GDC 2014: Fling Your Character Around Ragdoll-style in ‘The Sleeping Prince’, a Silly Platformer from Signal Studios

Seattle-based Signal Studios is at GDC showing off their upcoming platformer The Sleeping Prince. Before we got into our demo, I was fully expecting a completely different game. I mean, I see a cutesy art style and a game about a royal family, and it’s a free to play title, so I instantly expected some sort of city builder. Man was I ever wrong. The Sleeping Prince is actually a platformer, and seeing as the main character is asleep, it’s your job to fling the poor fellow through each of the levels, ragdoll style. It’s silly and a whole lot of fun. Check it out.

As we mentioned in our video, The Sleeping Prince is currently soft-launched in Australian and New Zealand App Stores, and should be seeing a worldwide release at the end of April. If you’re in either of those soft-launch territories, you can hit up this link to download the game yourself. For everyone else, keep an eye out for The Sleeping Prince towards in the coming weeks. It’s awesome.
