This game is the sequel to Adarna, which was released in the year 2015.
In the original 17th century Ibong Adarna tale by Jose de la Cruz, the Princesses Maria Blanca, Juana and Leonora were merely the girlfriends of the protagonist Prince Juan. At the end of the corrido, Juan picks Maria Blanca as his preferred wife, while the other two women became the wives of Juan’s brothers, Pedro and Diego. All three women had interesting backgrounds, but the way they were treated in the story left something to be desired. This is a manuscript that is often discussed in Filipino literature classes, but the portrayal of women — either as damsels in distress or prizes to be chosen — are not empowering. (more…)

Many of our players have requested for a turn-based version of Song of Pisces, the hack and slash role-playing game that we have released in May of 2015. This is us delivering what was requested.
