Did You Know That?
Battle Princess Madelyn has been created with the help of developer Christopher Obritsch’s daughter, Madelyn Obritsch.
When Christopher showed his daughter his favorite classic arcade game, Ghouls N’ Ghosts, young Madelyn became fascinated by the game. She would ask for her father to replay some of her favorite parts in the game and watch how the hero of the game defeated the – in her words – “Green Head” boss.
With such fascination, Madelyn wanted to play as the hero in the game, and fight the Green Head. Christopher was then inspired to work on a game that she could show to his daughter that girls could be just as tough and brave as the hero boy in the game. Madelyn even said that the battle princess should own a pink armor.
And that is when the Battle Princess Madelyn was born.
Here’s what Christopher Obritsch had to say in a press release:
From its initial concept days, right through the successful Kickstarter campaign which reached over $212,665 CAD, until its imminent release, Battle Princess Madelyn has developed and grown from inspiration from feedback from my daughter, who inspired the original idea, gamers and ideals from the very best of classic retro games fused with modern presentation complete with gameplay and fun. I believe all our goals have been achieved with much much more added ingredients, features and elements that will have gamers engaged in a game that has been crafted with real planning, dedication and, a lot of love.” Christopher Obritsch – Causal Bit Games.
