, and can choose between education, work, vacationing, resting in the town and adventuring. Going to school is expensive, but raises her stats. By doing exams, she can earn titles, reputation and go up in ranks, which will make schooling more expensive and more effective. Working also changes her stats, raising some and lowering others depending on the selected job, and earns you money. Vacationing and resting in town are the main way for lowering stress that is accumulated by classes and work, but cost money. Lastly, the adventure mode is an RPG-like mini game in which your daughter explores and faces off monsters to win experience and treasure. Your daughter does not work or go to school on Sundays.

The player always starts with 500G.

PlotEdit

You play as a hero, who defeated a demonic army besieging the kingdom depicted in this game. However, you soon retire, being tired of seeing death and destruction everywhere, and decide to adopt an orphan girl who shows up one day at your house. How she turns out to be is up to you.

CharactersEdit

Castle FolkEdit

ConversationEdit

Every month, you can have a conversation with your daughter. Depending on what you do and on some of your stats, it will have different effects ! Be careful, some are interesting, and others need to be avoided. You won't always earn the same amount of stat, it can be +1 or it can be +10, it's all luck ! So I advise you to save before talking to your daughter, especially in the first years. If your daughter is a troublemaker, any talk will have no result.

Preach is special. If you use it while Stress > Morale, then you have the possibility to choose between [Preach More] and [Scold]. If you choose [Scold] while Primary Stats* > Glamour, then you have the possibility to [Scold More Harshly].

ClassesEdit

You can learn EXP ( through Military ), Intelligence ( through Study ) and Elegance ( through Etiquette ). Each course will cost you a certain amount of money per day and give you a certain amount of a stat per day. Just like for jobs, if your daughter doesn't do well a day, she will earn nothing ! ( but it will still cost you money ).

There are 3 levels ( A, B, S ) and you have to pass an exam each time to reach the next level. Each exam demands a certain amount of a stat to be allowed to pass it. You also need to pay a fee and win a fight ( for Military) or answer two questions ( for Study ). If you lose your fight or give the wrong answers, you will still lose your money and will have to try again next time. Each level costs a little more money but also grants more stats per day !

When you pass the S EXAM, you gain the last title but beware : you will graduate, therefore you won't be able to attend the class anymore ! If you put the class in your schedule anyway, you will just talk to your teacher.
