Here’s a couple new mechanics, already completely developed, that I’ve added in the last week.
Simply put: the balance between the living and the dead.
If it rises, during your travels you will more likely meet one of the many living races that populate the Kingdom.
If there’s too many wars, or famine spreading (pestilence soon?), the Kingdom’s Life Force will drop and you will find way more NPCs of undead races!
It will naturally float to reflect the Kingdom’s status but, as you’ll see in this post, there will be other tricks to influence it, for better or worst.
All the wishes for the Putridarium are ready!
- Egg Wish: 1 week duration. Reusable.
- Chicken Wish: 1 time only. Exhausts the Soul. Consider it the parting gift a Princess has in store for the Kingdom.
If a Princess accidentally dies (and you didn’t trap her soul like Bill Murray would have done) you will be able to use the Soul Whistle to get wishes!
Here’s all of them.

I will now proceed to add an additional page to the Status Screen, to show hidden stats like the Kingdom Lewdness, the Life Force and more. It won’t be available from the beginning of the game, but it will prove itself useful if you want to tune the Kingdom as you wish!
