(This was a joint release between us and our good friends at Gaming Alexandria!)
Princess Tomato in the Salad Kingdom being a text adventure suits the home computer well. The game is in the classic On-Line Systems/Sierra On-Line style first pioneered with Mystery House, with a distinctly Japanese flair. There is very little explanatory dialogue and each distinct room is presented like a manga panel with available options rather than a guessing game narrative structure. This style likely draws from the design of the Portopia Serial Murder Case by Enix, often noted as a precursor to the modern Japanese visual novel genre.
