CAVE Interactive has announced that Mushihimesama aka Bug Princess is now live on Steam. The game, along with the v1.5 DLC, will be 25% off and also comes with a free copy of the OST as a launch day special.
Mushihimesama is a vertical shooting game set in a beautiful fantasy world. Huge insect-like creatures called Koju roam the forest outside the village of Hoshifuri. When Reco’s people fall to a mysterious sickness, the young princess decides to leave the village and meet the God of the Koju, who may provide a cure. Riding her faithful Golden Beetle friend Kiniro, Reco must traverse the wilds, braving the hostile landscape and the aggressive Koju beasts on her journey through the Shinju Forest. It is the definitive shooter from the pioneers of the “bullet hell” genre!
